2010 Recapped

This year started with a bang! :)

I had been given a new lease on life and somewhere along the way lost sight of what was important. People on the outside can do that if one is not careful.

2011 shall be different . . . seriously . . . for real . . . life should always be approached like that.

For starters, this year . . .

there will be no time wasted on insigificant people or things . . .

I will buy a car when I am ready . . . .

at the end of each day, I will forgive short comings . . . of others as well as of myself . . .

I will look in the mirror and be proud of all I did and who I was each day . . .

I WILL unpack the office space in my home . . .

regardless of failures . . . I will keep moving forward . . . .

I will believe when I have no reason to believe . . . .

I will learn to be a better golf player . . . .

I will give my all when it is necessary and hold back when it is not . . .

I will lift myself and others up in prayer . . .

I will go to Riodosa and try my hand at gambling . . .

really . . . for sure . . . without a doubt . . . I will let go and let God.

Christmas . . . .

. . . is the worst living nightmare for a single person . . . .

You would think it would be Valentine's Day . . . but that is just one day . . . it starts at 12:01 AM on February 14th of each year and it will be over in 24 hours.

Christmas . . . depending on where you are in your life . . . . can be weeks long . . . there are parties . . . and these can be endless . . . . school parties, office parties, church parties, family parties, friend's parties . . . . a plethora of gifts to buy on one income . . . . unrealistic expectations to fulfill . . . . it is all about the thought . . . . please . . . . be real . . . just when you think you have everyone covered . . . people you haven't thought about in years come climbing out of nowhere . . . . really? . . . . it is all about the thought? . . . . fighting couples buying loving gifts . . . well, OK, that part IS like Valentine's Day . . . . . really? . . . . if you love me . . . you really need one day set aside each year to show me how much you love me instead of a lifetime . . . . . pfffftt . . . . unexpected company . . . . some welcomed . . . . some not so welcomed . . . . "everyone telling you to be of good cheer" . . . . easy for all to say . . . . I like being single . . . . the older I get the more I love it . . . . but the added stress and pressure of the Christmas season is more than a sane person can bear . . . much less a slightly wacky gal! 'Sides . . . . there is only one reason for the season . . . . and glitter, gold, gifts, gab is not it . . . . celebrate the season for the right reason . . . . Jesus Christ came and was born to die for our sins so we can have eternal life . . . . need there be anything else added to this joyous occasion?
