Happy New Year 2014
My 2013 was an amazing year. I started on my weight loss journey. I'm not breaking any records, but I've lost 34 lbs so far and hoping to see another 30 lbs leave me - in a healthy way - by this coming summer. My husband and I joined my oldest son and his family for a special vacation to Honduras where my daughter-in-law is from. We had the opportunity to visit with and meet her entire family. We also saw many of the special places this beautiful country has to offer. It was a magical trip. We spent a week in LA visiting my youngest son and seeing many new attractions out there. I also spent much time on motorcycle rides, boating, and doing many other events with family and friends. It truly was a fantastic year.
Understand that everything was not always perfect. My mother-in-law passed away in February. My brother passed away in June. There were many other "ups and downs". When there are "down" times, I experience whatever it is, feel my feelings, work my way through them, and then let it go. But when there are "up" moments, I SAVOR them.
In my "Happy New Year" post of 12/31/12, I said that instead of making a new year's resolution, I was going to make a new year's jar. Whenever something good, special, amazing, or heartwarming happened, I wrote it down on a piece of paper and put it in that jar. The idea is to open the jar on New Year's Eve and read about all the wonderful events that happened during the year that's ending, and ride that fabulous energy into the new year. I AM so looking forward to enjoying this experience on New Year's Eve.
However you decide to end 2013 and enter 2014, I wish you love, peace, joy and magic. Happy New Year.
