Happy 2010

I was going to write the ever-popular resolution post, but after failing to follow through on all but one of my resolutions from last year I changed my mind. (Oh..in case you are wonder which resolution I actually stuck with.....I read the Bible everyday and FINISHED the whole thing! this is a habit I plan to continue doing) So rather than make goofy promises that will only last about 10 minutes I decided to look back and see how much my life has changed since 2000. Yep, when the ball dropped 10 years ago things were different. WAY different. We had only lived in our home for about 6 months. C was only 8 years old. We weren't married yet. Hooch was still alive (our boxer). I was working A LOT. Loads and loads of overtime each week. Our finances were in great shape. I was in pretty good shape since we did a lot of bike riding back then. I had a different set of friends, sort of. I had my most favorite vehicle EVER....my Jeep Cherokee (I still love you Jeep!!!). I was not sick. I was not in pain everyday.

Life WAS good.

But life is still good, just different. If I was given the choice of going back 10 years or not I would pass. I can think of a few things I would like to go back and do-over or change but not enough to give up the life I have now. I LOVE my life. I LOVE my family. I LOVE being a stay at home mom who has to budget and stretch every dollar. So no, I would NOT go back. I will stay right where I am.....Happy, Content and Loving my Life!

So Bring it on 2010!

Have a very Happy New Year!
Given the chance, and my circumstances, I would have loved to go back ten years, if only I knew then what I know now! I would have visited my parents more often, and I would have forced my husband not to go to work that day. But these are things that I couldn't have changed, and if they were meant to happen, then so be it. These past five years have been terrible, so I'm really hoping that the next five will be very much better! I don't make resolutions because I know that I'll not be able to stick to them, but I lead my life as best as I can, and put myself in the hands of God and whatever he has planned for me. For that, I cannot question, but I trust that things will work out right in the end!

Good post. It takes a strong person to be able to look at where they are and be happy at that moment, despite all the pain. Good for you.

10 years ago, life was so different. It seems like someone else's life now...

I think I'll stick with my current life, too.

I hope you have a happy, healthy 2010!
