Color Me Awesome

I bought this 365 Days of Coloring book thingy supposedly for Madi but I realized that I can’t control her of how many pages to color in a day and I didn’t want to mess-up the purpose of the book so I thought I’d just use it for myself. Since it’s the 5th of January now, I did five pages. I find it sort of therapeutic... I color, think of different strokes, add some creativity to it and think nothing except the fun of doing it. It relaxed my mind. I think it’s a good idea to do this every night after a tiring day. 

Another interesting thing is that I have never touched crayons in a very long time and I noticed that there are so many new colors now. There is a color that’s called “awesome” and I love it. It’s bright and brightness just gives me a positive energy.

New Year

There’s been hardships last year but I feel that there is more to be thankful for than anything else. Aside from that, it is not really healthy to be counting the negative stuff. No matter how bad the situation might have been, just being alive surpasses all the pain. That is the number one thing I am thankful for- being alive and healthy. Thankful for everyone’s (my family and friends) presence in this world.

Second that I am thankful for is that in spite of the bad economy, my husband is able to keep his job and truly appreciate that he is doing his best to be able to provide for the family. I don’t want to be a hypocrite- I know that there were times that I complained about not having enough and I forget the more important things in life and because of that, I will try to be a better person this year- I have to keep reminding myself that as long as we get to eat everyday and we don’t owe money from anyone, that is enough.

Third that I am thankful for is my daughter, Madi. I wish to have atleast one more child but if circumstances don’t allow it, I would honestly be happy with Madison. She is a beautiful child, healthy, and smart. She brings joy to everyone especially to me and Jon. She is just the best thing I ever had and I love her- I can’t ask for anything more.

There is really more to be thankful for if you really think about it. You should try to sit and reflect on it because it is good for your mind and soul. I wish that everyone achieve their goals for 2010, good health, peace, and love. Happy new year!
