I don’t make specific New Year resolutions because I know you can’t keep them just as I know diets don’t work. With every loss cell of collagen as you get older you actually do get wiser. Cost, benefit relationship.
As the kids get older the parenting gets less intense, less hands on. They get more expensive, I wasn’t quite expecting that. They don’t need me like they use to. That brings about some sadness but at the same time I enjoy their independence. They need to be independent, honestly, before you know it they will be flying the coop. They need to know how to survive. I need to call off the helicopter and active the GSP. I will be broken hearted. Which is why I also must prepare and begin working on my life after kids. Saying that, I so wish I could freeze time. We are all at the perfect age. They need me but not too much, they are great to travel with, they can be left alone for periods of time, they are still young ducklings, not too grown up yet but able to make themselves a sandwich and not starve.
So, why and I talking about my boys in this “I don’t make new year’s resolution post? ”
Because I want to freeze time. I have had an amazing year. I feel that despite the challenges I have, I have pushed through, maybe this year the pushes were less or the door wasn’t always as heavy. I just know that I am happy most of the time and I am not afraid all of the time.
Aside from jetting off to live in some tropical destination to pursue my dreams of acting and singing. Splitting my time between living off the grid and in the penthouse in Las Vegas. Being happy most of the time and not afraid all the time is good enough. I will take it! Good enough is great. I did the hard work and the past year feels like a reward.
Since I am not Elsa, from Frozen and I can not freeze time, only my fingers on the steering wheel. I know this year is coming to an end on the calendar. My boys will keep growing which makes me sad but I am excited about the adventures we will all have as a family.
So once again for 2016 I declare…….
I declare I will be free from anxiety and fear.
I declare I will be an active mother to my children.
I declare I will raise Godly sons filled with love, kindness, gifts and talents.
I declare I will have a loving, vulnerable, fun marriage with my husband.
I declare I will have a happy, comfortable home that brings joy and peace to my family and friends.
I declare I will make a difference in the lives of children, leading them to their gifts and talents. Showing them that they can move above and beyond their circumstances.
I declare I will travel to new places and experience the world and activities that God has created for us to enjoy here on earth.
I declare longevity for my life.
I declare perfect divine health, free from all sickness, illness, infirmities, cancers for me and my family.
I declare I will have a true kindred spirit best friend.
I declare I will use my voice in song to bring others in the presence of God.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
