If I am honest with myself then I would say that the last three years have been quite the roller coaster ride. 2010. Wow, what a year. I am not sure I have ever lived a year that was filled with such incredible highs and such devastating lows. I literally didn’t think 2010 would ever end. I like to look at the beginning of a new year as the opportunity for hope and optimism.
As I did last year, I have chosen a word as my One Little Word. This year I chose "Simplify". It is my hope and focus for the year to simplify my life. Not just in big things, but in small things, things that I generally take for granted, things that fill my everyday life. It is something that I have been working on and plan to actively continue to work on for all aspects of my life; mind, body, and spirit.
Today I decided that I also needed a second word, "healing". The last three years have been filled with trials and tribulations, many of which has left me wounded and in need of healing. I believe that all of these things that broke me over the last three years will make me stronger. I don't think it will happen in a day or in weeks. I think it will take some time, but once it does I will be a better spouse, mother, and person than before.
I am ready to get started. I am ready to simplify and ready to continue on my journey towards healing….
