On New Year’s Eve we took the kids to see The Hobbit (I thought it was snoozy, FYI. *yawn* My family, of course, disagreed) and afterwards we went to dinner.
I had one of those moments during dinner where I was particularly thankful for my life. Nothing special happened. Nothing extraordinary. But we were together. Having fun. Living.
I said to my husband, “If I never have anything more than what I have today, I’ll be happy.”
And I really mean it.
Every year I get on the bandwagon with my goals. And contrary to most people’s New Year's resolutions, I follow mine. Heh. *shrug* I’m one of those goal oriented people who really like to make lists and check them off. If it’s not on “my list” it most likely won’t happen.
I happen to think I’m pretty good at enjoying the moment too, though. If anything, Steven has taught me this. And I’d like to think I’ve helped him with his goal making (though, really doubt it).
I won’t change. I’m still who I am. I’m going to keep pushing myself.
It’s just after the final few months of 2012 and the punches that came with it, I’m so grateful just to be here. It’s okay if I never have anything more than right now. Because right now is pretty darn good.
