Happy Monday!!

Ok.. well maybe it's not  happy for you, but I'm going to make the best of it. I'm going to get motivated to start cleaning out this house again, because it's getting to be that time where my life is at a pivotal moment. Sooo out with the old in with the new. Life has a funny way of working itself out when you have no idea what to do. I'm striving for more and slowly but surely I will get there. Sometimes my motivation seems to be lacking, or maybe its just my intense procrastination and fear of ever taking a step forward because I can't see what is laying ahead. This however has got to change and it all starts inside, right? 

Tomorrow will be my 23rd birthday and I am greatly anticipating where my life shall go over the next year, and I invite you all on my journey!

What does everyone have planned for this upcoming year?

Almost the new year!

Alrighty.. It's been FOREVER! However, I believe since it's almost the New Year of 2012, that maybe it's time for a new vision. A new outlook that includes my dreams, fears, ups & the downs. So, on that note, let's begin fresh.

Maybe things are suppose to change and we are suppose to change with them. Change seems to be the only perpetual thing that I have found. I'm resuming my classes online and going through many things in my marriage, as well as changing a lot of things in myself. I'm still in love with cooking and doing things creatively. My next quest is to find a way to start making a substantial income from home, while still being able to take care of my children. Keagan is officially four years old, and my daughter is officially one! It's crazy to me how many things keep going yet we let ourselves get stuck in ruts feeling sorry for ourselves. I'm done with all of the sorry feelings, and words of empty apologies. It's time for some fresh air in the world and I am about to bring it. I'm more than happy to say that this next year will be full of my experiences on everything in my life, because I am about to let you all in on the real me, as I am discovering it. So let it start!

Quote of day:
All men should strive
to learn before they die
what they are running from, and to, and why.
