Reflections 2013: My Year in Review

Hello Everyone!

I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas, and for those who don't celebrate Christmas, I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season. I wanted to write a quick update/preview post about my birthday and Christmas before I write today's post. I had a AWESOME day filled with love, laughter, and beautiful gifts! I couldn't have ask for a better day!! I will probably have my post up about Christmas/birthday later this week (after New Year's) because I haven't had time to take my pictures and organize my post yet. Don't worry it's coming very soon! Now with that being said on to my reflections of 2013... I wanted to write this before the New Year :)

I can’t believe that 2013 is coming to a close. In my opinion this year went by kind of fast! What can I say about this year? Well I thought I had a fairly decent year. I don’t have too many complaints about this year. I guess the only thing I wish had been different, are the number of times I was sick this year. My allergies and sinuses were really misbehaving…terribly!! lol I can’t help not mentioning that awful cold I had in January that lasted until mid February. Then in March I had food poisoning…that’s the last time I ate from Blimpies or ate a sub sandwich in general lol. Through it all I can smile and count my many blessings.

I think sometimes people forget how blessed we are, and tend to let negativity cloud our feelings and emotions. I know people can’t be happy 100% of the time, but I chose to remain positive and optimistic about life. I also think resilience is so important to overcome obstacles. As long as I have faith and prayer, I know I can overcome anything in life. You really can’t let life defeat you or at least you shouldn’t. I’ve learned in the past that negativity doesn’t solve anything…happy thoughts here :) I’m glad that I have supportive and loving people in my life that include my mom, my best friend from that I've known since I was 16 years old, and my other best friend I've known since college. I love these people so very much!

Last but not least, I want to reflect on my blogging. This year I also started blogging. Blogging has really made an impact in my life! I love reading blogs and sharing my posts with you all. The feedback I have received has truly been so positive and inspirational! I look forward to continuing my blogging journey in 2014 and I look forward to reading and commenting on your blogs :) As I mentioned in my Thank You post, it’s so important that we encourage and inspire each other as bloggers.

In conclusion, as each New Year begins, it’s a brand new start for endless possibilities. May you all be blessed, prosperous, and safe! I wish you all a HAPPY WONDEFUL NEW YEAR!!!

Pilar

    1. Thank you! I swear you say such kind words :) I'm glad to have met you too through blogging! I felt a genuine sincerity when I read your post about the awareness of the devastation in the Philippines. I thought it was such a nice post you wrote not just because your husband and family are from (and live) there, but you care in general. That really touched me. You have a great outlook on life and with your neurological condition you show us as peoole that we can be positive despite our circumstances and obstacles. Reading your blog is really inspiring!
