Bring on 2013!

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

A new year just waiting for me to explore, enjoying and grow in. Woo Hoo!

We had a very quiet New Year's Eve. Shy and Kyle did stop in, Quin ended up going out with friends and Kaeli is spending time with friends in BC. Garry and I did manage to stay up to watch the clock tick over on our local TV station. Nothing exciting, but very enjoyable.

It's still hard to kick the habits of my growing up years....today will be a foretelling of the year to come by how today goes. Maintaining a happy and cheerful attitude and doing all I can to set a positive tone *grin*.

My Positives:
1. 2012 was a year filled with many opportunities to learn, grow and become healthier, I'm looking for even more positive directions in 2013. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Family time last evening and sitting around playing a board game. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Nice mild temperatures, unusual at this time of year, but enjoying them none the less. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. My cousin's birthday today...Happy Birthday Laureen...hope your day is very blessed. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I have today off work and then it's back to work tomorrow. Thank you that I have a job to go to. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I'm excited about my word for 2013 "challenge". I want to be mindful and challenge myself to exceed my limits. thank you, thank you, thank you.
7, Only two more weeks until I see the specialist about my knee. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. Having access to internet...what a blessing and how much easier it has made my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I am blessed with a wonderful and loving family. thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. A new year, a new month and untold opportunities, challenges, and blessings. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a wonderful day.
Hugs,
Wanda

    Happy New Year my friend. Hope that 2013 has time for some sparking in it for me. I'm going to try. Just got my computer back online, so that's a good start. Let's make 2013 a great year.
Love,

Last day of 2012

Monday, December 31, 2012

Another year is closing and a new one lies ahead. What will it hold, will it be a successful year and how, will I grow and learn and put into practice all that I am learning? So many questions. The great part about all of it....it's all based on my choices! Yep, I am the one in charge of all my decisions and consequently all the results. Bring on 2013...I'm ready for it!

Normally I would already be at work, but this morning I get to go in a bit later as I have to stay later due to year end roll-over. So many last minutes things to do to ensure that everything goes smoothly.

My positives:
1. I can look back on 2012 and see that even with the ups and downs, it's been a great and wonderful year. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. I get to go into work a bit later today, which meant an extra hour of sleeping in. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I am ready for the new year a head. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. My word of encouragement is chosen for 2013, "challenge". I will challenge myself to be the best I can be, to make wise choices and meet the challenges I face with a positive attitude. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. Shyra, Kyle and Quin are coming over tonight. Kaeli is visiting in BC. Thank you, thank you, thank you for my children living so close.
6. I got my clothes closet all cleaned out and organized yesterday. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. We are in for some milder temperatures this coming week. Woo Hoo, no minus 20's and 30's in store. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I will start on my New Year's letter after work today. I'm all organized for it. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9, I just realized that I don't have a new calendar, I will need to stop any pick one up today. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the reminder.
10. It's a great day to be alive, we have said good bye to many people this year, thank you that it was not to any immediate family. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a great last day of 2012.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Wishing you and yours a safe and Happy New Year, enjoy the time with family this evening. I think we'll just be staying in our apartment and maybe watch a movie.

Hugs,

A crazy night of dreaming and being restless, but oddly enough, I do feel relatively rested this morning. I did sleep in until 8am which is very unusual for me.

I made a nice crock pot of stew yesterday using up leftovers from the fridge. Texted the kids and they came and joined us for supper. Shyra's boyfriend was going to join us, but he got a call out for work, which meant heading out of town for him. He did arrive back home around 10pm last night and stopped in for his bowl of stew. Shy was still here playing cards with us, so Kyle drove her home instead of me having too. Bless his heart.

My brother was heading through town last evening also and stopped and phoned us to meet up for a coffee. That was great as it's been awhile since he saw Quin and Shy.

Today, I'm rearranging kitchen cupboards and I am motivated to do my clothes closet! As soon as Garry gets up, I'm heading in there to do just that!

