What had happen was…..

My New Year’s Eve activities have matured a lot over the years. They’re now kept at a minimum, compared to my younger years.

Back in the day I could be found wherever there was a NYE party, wearing a crazy hat adorned with anything symbolizing the occasion – glitter, tinsel, streamers, etc. In recent years I started my countdown to the new year attending church service, which I realized gave me a positive outlook on the future and made me feel refreshed going into the new year. I also used to give attention to resolutions but I gave up on annual goals to focus on daily ones.

Last night I was home but I stayed up late….

…actually, I tried to stay up late….

…Hmm… no no, I thought about staying up late….

…well let’s just say it was a good idea.

I was tucked into bed by the time the ball dropped.

Sleep is no longer currency I swap for a night out on the town or in the big city. I need all the pillow time I can get.

You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am but rather I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for a first approach; stick around and you'll understand the power behind that statement. What I do is another story! I embrace life hoping to live my purpose as a mother, daughter, sister, confidante and friend; I laugh, cry, and support; I admire, like and love; I listen, read and write. Most importantly, I have faith and thank God for all of me. My intent is to inspire others using my gifts and "Don't Forget the Half" reminds me to cast nothing aside. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.
