Wants and Wishes

Last year at this time, I was larger and less happy than I am this year.  2012 was a year of hard work, a year of many questions and a few answers, and a year of change.  I found motivation and courage to confront some things in my life that were not the way I wanted them to be.  I also found plenty more things to work on.
So, with the dawn of 2013, I thought I'd tell you my wants and wishes for the new year.  Mostly I want to rid myself, my space, and my life of some clutter.  Not all of it, mind you, cause that's kind of who I am.  But there are things hanging around that need to go.  I want to surround myself with only the people and things that bring joy, positivity, and support.  I want to be only joy, positivity and support for others.  I want to forgive my own shortcomings and embrace each and every part of my child and what it means to be her mother.
If I can lose a few more pounds along the way, awesome.  If I can crochet some new things and find a way to list more inventory on a daily basis, right on.  But when I look back at 2013 next New Year's Eve, I want to be able to say that I made good and hard choices.  That I was strong and wise.  That my work and my existence was a source of love and inspiration and comfort for others.  That I looked self-doubt and weakness in the eye and winked.
So, now you.  Please share...What are your hopes and dreams for the coming year?

You go our Jennie!! :D

I totally agree with your very proud Mum. You are one awesome lady :)

I'd just like to be happy, healthy (including losing a couple of stone!) and find some sort of peace in my life.

Take care dear Jennie.
Happy new Year to you and yours my lovely.

Touched by your honest post. Surprised too by your words of "self doubt" and "weakness.". You just NEVER come across as a woman who possesses those feelings. Your posts and comments are always so warm, lighthearted, and inspiring--with an aura of confidence.

By admitting and facing your flaws head on, you are already more confident than you think.
