Hoping for Something Better

Thursday, December 20, 2012

With the new year, I hope that I can finally feel normal again. I hate this time of year. I wish I could enjoy it the way I once did. I loved the lights and Santa and the Christmas songs and midnight mass (getting to stay up way past my bedtime), and TAMALES >:-). Now, with so much sadness surrounding this time of year, how can one really enjoy it?

Besides that, I have to say, I have been reaching for more fruits and veggies. Still working on getting it to that "five a day," but before, I would ignore them even as they screamed my name from the countertop.

I exercise more, and I actually want to exercise. I had a bad night, and so, I decided to take a walk. It was a short walk because so many things were running through my head, but still something I would have never done before. I know that my body is getting healthier, and I hope that the mind will soon follow.

    You are doing great. It's all about continuing to move ..... And move forward :)

    I understand the sadness around this time of year. It can be really depressing. Besides the news, and being the age where we are watching people leave us, the magic sometimes feels lost. Time to make new traditions and get in touch with what is important...your friends and family, and God.

    Wishing you a peaceful Christmas. Just keep thinking positive and KEEP MOVING! :) emoticon

    Hi, sounds like you're making some good decisions for yourself & that's

    As for the sadness, it is a tough time for lots of folks, but I think we have to try extra hard to focus on the good stuff around us, and never take a moment for granted in this life, cause we never know when one of them will be our last.

    I'm praying you'll have a great rest of this year & a SPARKtacular New Year Too!
