Another Year Gone...

With every year that passes,
the years seem to get shorter and shorter.
I have taken down all of my Christmas decorations,
but have left the trees up.
It seems like yesterday that we were taking them down and putting them back into the attic.
We had our first big snowfall of the year last night.
(It usually comes in October, so we've been blessed this year.)
The world outside looks so calm and peaceful when it's covered in snow.
I have a million resolutions in mind for the new year,
most of them are the same ones from last year.
I never seem to be able to keep up with my own thoughts and dreams.
I sometimes just lack the motivation (and energy)!
I want 2011 to be a year of growth for me.
I want to continue to become a better person...
to my daughter, my husband, family, and friends.
I want to focus more on who I am...who I was before becoming a wife and a mother.
I sometimes forget who I really am,
because I'm bogged down with daily routines and responsibilities.
(A part of life that still takes some getting used to.)
I want to love more in 2011,
have more fun in 2011,
be wiser in 2011,
give more hugs in 2011,
savor more moments and memories in 2011,
make more friends, be more creative,
and make atleast one of my own dreams come true in 2011.

I also want to continue to raise a polite, generous, and caring little girl.
I want to spend more time listening to her sing, watching her dance, playing games,
and holding her before these times are gone.

Happy New Year to you all!
I hope you find peace within your heart as the new year presents
an open slate for you
to start fresh with your own hopes and dreams
for 2011!


  1. Beautiful post, Destiny! I agree with you 100%. Don't lose sight of who YOU are while trying to be who everyone else needs you to be...I am trying to follow my own advice with that one. I hope your dreams come true in 2011. I appreciate your thoughtful comment more than you know!

    Too funny! We are not alone! Coffee drinkers unite! If you don't mind, I would love to borrow the coffee cup you posted to use on my next post. Let me know cuz I'm going to do it soon!

  8. Destiny,
    I never looked at the e-mail so you probably did it right! I'm a mug girl, like how they feel and not so many refills! Glad you visited!

  9. Destiny,
    Glad you visited! You probably did the e-mail right, didn't look at it, (still haven't). I'm a mug girl, like the way they fill and not so many refills!


Thanks for stopping by!
