Today, I woke up with a renewed mind and attitude. The sun was shining, the weather was unseasonably warm, and I felt content and loved. For the past couple of weeks, I've been distracted with issues and problems but this weekend, I put things into perspective. I decided to be happy. It's a choice. I decided not to let issues, unexpected unpleasantries, and things I deem unfair to rattle my cage. In life, there will always be something. Something unpleasant will always come up but hey, I don't complain when life is great, do I? Life can certainly be great and guess what? Things can be up or down but I want to enjoy the limited time on this earth as much as possible. So, I cried my last tear yesterday. Not really but no matter what comes my way, I know that I am loved and God is constantly looking out for me. With that being said, whom shall I fear? Nothing nor anyone! Today, choose to be happy with me! Life won't be easy but we don't have to be miserable. XOXO

I have a New Attitude! *singing* It's a new year and I've truly approached the new year and life as a whole with a brand new attitude. I don't sweat the small stuff, I am making time for a social life, and with each day, I become better at knowing when to let go, and identifying what is important. Material things are nice but people and connections are what is most important. Keeping this in mind, I am trying to re-connect with those I once was "too busy" for and trying to re-build bridges with co-workers that were severed. For the past month, I've been somewhat of a social butterfly. I even call myself Social Sally but I am LIVING, LAUGHING, and LOVING. 2012 has been wonderful to me and it will be the same for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A new year, a new beginning *exhale*. The year 2011, I must say was wonderful. As I look back, I learned so much, gained so much insight, created new memories, re-connected with loved ones, and met some wonderful people. Don't get me wrong. Not every day was rosy in 2011 but I certainly had more good days than not-so-good days. What more can a girl ask for? I have my health, a wonderful family, and a great support system. I no longer spend all of my time working. There was a time I was strictly going from job to job with hardly any time to think. Not anymore!That was a decision I made in 2011 and I must say it was one of the best decisions I've made in my lifetime.Instead of working all of the time, I maintained bonds and connections with my family and friends by making more time for them. Life is for the living and are we really living if we aren't being a blessing to others, enriching the lives of others, and having the time of our lives? My answer is NO! As for 2012, I will take all of the lessons and blessings from 2011 and continue to blossom into the beautiful, strong, supportive person that I am becoming. I don't have any resolutions. All I can say is that I promise to Seize the Day and to continue to live, laugh, and love. Isn't life grand? 2012 will be better than 2011. With that being said, I expect nothing short of a joyful, prosperous, successful, and wonderful year. I wish you the same!
