2014 - A new beginning.

For various reasons, I took a break from blogging for a little while at the end of this year.  This really is not a surprise I'm sure since it's not the first time it's happened.  Now back at it!!

Looking back on 2013, a lot has happened - ups (mostly) and downs, curves, loops but all in all, it's been mostly good.

When I was thinking about finding a New Year's resolution - I reallized that I've never been very good at keeping them so really, what's the point.

Instead, I've decided that I will be taking better care of myself this year without putting down exactly HOW.  The past few months have seen me pretty much turning into someone I don't really least privately.  I've let things go that I would usually not.  Things have gotten messy in my life in all departments and it's time for me to take back control.

I wasn't specifically waiting for New Year's to start doing this, I've actually been telling myself this for a good while, but finally, I believe I've realized that something HAS to get done.

It won't be easy seeing as how I've been pretty good at procrastination of all kinds lately but I will do it one small step at a time.

i'm not sure when or why it all went off the rails, and I'm pretty sure none of you are interested in those details even if I did know, but what's important is that I've realized it and I know I have to do something about it.

What a cryptic post this has been, but I know what I'm trying to say. ;)

In closing, I hope you all have a fantastic 2014 and take advantage of every minute you can.  Be kind to everyone you meet.

Life has a tendency to throw curves at you so make sure that if one is thrown your way, there will be no regrets.

Spend as much time as you can with family; Grandparents, Parents, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins etc.   My close friends are also considered part of my family. 

Straighten up your priorities.  If someone needs you, be there for them in whatever capacity you can.  Don't expect that someone else will be there instead. 

At the same time , if YOU need help, ask someone.  You can't expect others to know something's wrong unless you tell them.  Accept help when it's offered.  Take care of your health (physical and mental), you can't take care of others if you're sick.

Enjoy 2014 and may it be everything you hope for.
