I’m really trying to be better with this whole blog world!! I see how much time and effort my dear mom in law puts into this. I could never do all the things she does and really this is ALL possible because of her. I give her a helping hand when I can, which lately hasn’t been much I’ll admit! What do you do when you just can’t find the words? When your brain is so overwhelmed with kids, bills, laundry, dishes and well…life! I rack my brain trying to come up with new topics to discuss or even just your every day events.
2008 was full of changes for me…all good ones!! Personal changes I’ve made within myself. Some are known to my close family and friends and some I have kept to myself. All to better my relationship with my son, my husband and most importantly myself. I’ve battled my inside demons my entire life. Almost in a way letting them define me. I’m learning that it’s okay to be me and it’s okay to think and feel the way I do. I’m not going to get into all the details but I have come to a place in my life where I can forgive myself and the ones who have hurt me and have begun to heal. My new motto in life is…I am who I am and your approval is not needed!!
I took today and went through most of our blogroll, visiting most and in a sense getting to know each one of you in a different way. I figured I owed that to you all, you are so loyal!! I can honestly say now that I understand the friendships that Joy has built with some of you. I hope you all know how much you mean to her. So this is just a little post asking you all to bear with me in this and I’m making it my New Years resolution to build better relationships and make new friends…real friends.
“Real” friends doesn’t necessarily mean you get to physically hold them or see them. It’s someone who is always there for you no matter what. Someone who lends an ear or advice when needed. Won’t judge or insult you (on purpose) and accepts you for YOU. So this is my New Years resolution to you…my blog friends. I vow to be a better friend, a better person, take the time to get to know you and all your little quirks (we all have them!) So unless your computer crashes, you’re all stuck with me now!! Haha 😉
