Hello and Happy New year! I have been gone for a bit. Went through a wee bit of a dark cloud for a while, still not sure what brought it about. My friend Everlearning thought it was holiday blues. It very well could have been. Even though I have spent Christmas by myself for the last several years and I handle it so much better now(I had a great Christmas day!), for some reason the days leading up to it were hard. It could have been y starting to review the past year and seriously considering my goals for the New Year. *shrugs* I have no idea, but I a back and I am raring to go.
I have set goals and while I didn't start today (I get paid on Friday and will go grocery shopping then and will explore my apartment complex's fitness room), I have been making positive signs to put around my home and desk at work, I have written everything down, started looking for pics and words for my vision board. I am jazzed, I am stoked, I am excited and more than anything else, I am determined! I reset my streaks and will see just how long I can go! I am going to (Spark) streak for a long time! *LOL*
2013 is going to be so Shiny! I also reset my "Tools to Life" program to the beginning. I want to see what new and amazing things I can learn about myself this time. (I completed the program in 2007 and so very much has happened since then. I am a very different person than I was then, so this will be a new adventure as well!
Life is good and getting better! I hope it is for you too!

Wow, I'm at a loss for words this morning. Nothing coherent anyway. I think I feel a ramble coming on...
I'm enjoying our weather tremendously, wore my coat and one of my scarves for the first time yesterday. About freaking time it acts like winter! *GRINS* I want today to fly by and at 5:00 it can slow way down until Monday! I hate the Cox commercial that plays off of Extreme Home Makeover. It is amazing to me what songs I will have in my head when I wake up in the morning...I mean really...The Smurfs theme? What the heck? I hate watching the news, it is so depressing. I wish they would spend at least as much time on good and inspiring stories as they do an everything else. I miss my mama and grandparents. I love my hot chocolate on cold mornings, it's like a warm hug from the inside. Received my first two Christmas cards yesterday, I was thrilled! I love it when my cat sleeps on her back...she's so fluffy. Kinda wish I could stay home today and enjoy the weather all snuggled down. I'm all caught up at work and my bosses are very happy with me! I love being here on SP and look forward everyday to seeing what is going on in our little corner of the 'verse.( which is FireFly slang for "Universe".) *
Well, that's about the extent of my blog for today! *LOL* Told you it was a ramble. That is pretty much what I have to try to tame when I am meditating! In any event, Happy Friday...Have a marvy day! Remember you are loved and we can do it!

I am watching the most amazing sunrise! Pink clouds in a baby blue sky. I am and always will be a morning person. A night owl, I am most definitely not!
My review went very well! I left feeling pumped up and totally appreciated. I got nicked for having 1 more absence in a year than allowed, but that was all. I will do better next year because I am taking such better care of myself! I have only been in that department since August, but my supervisor and department manager are pleased with what I am accomplishing and very pleased that I take on all the tasks asked of me with a smile. They asked me to keep an eye on my little area to see if there is a better way to structure the work flow. They asked me to take the initiative when I thought something needed to be done or if I need to work some OT. I am well pleased with this years review!
On a different note, I have figured out a way to be able to have nuts in my house without overeating or finishing the who lot of them!(Can you say trigger food!) I just buy mixed nuts in bulk, in their shells and that makes me have to work for them. Sometimes it is just too much work to get to the nutty goodness, so I stop after just a small amount. Hey, whatever works!
I took a morning off from dancing, I have been exhausted these last couple of days, despite the fact I a usually asleep by 9 or 9:30 every night. Body could still be getting used to getting up so early and the fact I kind of just jumped in to a half hour of dancing without working up to it. Who knows? I will take my 15 minute walk this afternoon, so I can keep my goal of at least 10 minutes of exercise a day.
Let's make this a FAB day! We can do it! Remember ...you are loved!

Good morning! Well, December is finally acting like winter at a nippy 40 degrees out at the moment. Love it! Went to bed early last night and was up at 4:30 again with 37 minutes of dancing! No snooze button hitting for me since I started! Yay me! *LOL I slept well last night, but am very sleepy this morning. It may be the cold.
Today is my annual review, and for the first time in years I'm not freaking out over it. I always dreaded it with my last boss. Last year, it almost ruined my new year. She can be so negative, despite the fact I worked my tush off just to get a nod. It all comes down to two polar opposite personalities.
My new boss is much quieter and more relaxed than my last one. She has acknowledged my work any number of times and makes me feel as if I am part of the team. HUGE difference. I look forward to going to work and people notice how much more outgoing I am, how happy and cheerful I am. Thank the Universe for arranging things to make me happier and much more productive!
Well, breakfast time and then need to get dressed and head out the door. It is a great day!
Make healthy choices today, and if you get a chance, listen to Lily and Karen over on Spark Radio. They will help keep you on the right track!
Have a splendiferous day!
