a new year.
my goodness. when did this happen and where was i?
i always love the new year.
a new, fresh start for everything and everyone.
2010 brought many wonderful things to our family:
(which has eaten away over 25K in debt in one year thank you very much. anyone who says moving home during a deployment makes you a weak military wife doesn't know jack crap about saving money and being responsible. ahem.)
(now 12 years thanks to yesterday, woot woot!)
(that i miss sooooo much and can't wait until my brain starts working again so i can start hosting these with my favorite people again.)
(who i miss so much. boo.)
...just to name a few.
there were many lasts that year.
some good. some upsetting. some exciting.
i wanted to write this post to tell a handful of people that i am so grateful for the friendship they have offered me this year. some of these people i am no longer friends with. it makes me sad, especially since i have a lot of good memories with them,
another good friend brought to my attention that friends weed themselves out. the good ones always stay, no matter what. the others, fall to the wayside. not because they were necessarily "bad" friends, just because it wasn't meant to be.
and i'm thankful for the opportunities those temporary friendships gave me.
the fun times.
i don't regret any single minute of it.
those friendships are the ones
that teach me valuable lessons about myself.
they help me to grow and learn.
and most importantly,
so thank you.
you know who you are.
and i'm thankful for you.
thank you for making me a better person.
a promise to myself
(because i hate new years resolutions)
i promise, to be nothing but positive in 2011.
positive about my situation.
(whatever it may be)
positive about my future.
positive about things that try to be NOT so positive.
(because those sneaky rats are always out there)
life is short,
and i don't have time to waste on negativity.
happy new year friends.
(with sparkling grape juice of course)
some of my super rad comrades are also posting about positivity this year. if you wanna be a part of this positive force of moving forward and not looking back at blah diddly blah, then link up so we can all read and feel the vibes of love floating all around us. because let's be honest, dwelling on crap only makes you feel like crap. and probably smell like crap too.
so stop it. now.
