Be Happy

2014 Mission Statement:  Life happens, life is short, BE HAPPY, and keep moving forward!
(You'll see me using the hash tags #behappy and #keepmovingforward quite often
in order to keep this mission at the forefront of my mind throughout the year.)

I set some pretty great aspirations for 2013 but as usual I didn't keep them on my mind very long.  This year I just want to do things that make me happy and I've got a feeling that'll be fairly easy!

I want to...

  • Be happy with the growth of my spirit and my mind.
  • Be happy with my appearance.
  • Be happy with my physique.
  • Be happy with the way I spend my time.
  • Be happy with the life I've been given!
Five things!  I always try to limit myself to no more than that.  I feel really good about this year for some reason and I look forward to learning a lot about myself and doing things to improve the life I lead.  

When I first had the thought to approach my year this way, thinking only about myself (no resolutions about being a better wife, mother, worker, homemaker, etc.), I thought it was quite selfish and felt that I couldn't possibly set such aspirations.  But deep down I know that taking the time to nurture myself will only put me in a better position to nurture others! Am I right?!?  You bet I am :)!!!

Be happy,
