I cannot say that I will be sad to see this year behind me. Francois and I went through a lot this year.. We worked through living 3 hours apart, I graduated nursing school, sold my first house, moved to Charleston, started a new job, etc. Life is challenging and sometimes you win and sometimes you learn... but with each hard time you learn and build.
I like to think in metaphors and so i like to think of building a house and you have to have a solid foundation first and build from there. In life you have a blue print and a vision.. i think as each year passes we build a little more.
This year I would like to make the resolutions
1. Say "I love you" more: ( maybe i will practice with unkind lady in the parking garage at work :)
2. Let the little stuff go
3. Say YES more.. it opens doors
4. Find events in Charleston and experience it while I am here!
5. For every negative I must follow with 2 positive statements
The upcoming events that Francois and I are planning this Year
