A New Year...

I am not going to do a recap of how last year was and talk about what I am looking forward to in this new year. Instead, I am going to do something I did several years ago...choose a word for the year and do my best to live by it.  

There may be some major changes in my life this year, so I need to stay on track with this to come out at the end of the year in better shape...physically, emotionally, financially, and especially, spiritually.

For this year, I chose the word better.  

As in, be better.  

At what?

Well, everything.  

Be a better sister and daughter, a better friend.  Be kinder and gentler, less judgmental.  Be a better mother and grandmother.  A better daughter to God, giving priority to Him.  Listen more, gossip less.  Be better to myself...eat healthier and move more.  Be a better me...you know, the person who lurks inside of me.  Be better at whatever I do.   

Just.  Be.  Better.

Another way to put this is that I just really need to pay attention...to be aware of what I'm doing, what I'm thinking and what I'm saying.  I want to look back and see that I am better than the day/week/month before.  That I made changes in what I did or didn't do.  I want each day to be better.  No simple feat, I suppose...it's all a matter of taking the time to do my very best.  To being better

This day next  year is going to come no matter what I do or don't do...will I be better

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of you.  You read all of my words and take time to make comments.  You support and encourage me.  You think everything I do is wonderful (well, at least those of you who comment do...~grin~).  You love my Tag.  You are friends to me.  I appreciate you all.  Thank you. 

Many Blessings to you and yours in 2014.
