New Year's Resolutions...

Another fresh new year is here,
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

- William Arthur Ward


I read this quote today and it was perfect. I already made up my mind on my New Year's Resolutions a while ago...

*I am going to focus on what makes me HAPPY...
-I am going to play with the kids more (ya know the real playing and interacting... on the floor playing, making a mess, having a good time, PLAYING) NOT the half playing as I do three other things!
-I am going to scrapbook what I want, using the supplies I want, and the ideas I want. I find myself scrapping EXACTLY what the calls are for... the pages aren't as great, and I don't get fully creative doing them. I am scrapping what makes me happy and if it works for something... hurray!
-I am going to spend one-on-one time with my husband, Ryan. Ya know "Date night"?? Since I can honestly say the last time we went on a "date" was our anniversary... TWO years ago!! The date we decided to try and have another baby... hope that doesn't happen again or I will have to cancel date nights!! {wink, wink!!} (Hope you are reading this honey!)

So I just thought the quote was great... I am going to love (my family), laugh (having fun along the way), and give (myself & my time to the people who mean the most!)

Oh, and if I could get skinny along the way that would be a plus!! {hehehe}

What are your resolutions???

3 friends had to say...:

What a great post!!!!! I had to agree with everything you said(minus the scapbooking, but I could substitute that one for my vinyl business)...as if it was myself! I will post mine on my blog, but I must say, I have to agree COMPLETELY about the playing with the kids more.....the REAL playing!!! I am going to work on that too!!!!
Happy New Year!!!!!!!!

Yep, I am working on the "playing" too! I love to play, and I catch myself, watching my hubby play with the kids!

I am joining this year.

I am headed to my blog now! You've inspired me to post my goals!!
