We are 6 days in to the new year, and Mama Kat’s asking, what word encompasses 2010 – and what is your theme for 2011.
For me, 2010 was all about jealousy, longing and sadness. To be honest, I wasn’t a big fan of 2010. In a word, if I were to have to describe it in one word it would be frustrating. Between the miscarriage, the ever-present baby fever, family illnesses and deaths, having the brother-in-law live with us, and a whole host of other things I didn’t even blog about, this past year was definitely challenging.
But, 2011 is not to going to be that way. This year is my year. It is my year to be a better me, to learn contentment, to be healthy. 2011’s theme is Happiness. I will be happy – for others and myself. I will not allow jealousy to consume me. That is not to say, I won’t feel the occasional twinge – otherwise, I would have already failed this year – but I will not allow it to define me, or my year.
Speaking of, I’m so excited about my future niece or nephew to be born – I’m hoping for a nephew – I already have two nieces, so a cute little boy would be nice. I’m not sure I can wait the next few months to find out what it is, never mind wait for it to be born!
