My New Year's Resolution... 2012

This is a few days late, I know. However... I do want to share what I have decided I will do in the next year.

I plan on being more grateful for what I have, and less focused on what I don't have. I resolve to see the big picture in life, and not dwell on the hardships that can be overcome.

It won't be easy... it is easy to fall into the "woe is me; I have it bad" trench. 

The truth is, my family is very blessed. VERY blessed. We don't always have everything available at our every need...but somehow, everything always works out. 

Sometimes it is very hard to get up in the morning, or stay up late into the night, and work...but I am very thankful that I not only have one, but TWO fantastic jobs. I am lucky.

Sometimes I get overwhelmed with my children, and I would love a quiet moment to myself.... but I am incredibly blessed to have each and every one of them in my life.

I may find our finances lacking, but something always works out... a generous person gives us a gift, I get extra hours in at work, or I am able to do some paid writing. I am grateful for generosity and opportunity.

In the grand scheme of things, most of my hardships are pretty small compared to that which so many people suffer in the world.

I can do this... I can take control of my happiness, take control of my reactions.

What is your 2012 resolution?
