2014 has been a rough year for me and for the blog. So many tears, so many changes. It hasn’t all been bad, though. My ex and I went to Alaska, one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. I have a new job that I like. My co-workers are really good to me and I am learning so much. I have been blessed with some amazing friends, who have been incredibly supportive. My brother moved across the state to live with me; that is love! Random acts of kindness from unexpected people have also blessed my life. The little things have kept me afloat when I thought I might drown. It has renewed my faith in humanity and encouraged me to increase my own personal compassion.
I hope 2015 is a year of rebuilding and improvement. Instead of making a resolution, I am going to make a list. A whole year is a long time and I have faith I can get a lot done. Cheer and Happy New Year!
A bad habit I am going to break: Negative, pervasive worry
A new skill I’d like to learn: How to be more handy around the house.
A person I hope to be more like: My boss, DJ. She is supportive and encouraging to everyone. Her kindness to me through these hard months has been amazing.
A good deed I am going to do: Buy the meal of someone behind me in the drive through.
A place I’d like to visit: Niagara Falls
A book I’d like to read: Too hard! I have 378 books on my Goodreads “To Read” shelf. I want to read them all!
A letter I am going to write: To my great aunt, Anna. To my OH friend Tom.
A new food I’d like to try: Marmite.
I’m going to be better at: Being more emotionally intelligent. Thinking before I speak.
I can help with the Marmite. We keep it at home. Love a thin layer on buttered toast. Top this with a runny fried egg and green onion/cilantro. Kathryn’s recipe.
That sounds delicious! Maybe I can come over one night for a Marmite sandwich and a Manhattan?

I hope 2105 is a wonderful year for you and that you rise up and meet all (or most of) the goals on your list.
Thank you Allison!

Really, don’t bother with marmite. And if you can travel with your ex? Life must be pretty good!!! ps. worrying would be lovely if it actually changed the results.
Mimi, if only it were that easy. The trip was before the separation. If worrying changed the results, I would have a perfect life. I am pretty sure I have over-analyzed nearly everything.
EAT MY MARMITE!!!!! LOL