My positives:
1. Having a healthy crock pot of stew for supper last night and the kids joining us. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Kyle was granted travel mercies on the icy roads and was able to stop by on his way home. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Layne is getting lots of work with his rig to help make up for the down time while his truck was being repaired. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. I was able to take advantage of some great sales yesterday online. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. Garry is feeling better with the medicine that he was given by the doctor. Hopefully he will be completely well very soon. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I am looking forward to 2013 and all the possibilities that lie ahead. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. We have only the upper level in our house left to renovate, it's been a long process, but there is light at the end of the tunnel now. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. A beautiful sunny day yesterday...we actually made it up to plus 3! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. It's amazing to see how a grateful and positive attitude is attracting more of the same into our lives. It used to be a struggle to find 10 positives things first thing in the morning when I first started doing this, now it's a struggle to find negative things. Woo Hoo. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I have been granted a new day of life and I will make the best choices possible to honor the gift of life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

Garry made a quick trip to Red Deer and back yesterday. He had a chance to visit with his Mom while she is at his brothers place.
Kaeli has arrived safely in 100 Mile House, BC, where she will visit with friends for the next week.
Today, I will make sure that my house is all cleaned, any bills that have arrived are paid and generally prepare to enter the New Year with a clean slate. Funny how old superstitions that you have been raised on still work in your life. We were always taught that your attitude and behavior on January 1st also sets the tone for the New Year, hence all of us kids were on our best behavior on that day.

Garry heads back to work today and I am going to turn some of the leftovers in the fridge into a crock pot stew for dinner tonight.

My Positives:
1. As I review 2012, I can say that the positives certainly outweighed any of the negatives. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. The negatives that popped up in 2012, were great opportunities to learn and grow from. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. Garry and Kaeli both had travel mercies granted to them yesterday. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4. It's the weekend and I will have time to get my house all organized. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. I am grateful that I own a crock pot that allows me to make healthy and nutritious meals while working on other projects. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I have some gift cards that I received for Christmas that I will go out and use this weekend for items that I need. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. I had two cheques arrive in the mail yesterday, which is a great way to end the year with money coming in! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I have mobility and freedom of choice in my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I am surrounded by friends and family that care about me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. I have been blessed in so many ways and have had the opportunity to pay it forward many times in 2012. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Have a great day,
Hugs,
Wanda

    I like the idea that whatever you do on Jan 1st, you'll do for the rest of the year - so no housework, and plenty of R&R for me on New Year's Day! emoticon

The last Friday of 2012

Friday, December 28, 2012

The year is rapidly coming to an end. It's been a great year of growth and learning for me. I have overcome many obstacles which have made me a stronger person and I'm sure that as I continue on my journey to a healthier me, there will be many more.

Garry finally went to see the doctor yesterday and got some meds. He had to go for an xray and now some blood work this morning, then see the doctor next week for the results. Something, I hope that he does.
He is traveling to Red Deer today to have a brief visit with his Mom while she is at his brothers and back home again as he has to go back to work tomorrow.

My Blessings:
1. My new toaster oven works wonderfully. I can actually make toast in it! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
2. Garry finally went to see a doctor yesterday about his chest cold. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
3. I had a good night's sleep last night. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
4 It is Friday already and I've got a weekend ahead of me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
5. The cold snap that we have been under is finally coming to an end. It's only minus 7 this morning, a far cry from the minus 28 that is has been. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
6. I get to go in to work a couple of hours later on Monday (yes, I have to stay a couple of hours later too.) Thank you, thank you, thank you.
7. Thank you for the gift of healing that is working in our household. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
8. I have been blessed with a new day of life and will make the most of today. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
9. I have my new word for 2013 - challenge, and I will do my best to keep it front and center in my mind as I work my way towards a healthier me. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
10. My year in review is in deed a wonderful year filled with many blessings and opportunities to share my lessons. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Have a wonderful Friday, enjoy the day.
Hugs,
Wanda
