What a year! 2019 has been trivial healthwise, but still a great year. I really can’t complain about anything. I have been married for a 20 months, I self-published my first book in January, I turned 50 in March, I am learning my way around in the city of Birmingham, I’ve visited quite a few cities (states) I’ve never been to before, I’ve met some great people … 2019 doesn’t owe me anything.
At the same time, I’ve learned some things about myself that I need to change. I have been feeling lost over the last few months. My direction has been altered off the beaten path. One of the most important changes I plan to make in 2020 is distancing myself from social media. I feel as if it has became a habitual nuisance, in a sense, because I find myself focusing more on what’s going on in other people’s lives versus focusing on my own goals. Therefore, I am wasting too much time that I can never get back. Yes, I love catching up with my friends/family. But at the same time, I could spend my time more wisely doing other things.
Secondly, another change is to focus on my future goals. I have a few ideas stirring around in my head and they are all moving in different directions like a kaleidoscope. I need some balance to guide me in the direction God has for me to go. I have other changes also, but if I can take care of the main two, I know everything else will fall into place.
At one time, I used to be a little discouraged because when I got married, I moved and didn’t have any friends nor family near. As time passed, I realized that all of the things I wanted and needed (hanging out with friends and/or family), I already had in my husband.
Mark has been such a blessing to me in more ways than I can count. And I see now that having him prevents other distractions that could possibly cause confusions. He’s always been so supportive of my journey, through the good times and bad. He is the best friend I have always desired in a mate and God blessed me with him. So as I make these important changes and get the balance I need, having Mark by my side is EVERYTHING!
2020 … I am ready for you with opened arms. More importantly, I am ready for you with my husband right by my side!
Until next time … be blessed.
