Dawning of a New Day

So now that all the craziness that comes with Christmas has settled. (and with that I hope you all had a joyous holiday)  It's a Dawning of a new day, a NEW Year is fast approaching with a New Year always comes the list of this we wish to do differently. I am no different there are many changes I wish to make each year and normaly do not achive. So this year I am going to take notice of the things I was able to inprove upon and cheerish thoses changes. And hope to continue with those in the new year.

1. My ability to bite my tongue.

With age comes knowledge and I am learning that just because I think it doesn't mean it needs to be said. No matter how despretely I may believe to be otherwise.

This past year I have done better at this. I said better not that I am now nice as can be, because that would be a lie. But I continue to work on it daily and believe myself to better this year than last and I hope I can say the same next year..

2. Putting my Husband first in my family.

This is something that was hard for me. Go ahead judge if you wish but It was something I truly had to work on. You see I come from a very close family. I am close with a good chunk of my cousins, more so then some are with their siblings. So I have a very large family and was raised that family comes first. So when anyone needed me, I would drop everything which is fine but I would do it without considering how this all effected my poor husband who grew up an only child with no close family. This was something he just didn't understand. So it made him feel as if I put everyone before him.  So this year I strive to aim to find a healthy comprise between not jumping at everything and taking more time to discuss things with my husband. It's a work in progress and something I have to really think about because I put my husband first in my heart but I have to think of how my actions make him feel.

3. My Health, though my weight does not show it yet, I have been slowly learning more about what food is and what it should be. In other words the crap I have been putting in my body for years is really not food/fuel for my body at all. So I hope to slowly put more of the lessons I'm learning into practice for me and my family.

What are your goals for the new year, and what positive changes took shape in your life in 2011????

Lots for me to work on this year....largely staying positive and trying to live in the moment. I am with you with trying to start better eating habits! I have done all of the 'crash' diets, but for me it all comes back to habit and routine...so this year I hope to change!
