As 2015 comes to a close, all I can think about are my memories, heartaches, lessons learned and my happiest moments. I also began to think of how 2016 is fastly approaching, and how I am excited about all that is to come. I will no longer end the year with resolutions for the coming year. However, I will set goals that are reachable and that I will put into action for the new year.
I am glad to say that I’ve ended the year blogging, more than I have in the beginning of the year. I realize that writing has always been a part of me and when I’m not writing there is something that is missing in my life. I do remember that in my previous post, I stated that I would add a list of things that you all could use to create memories with your own children and families for the holiday and of course life got in the way. However, I didn’t really forget to post it, I just decided to delay it. I decided on that, because I wanted to revamp the list in order to create memorable activities that could be done throughout the year leading up to the holiday. I have not had the opportunity to do that, but I am working on it.
There was alot that occurred in my life this year, but I’m proud to say, I’m a trooper. As this year has been a roller coaster for me, but I stayed on, rode it out and smiled every bit of the way. There was a peace that surrounded me and I knew, no one but God could do that, Glorayy!! Then to know this year is wrapping up to be way better than the years past, is nothing but a blessing. I have many things lined up for 2016,and God willing I plan to see every one of them through.
Also, I have plans to kick it with my usher family New years eve. This is by far, the best group hands down and Lord knows I love them to pieces. What are your plans for New years eve and the new year?
My tree at work
My favorite holiday after Thanksgiving, is Christmas. I love everything about it; the decorating and decorations, the beautiful array of lights, the holiday movies, the food, family, giving, the meaning behind the season, I mean everything.
There are so many things that I love about Christmas, but the one thing I love most is that we as Christians celebrate the birth of Christ. Those of other religions celebrate the season, as they believe. It is altogether a season to be jolly and share with others. I utilize this time as a sharing of love, hope, peace, and goodwill towards others. I love to see people happy and joyous, not just at Christmas, but year round. This is also a season I have begun to implement within my family, the creation of more memories. I created a list of fun, memorable crafts/activities that we will do from now up until Christmas and hopefully throughout the winter. I will share our list in the next few days and maybe you and yours can utilize this list too.
Also, I am apart of the office cubicle decorating contest. I decided to go with the Candy Cane Lane theme. Although I have yet to complete my decorations, I am almost done. I also have to clean up the look a tad bit more, but I know I will pull it off by Friday. We’ve also finished decorating the tree at home. It comes out so beautiful, year after year.
This joyous season is upon us. Share the love, give a smile and let’s move into the new year anew, with bigger and brighter hopes for a better future. Tis the Season!!
What are you doing this Christmas holiday?
You know the feeling you get when you accidently leave your phone at home, and you feel like there is something missing in your life all day until you lay eyes on your phone or can feel the texture of it in the palm of your hand. Well, that is the feeling that I have had since I haven’t blogged in a couple of forevers. I do intend this time to stop delaying the inevitable and revisit my passion and love for writing on a constant basis, yet again. I’ve constantly put on hold a dream and goal of mine, to become a published author. I’ve given every aspect of my life, the license to put my dreams on the back burner.
Well today, I give my dreams permission to viciously press forward with a burning desire to reach my goals and live in my moment. For everyone that reads this, I petition you give your dreams and goals the authority to press forward when you fall short, when you began to question and doubt yourself, and when you are in the midst of your break through. Allow your inner spirit, strength and courage to fight with a burning desire to accomplish your dreams and mark off that next goal. Always remember, “dreams do not have an expiration date”!
