Happy New Year!

I hope everyone is safe and warm on this first day of 2011! Here it is raining (pouring actually). I planned to stay in my pj's all day anyway so that just makes it perfect. My day today? It will consist of making cards and watching chick flicks. I have the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice, 13 Going on 30, Must Love Dogs (never seen this one), and an indie film with the stars of My Big Fat Greek Wedding called I Hate Valentine's Day. Looked funny and since I am a fan of MBFGW I decided to give it a shot (it was only 2.95 at the used bookstore). I might throw in a viewing of You've Got Mail and French Kiss also.

I haven't been around much lately- I had a rough ending to 2010- just a lot of personal stuff going on and right now I'm not sure where 2011 is going to take me- however, I know that with God's help I will get through it and will come out stronger on the other side. With that said- my one word for 2011 is:

FOCUS

Part of the personal stuff was that I lost my focus- I shifted my eyes off that which really mattered in my life and especially my relationship with Christ. I didn't lose it- just allowed the subtle shift that didn't make it #1. For me-I have to keep Him #1. So- that's the first part of my focus- the spiritual focus.

The second part of my focus is my physical focus. I was going to bed later and later as the days went by. For my physical well-being I am going to HAVE to go to bed at a decent time and even more importantly- make time for me- in exercising. I have to make it a priority. I have a goal for the end of January- I want to hit it- to do so means I will need a shift in my priorities. That also means I need to control my diet. As of today- January 1- I have no soda in my house- my goal is to not drink any sodas in the month of January. I love me some Diet Dew so this will be a hard one for me- but something has to give. Water, water, water....

The third part of my focus is my relational focus. This is part of the personal stuff that poked it's nasty head into the end of my 2010. 6 years ago I had a relationship end and it was not a pretty ending- turned out to be a good thing but it was rough going for a while. I put a wall up to keep people (okay men) out of my life. I let down that guard these past few months and we'll just say that I was reminded of why I had it up in the first place. I am going to work on making my relationships Christ-centered and they need to be both a give and take. If I am giving, giving, giving then I know that relationship is going to burn me out. I am going to work on the balance in relationships and work on trusting...

Okay-if you have stuck with this long post- I greatly appreciate you! I would love to hear your "one word" or some of your goals for 2011.
