Waking up at 6am on a week day has become less of a usual routine and more of a chore! It’s probably because I got used to waking up late, to sunshine, noise and the smell of freshly baked bread! The last few weeks have been phenomenal! After working extremely hard throughout 2010, a 3 week respite in the sun didn’t seem long enough. But am happy, I feel great and am ready to conquer the world!
Happy new year to all my wonderful friends, family, faithful readers; and HATERS! (better late than never to say happy new year and although mine came 17days late).Why am i thanking the haters? We always have to thank the haters because to be honest without them things can get boring around here. Most importantly I want to thank God for being the pilot of my life, seeing me through 2010 and into 2011 safely. Many wished to see the New Year but only a few made it through, to those we lost in 2010 RIP!
I thank God for his word and for my family the latter played a major role in keeping me grounded. Without structure, love, discipline and support from them I don’t know where I’d be today so thank you! I am not lucky to have a wonderful family I am simply blessed! His word has made me a better person, each day I learn something important I must say the bible is the blueprint to living a fantastic life!
Happy new-year once again to all my faithful readers! And to those who have been supportive I love you all! I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas and a great start to the New Year! I certainly did and I pray and hope that this year will be a great year for everyone! I pray that whatever you are hoping/praying for (as long as it’s in line with Gods plans for you) it will happen!
New Year resolutions!
Every year for as long as I can remember, I’ll have a long list of resolutions.
Eradicate negative people, Run a marathon, Buy a horse, Win the lottery (Play the lottery), join the gym, go backpacking, climb the Great Wall of China, etc.
Well that ended 2years ago when I realised that 4 weeks into the New Year id either have forgotten half of what I put down on the endless list, or I’d struggle to keep up with my long list of resolutions so I stopped making New Year resolutions and started setting goals and achieving them.
Saying & doing!
So far it’s worked and each year I pick one or two things and I focus on completing it. Last year I picked up reading (one of my DO’s) and I don’t mean Elle and Instyle. I started with the very girly novels by authors such as Sophie Kinsella and Louise Bagshawe and I can proudly say I am addicted to books and I love reading. Getting on the train to and from work doesn’t seem so bad anymore because am always so excited to continue where I left off.
WHAT NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS DID YOU MAKE THIS YEAR?
- This year I will spend more quality time with my family
- I will give more to those who are less privileged
- This year I will not tolerate mediocrity!
I mean I currently don’t but am taking it to another level now. Call me shallow if you like, but in my own opinion when you spend a lot of time in the bin, you eventually become trash. Sounds so silly but I have seen people go from zero to minus 20! I have said it before and I will say it again “you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn. It is absolutely critical that we be very selective.
Enough said for now, fasten your seat belt, hold on tight and enjoy the pleasant journey into 2011. It’s definately going to be an exciting year & I can’t stop smiling beacause am excited!
Bye for now & God bless!
