Wow…It’s been way too long.

It's been way to long since I sat here and wrote. My life has changed a lot in the last month or so. I was recently promoted within my organization to a position I've been working YEARS for. I traded a 1/2 hour commute for nearly an hour. I'm no longer the "one of the best" in my role– and this has been a little hard for me, I am used to excelling and right now I am filled with a little self doubt but I KNOW MY GOD WILL DELIVER. The beauty about Jesus is he will always have my back. I will learn my position and I will excel, I have no choice but to do good…failure is not an option.

I had a nice holiday with my family, my family is my WORLD…I am getting ready for the New Year, but I don't really have normal resolutions this year…I obviously want to be healthy, get healthy, etc… but I am committing to:

  • Reading my devotional EVERYDAY
  • Putting GOD 1st
  • Not worrying
  • Staying in constant prayer, pray about everything
  • Unplug more (with my new role I am always plugged in, and in the day and age of Facebook–I am going to have to learn to say hold the phone!!!)
  • Be more present with friends and family
  • Spend more time with loved ones
  • Read at least 2 books a month (I am aiming for a book a week)
  • Learn about wine and enjoy it
  • Cook more (Like really cook)
  • Bake for others more
  • Find ways to bless others
  • Write a lot more

I'd also like to be more organized, better dressed, and tap into my creativity a little more.

Looking forward to writing again very soon!

2015 is knocking on the door….

The New Year is creeping around the corner and in an attempt to help me reach my goals and maybe inspire a few people along the way I am going to start a blog….

So a little about me… I recently married my best friend, I’m in my very late 20’s, my family is everything to me, I am a full time banker, my husband and I have two dogs and they are our children. I love to craft, write, bake, and cook. There are so many things I yearn to accomplish in life. I’ve struggled with my weight pretty much my whole life. My cup is always 1/2 full, God is very important to me–however at times I am guilty of trying to steer the car when I should just be throwing my hands up and letting Jesus take the wheel. I love country music, and well I guess the rest you’ll learn along our journey together.

In the New Year I’d like to:
-become a better Christian
-have Christmas in my heart all year long
-spend more with time my family, which includes my husband and pooches
-become more frugal, and focus on savings and pay down debt
-grow my craft business
-get healthy once and for all
-focus on my career and go the distance
-no longer allow myself to be the victim of bullying

With that being said my thought for the day is: Sometimes the people with the least are the most generous, and they don’t count their wealth in riches or material things but in the joy they bring to others.

Happy New Years Eve friends see you next year 😉

Warm Wishes,

Jackie
