New Year, New Me

2008 is HERE!!! I decided I needed a little change last week, so what do I do?? Color my hair, of course!! I decided to go dark again! My hair was this color this time last year...but it was also light brown, a little blonde, red, and dark brown so black was the next best choice!! I'm asked all the time why I change the color of my hair and I really don't know why. It's one of the few things in my life I have complete control over...Well, I say I have complete control but more and more a few gray hairs have snuck up on me! Let's just hope I don't get that from my dad's side of the family; I think all of my aunts and uncles, even my grandmother, was completely gray by the time they were 30! Clariol will be rich before I let those little suckers be seen on me! So with a new style, I thought it would be good to make a list of my resolutions for 2008. Here's a few I will share, but there are a few other personal resolutions I will be working on along with these:
  1. Grow spiritually, read my Bible more, and start each day with a morning devotion
  2. Be more organized (I started out today at work! Still need to start at home)
  3. Wake up earlier...be 10-15 minutes early for everything (With 4 kids, this will be hard, but if I start earlier in the day, hopefully I can be on time at least!)
  4. Stay away from fast food and cook more meals for the family
  5. Lose 10-15 lbs. (ties in with #3 and I'm still trying to get all the baby weight off 18 months later!)
  6. Sew more (Once again, with 4 kids, finding time will be hard, but I really want to use this talent I have been given!)
  7. Let my hair grow out and donate it to Locks of Love (I am really hoping to accomplish this, but my hair is short so I don't know!) I will be donating in honor of this precious angel.

I will also be starting the book "The Purpose Driven Life" by Rick Warren. Well, restarting I guess you could say. I have attempted to start this book 3 times, but I plan on getting through it this time. Lately I have really been asking myself so many questions...Why am I here, What is God's purpose for my life, and What do I need to do to live my life the way He wants me to? I want to look back on this year on January 2, 2009 and know that I have come so far and I am living the life God planned for me. So here's to the New Year and the New Me!!
