With the year coming to an end, I look back and reflect on the ups and downs of the year. Are the decisions I made the right ones? Would I have done things differently? Yes and no. I have found out this year that I have to live my life. Some may not like all the choices I made, but I’m okay with them and that’s all that matters. For some time, I felt that I had to make other people happy before making myself happy. Well, not anymore! Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not a selfish person and will always be there for family and friends, but on my terms. I have my own needs and I also need to be there for Aaron and Brent before anyone else. These choices will ruffle some feathers, but I can’t care anymore!
This coming year I have some things that I want to work on. Some are easy to do and others will take longer, but I look forward to the challenge.
- Create a more peaceful and nurturing home for my family
- Become a more patient driver
- Accept my job for that it is and be grateful that I have one
- Get out of unnecessary debt permanently
- Choose caring and loving friends who will add to the quality of my life and not hurt me
- Start my own incredibly wonderful business that I have been dreaming of for some time now
- Do some home renovations
- Whittle away at the clutter in my life … really get rid of the excess to focus on the abundance
- Speak the truth … even if it may hurt the feeling of others
- Live life on life’s terms … with a sprinkling of my own flair!
Wow, now that’s a list, but I look forward to the challenges it brings.
I will not be posting to this blog for a while. I may return – only life knows
We wish all of you a very Happy New Year! May you and yours have a fruitful and blessed 2010!
Christine, Aaron and Brent Crispin
Just wanted to let everyone know that our computer is down again. I think I’ll ask Santa for a new one! Posting this on my lunch break at school. Hope to be back up ASAP.
surprise: to do something completly unexpected for someone else
humility: being courteous and respectful of others
Lately my days have been so busy, and yesterday was no exception. I worked a full day, had a staff meeting and then class for me and basketball practice for Brent. I finally made it home around 8:30. Once I was home I didn’t want to do anything, but as you know my day continued with getting Brent ready for bed and getting our lunches ready for the next day. After all of that, I was finallly able to sit down, relax for a few minutes and talk to Aaron. It was then when I decided a hot cup of tea, a nice hot bath and a good book would help me finish off my day on a good note.
So, as I settled into the tub I said out loud to myself, “I’m right where I want to be”. I actually suprised myself! It was so life affirming. I don’t think I have ever said that before in my life. It felt good.
Life has been rough for me lately and I am so blessed to have those moments to reasure myself that things are going to be okay.
