Let me clarify that I know that I have learned much and grown a ton from the trials that I have faced. Many of them have become blessings in my life. I am not bitter about them, though I sometimes wish I could have a break. They have made me stronger.
I will not say what I have in the past. I know that 2015 will be full of blessings and trials. Good times and hard times.
I have been asked a few times what my New Year's Resolutions will be. I usually respond that I am not a fan and don't set them. It seems every time I do, I am unable to accomplish that goal because something stops it or makes it impossible for me to reach the goal.
However, when I woke up this morning, a quote came to mind and I have decided that it will be my motto and resolution of 2015.
Got this quote picture from a Yahoo image search.
What a concept! Instead of hoping the year will be better, I can work on being better myself, no matter what this year brings, good or bad.
I have this quote up in my room and will be putting it up at work. It is completely possible to reach this goal, no matter what comes about. I can be a better person, a better friend, a better sister, a better daughter, a better citizen, a better me, a better neighbor, and more. The only thing that can impede this from happening is my pride and lack of effort. For the year of 2015, I will try a little harder to be a little better. I will record the progress (or try to record the progress) throughout the year, in my journal, so by the end of the year, I will have ways to see improvements (hopefully).
I want to wish you all a Happy New Year. May we all be a little better in 2015. :)
