Lots of things happened in 2010...
some of the good things....
I made my 1st ever scrapbook Design Team, thanks TwoChicks!!!
My sister-in-law found out she was pregnant with TWINS!!!
One of my best friends also found out she was pregnant, OMG, since she has a 12 year old!!!
and some of the bad...
a friend is still battling cancer, another lost her dad to it, another friend was shocked by divorce
All in all 2010 was a good year, I didn't do all I planned/wanted but hopefully I can change that with 2011.
Being a scrapbooker, there are lots of ideas on how to document the year, some are to take a picture everday, which for me is just too daunting of a task and somewhat takes the fun out of why I scrapbook, another is to pick a word for the year and let it be your focus for the year, and that is what I am doing.
My word(s) for 2011 are FOCUS and DETERMINATION. Focus is pretty obvious I need to focus on me and the things around me, God, family and friends and then Determination follows right along with that so I can actually get these things accomplished.
- I want to FOCUS on my walk with God, many of you know that David and I started going to a new church and while we enjoy going we haven't made the commitment of changing our membership and I think that needs to happen for me/us to fully commit and focus on my/our relationship with God and truly get involved with church activities that will help strengthen that walk.
- I want to FOCUS on my health, I had really hoped that I would have lost 40 lbs by the time I turned 40 in August, but I just didn't FOCUS on getting it done. I want to FOCUS on healthier eating and have the DETERMINATION to stick with an exercise plan for more than a few weeks.
- I want to FOCUS on our financial situation and be rid of credit card debt once and for all. I want to have the DETERMINATION to stick to a budget and not waver when I see those cute shoes or those scrappy supplies so we can dig out of the hole and truly be able to enjoy life.
Here's to a New Year and all the happiness that it can bring!!!
