Okay a new year, you know out with the old and in with the new. 2012 was like a huge journey for me. I grew spiritually and mentally in so many ways. I grew closer to the Lord, closer to my husband, found out who my real friends are, turned 35, grew closer to my kids. Found a bible study that I seem to fit right into. As 2012 came to a close I began to look ahead to 2013. I started to reflect and pray and see what I could do to grow even further. To let the past be the past and move on to the future.
I decided to take up Spanish. My husband is bilingual and I feel that I too should be able to speak both languages. I have begun taking Rosetta Stone and I am happy to say I am almost done with Unit 1 and will soon be onto Unit 2. My goal is to have a conversation with him completely in spanish soon.
I have begun reading again. Now that Ali is getting older, I find I get a little more free time (yay) and so I have begun to re-read "Battlefield of the Mind" by Joyce Meyer. I have also taken up more cooking and also have decided to start crocheting with the hopes of crocheting a blanket for each of the kids and my dad.
I have found over the last few years that I have become a pretty complacent person. I always thought as a Christian I had to be happy and content with wherever God has me. I am finding that this is not entirely true as yes I am content where I am in life but there is so much more life to live. I want to learn, to thrive, to be closer to Christ than I have ever been, I want the demons and dark corners of my past to stay in the past and not affect my future. I need to stop going to work all day and then coming home and doing nothing but popping myself in front of the TV. I need to get away from the TV, from the computer and spend time reading, taking up new hobbies, and enjoying life. I see so many people who work a normal job and then come home and do nothing..I cannot be like that.
