It’s (almost) 2014!

Bring on everyone’s favorite line, “2014 is going to be the best year!”


While I enjoy people’s enthusiasm and optimism for the next 365 days, I can guarantee that in less than 24 hours the complaining and every day rituals will set in and we will soon forget our hope for 2014 to be the “best year.”

My advice:¬†How about just trying to make today “the best day”. Add that up over 365 days, then maybe we will find that 2014 really was the best year (because of a positive attitude and not because of life’s circumstances.)

Give thanks. Seriously. It makes a difference in a world where it’s so easy to complain. Will you join me in 2014 in giving thanks, even in the midst of heartache and self-pity?

On a side note, I’m pretty pumped for 2014! I’m bringing a baby into this world in 2014…say whaaaat?! In the next couple of weeks (let’s hope and pray) Matt and I will welcome this little babe into this world and we are excited and it definitely feels like I’m in a dream. Too surreal and too unbelievable to put into words.

2014, bring it on (baby and all)!
