Happy New Year everyone! I just wanted to start the new year off with a mission statement. Go a little "Jerry Maguire" on you!
*I have no resolutions this year, nope, not one. But I do want to say that I will live each and every day to its fullest like I have been. I will stretch myself to the limits when it comes to my family and I will bend as much as possible when it comes to my friends. I will keep my eyes on the prize (a degree) and not count the days it takes me to get there (who are we kidding, years it takes me). If I find myself spending more time with neighbors, friends or strangers than I spend with my own family, I will step back and say, "slow down Julie, your family needs you". I will start saying no when I get invited to or expected to throw a party that I truly have no time for and start saying yes when my children beg me to play candy land or watch a movie. I will not judge but try to lead by example in my marriage so I can show my daughter how a strong Christian wife acts and show my son how to treat that wife!
*I do promise to do the following in 2011
1.Get right with God
2.Get right with myself
3.Have Sunday dinners every Sunday with my family of four whether its at our table or a restaurants table. Set the standards HIGH for the future members of this family!
4.and invite my friends and family to those Sunday dinners!
5.Have date night once a month out of this house and once a week in the house (I promise you can have date night once the kids are in bed or tucked away with a new movie)
I posted all of the above last year and loved it so much I wanted to post again. I am proud to say I have accomplished about 75% of the things I set out to do and I plan on kicking it up a notch in 2011.
This is Me, Then.
