2014: Restore, Rejuvenate, Revitalize

2013 has ended and left a trail of heartache, disappointments, and personal issues behind. It simply wasn't a good year for me.

Now, it is time to move forward with my 3 little words for this year: Restore, Rejuvenate, Revitalize. No Resolutions! Just promises to take things one day at a time; for that's all we're promised anyways. No more worrying about tomorrow and what troubles it may bring.

You may have noticed that I slowly dropped off the face of blogging for about three months. I was so burned out trying to keep up with everything in my life, taking care of my Mom, trying to live up to Design Team commitments and failing miserably, and my health just kept getting worse. Just when I thought things couldn't get any worse...I was forced into a full-time position at my current job. That was the final straw for me. I shut down my challenge blog that my team and I had worked so hard to build because I knew that I could no longer be there for them in the capacity that they needed. It was painful and heart-breaking but I now know more than ever it was the right thing to do.

My stress levels increased with the full-time position and with that came increased health issues especially with fibromyalgia. Pain, anxiety and depression owned me! I gave up on everything I enjoyed in life because, I no longer was able to find joy in it.

That was 2013 and it is gone and behind me.

2014 is here and it's time to...

Restore: my health physically and emotionally

Rejuvenate: my interests and love for paper-crafting while only creating what I love and enjoy

Revitalize: my Faith in God, spend more time in the Word and listening to sermons and walking in Faith; sharing my faith through blogging

May God Bless You All in 2014...

  1. Yes, it's gone and a new journey is going to begin. Sometimes we have to let go of things we think we want so He can work His plan through us. Big hug to you my friend. :)

  3. I truly wish a better year for you. I have Fibromyalgia. It is a very difficult disease. I have learned that I have to manage it and think of me first otherwise I can't be there for anyone else in any kind of way. I have been a care giver too and know how demanding it can be. God bless you as you care for your Mom.
