A New Begining

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. 

  1. Create a more peaceful and nurturing home for my family
  2. Become a more patient driver
  3. Accept my job for that it is and be grateful that I have one
  4. Get out of unnecessary debt permanently
  5. Choose caring and loving friends who will add to the quality of my life and not hurt me
  6. Start my own incredibly wonderful business that I have been dreaming of for some time now
  7. Do some home renovations
  8. Whittle away at the clutter in my life … really get rid of the excess to focus on the abundance
  9. Speak the truth … even if it may hurt the feeling of others
  10. 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

Last Night

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.
