Happy New Year

Happy new year!! It has been a while since my last blog, so I decided to start fresh. Nothing says fresh like the start of a new year! Lets start off with a little bit about me, I am a wife, mother, and student, I am also a friend, sister, and daughter. My life is far from perfect, as you all know; but I am hoping 2014 will bring positive changes. I am hoping to part ways with the negativity and enjoy those that love me.

Often we get complacent with where we are in life, I know I do. We should continue to challenge ourselves, continue to strive to be better. My goals this year are simple: I plan to work on bettering myself because I can be mean, bitchy, cranky, and I have a huge potty mouth. I plan on trying to be a better wife and mother. I hope I can be a better student, because my passion is helping others. It sounds naive, but I believe I was put on this earth to help others.

My life has been filled with struggles, but who hasn't struggled? It doesn't matter how many times you fall, what matters is picking yourself back up and living to fight another day.

A little more about me, I chose the social work profession because I love to help others. I am starting my second semester of the program, and I love it. I have two more full semesters (including this one) and an internship, then I can graduate. I am excited, yet scared. I have the GRE in March and I am nervous about it. I need to get into a decent graduate school so I can do what I want to do in this field, and that is to work with our nation's wounded warriors and their families.

My husband and I have been married for almost 9 years, and life has not always been easy for us, but I hope this year brings positive outcomes. Our children are still young, 8 and 5. They are my inspiration, they keep me going on the days I feel like giving up.

I have learned a lot this year, mostly that family isn't always connected by blood. Family are those that stand by you, no matter what....

This blog is mostly for me to journal and hold myself accountable for my decisions. 2013 was filled with so much craziness, 2014 HAS to be better. So, stick with me on this journey I call life...and lets see where it takes us.

Be blessed

Here are a few songs to get the year started off right :)
