Bring on 2010!

Good morning everyone!
The week is half over and only today and tomorrow until the NEW YEAR! Can you believe how fast this year went by? It’s insane when you really stop to think about it!

My beautiful son was born this year. He is the best thing that has ever happened to me and to my family. Being a parent is so much better than I ever thought it could be. It’s SO MUCH FUN and so rewarding. Sometimes I look at him and I have to remind myself that he’s MINE! It just doesn’t seem real sometimes. Ha ha

Tristan being born was definitely the high point of my year. Other than that, this year has been “OK”. I feel like I struggled a lot this year. With money, with myself, with my relationships... I’m just exhausted! I’ve realized that I’ve put myself on hold more and more over the past few years. I’ve let my health fall to the wayside, I’ve ballooned weight wise, I haven’t taken care of my hair or my teeth or my skin. I’ve just been LAZY. I really want for 2010 to be a turning leaf for me. I feel like I’m in such a rut, and a very boring rut at that. I realize that it’s going to take action on my part to make this New Year great. I know that as soon as it turns midnight on December 31 that a magical feeling isn’t going to pour over me and cause me to suddenly be motivated. I need the motivation to come from within.

As you know, I’ve made 101 goals to complete in 1001 days. I’m hoping that these goals will help me get out of this rut. My goals are specific to me and my needs, to my life, to my future. I NEED something to pull me out of my monotonous life and cause me to be more active. I hope that I am successful!

2010 has a lot of potential for Shelby and I. We have the opportunity to make wiser choices, to lead our lives in the way WE want them to go. There will be a lot of changes for us in this New Year. We will be moving to a place neither of us has ever been before. We will be totally ALONE and far away from any of our family. We will have to depend on each other more than we ever have before. We also have a beautiful and incredibly smart son to raise. We want him to live up to his full potential and be a great human being. I feel like for myself I have a lot of growing up to do in 2010 and if I may speak for Shelby I’m sure he feels the same way. We are both excited for 2010 and all it is capable of bringing to our lives.

I hope that each of you has a WONDERFUL new year and you’re able to achieve all the goals you’ve set for yourself!
