Two Zero One Zero

"Now we can write Two Zero One Zero Mom!"

If, years ago, you would have told me that I would have a daughter (let alone TWO daughters) in the year 2010 I wouldn't have believed you. Remember when 2000 seemed unreal?? Wasn't that just yesturday?

I am a goal-setter, as you might know. I think to rethink, revamp, and re-do all the time. Sometimes to improve things and other times just to mix things up. But, in our current situation, there is really nothing tangible (besides myself - and we won't go there) that I can re-do. So I am taking this year's resolutions to matters of the heart. I am resolving to be more giving, to show more love, to think less about me and more about others.

I want to go out of my way to give too. You know the kind were it feels a little uncomfortable at first but then you realize it was worth it.

I want to sign up for something without being asked. Put it on my calendar - make time. I am challenging myself to one thing a month.

I want to use my time the right way before all my time uses me.

Because I am already 32
Because life is going way too fast
Because sometimes I watch it fly by with out joining in
Because I only get one chance.

Amen to this mama! I am right there with you! Mason will be seven in June and I just look and him and think "where did the last 7 years go?" looking into the future and putting myself on a 2 year time table for something seems so long to go but at the same time 2 years "ago" seems like the blink of an eye. 2010 is a great time to focus on MAKING memories instead of wishing we had on every level!
