Trusting the Crock Pot

Everyone has resolutions for the New Year: eat better, be early for work, exercise, the list is really endless. Things we can do better in the new year - it's almost like people think "GREAT! I get a second chance".  But the crazy little thing with life is that the year before isn't just erased.  Basically it's the starting point - the past is our guide to improve on our life and really it's a beautiful thing.

I remember saying "2013 will be my year"  - I turned 30 at the end of 2012, I just knew that it would be the most fantastic year ever.  It wasn't bad, ha, I mean I didn't have any broken bones last year, which is always a plus.  I spent a lot of time with my friends, traveled some - California, a few little trips to Nashville, & then twice to Colorado.  I didn't sit at home, I had dates, met a lot of great people in that process, and some, well, that were not, :).  Found a new hobby in hiking - who knew!  It was a great year for fun - I'll give it that.

With that said, I don't want to erase 2013 - I just want to make myself better in 2014.  I think that 2013 was a learning year - I know what I want in life and what I don't.  For one, I want MORE laughing, more nonsense.  Life is way to short not to have those silly moments, like the moments where you drop the pie getting it out of the stove and have a mess larger than life, but you laugh, roll in the floor, clean it up, and do a little making out with the hottie you made it for in the process.

I want more being comfortable in my own skin - if I think something is funny, I want to laugh.  If I'm upset, I don't want to be afraid to let it be known.  Even if it stems from something as silly as Facebook.  But then at the same time, I don't want to worry about Facebook or if I am expecting too much.  I just don't want to question everything.

I think the thing I want most out of 2014 - that I know that I can't control, is that I want to be someone's favorite "human".  I want them to adore me, appreciate me, and do everything that they can to make me feel loved, or hot - even with a few extra pounds.

Then for the rest of my resolutions for the year - things I can change: 1.) Finish the darn Pinterest crafts I start 2.) Trust the CrockPot  AND 3.) Feed the rabbit outside my door EVEN MORE because it annoys my neighbors.

Happy 2014 Friends!  Tell me your resolutions!

  1. I'm with you on Pinterest sister. I got an idea in my mind on Friday night. Bought some stuff for it on Saturday. That's the extent of that.
