2014 Resolutions

Hi friends! Happy New Year! 
I hope your holidays were full of family and friends, love, laughter, joy and cheer.
Mine certainly were.

I've been a little MIA lately due to the holidays but I decided to jump right back into writing with Toni's New Year Project.  It's an awesome little challenge throughout the whole month of January (excluding weekends...score!) that, in Toni's words, "helps us in setting goals for ourselves, injecting more happiness into our lives, and learning to appreciate ourselves more."  This sounds like the most perfect blog challenge to start off the year on the right foot! Don't you think?

The first day of the New Year's prompt is what are your resolutions this year?

Well, after 2013's half crossed off list of goals I've decided to keep my resolutions sweet and simple this year.  My main resolution is to simply be happy and grateful. 
And to accept my life exactly the way God has given it to me, for good and bad. 

It sounds pretty simple, but trust me, it can be very challenging.  Especially when you're feeling down on your luck and nothing seems to be going the way you want it to. I spent the entire year of 2013 writing in a Gratitude Journal app on my phone. It is the simplest, most rewarding thing I've probably ever decided to do (post coming soon).  I can honestly say that I've become a much happier and positive person by being grateful and thanking God every day for everything he's given me. So with this New Year, I plan to extend my gratitude even further. I can't wait to see what 2014 has in store.

Be grateful and 
Happy resolution making, friends!


  1. Wow! Another blogger buddy practising gratitude! Haha that's crazy that I've only just found that out about you. :) Fingers crossed that we can both achieve our resolutions for this year. Glad that you're joining me this month!

    1. YAY for being grateful :) I'm so glad you made up this challenge!
