Annual Blessing

I woke up this morning full of excitement! The thought of moving into a new year of my life was very refreshing. It feels like a new beginning. It's an opportunity for me to leave the mistakes and heartaches of the past behind me. I can create my smiles of tomorrow. I realized this morning that I am in control of my destiny. God loves me and has never taken his hand off of me. As long as I submit to Him, my future will remain bright.

I hate to admit it but I was a bit anxious as well. My husband told me that today was my day to do whatever I wanted. Sadly enough, I couldn't think of anything that I wanted to do today. I am so used to finding excitement in the things I do with and for others that I have lost some of my own independence. I vow to regain control of me and to find those things this year.

As I begin this new year of life, I thank you for taking this journey with me. Together, we will find the balance we need to remain centered in all things.

If you're like me, you sometimes find your escape in movies and television series. Instead of spending time in your own realities, you spend time watching scripted realities. It's an opportunity to disengage ourselves from the characters on the screen. It's a way to passively accept or criticize the s
