Good morning love bugs!
I hope you all had a wonderful evening last night! After yesterday’s post, it seemed as though quite a few of you were planning on spending New Years Eve much like me…
Low key, relaxed, and chill is very much my style.
My evening started out with a delicious salmon dinner. I made myself a lovely mixed greens and sweet potato salad and then topped it off with one of my favourite fishies of the sea.
It was delicious and just what I needed. A warm salad. I’ve been having a lot of those lately and think of my two “sisters” all of the time <3
After dinner, my boyfriend and I made a quick run to Superstore for some New Years Eve goodies, I walked this precious gem around my neighbourhood,
unclogged my disgustingly clogged up kitchen sink (note: don’t try to flush dry pomelo flesh down your kitchen sink), and watched all of season 3 of The Big Bang Theory.
Ten minutes to midnight, we switched from Big Bang to Dick Clark’s New Years Eve Countdown and watched the ball drop. I’m happy to say I stayed up until midnight. I’m not going to lie, though – it was a struggle and I
definitely may have fell asleep a few times before the clock struck 12, but I’m not quite sure
I’m really happy with how I spent my New Years. Very Meg-style, if you will, and that is something I am going to own this year – being proud of me - my “Meg-style”.
What I mean by this is I am going to continue doing what I have been doing for the past couple of months or so and focusing on me and not others. That sounds incredibly selfish, but let me explain…
When I focus more on myself, I am more capable of doing good things, the right things, for me.
When I put more focus on others, constantly observe what others are doing, what works for them, etc. my mind becomes busy and a mess.
Comparison will not be a part of my life in the year of 2013, so starting today…
I am accepting myself for who I am.
I am going to recognize my uniqueness and take advantage of all of those characteristics that make me the individual God created me to be.
Along this journey of focusing on myself and abandoning the awful comparison trap that so many of us can find ourselves in from time to time, I will also put all of my trust in God.
Like a very good friend of mine said today in her post, all we have to do is put our trust in God. We all know this is easier said than done, but I find when I show God my trust and truly believe that he is guiding me along the right path, life is so much better.
Less worries, less stress.
So, in 2013 I know God will lead me in the right direction because he has amazing plans for me.
He has a plan for us all and we just need to trust him.
Have a wonderful first day of 2013 and I’ll see ya tomorrow!
