What I heard was real people, expressing real desires to be better. Better Christians, more productive people, healthier / happier people.
What I want for 2012 and for the rest of my life
is to remember what's important!
My top 10 "Resolutions"
#1 Make sure Bailey gets everything she needs medically. It's hard for me to get excited about the "No more chemo party" coming up in March. Why? Because Bailey still has a brain tumor that is TWICE the size it was when we began chemo. So, stopping chemo has me feeling extremely stressed.
I want to make sure we take the right steps, in making sure she is around to see 2013!
#2 I did state that I would like to lose weight....But I vow to not focus or get so swept up in this idea, that I let the number on the scale affect my mood. I want to be healthier....And THIS is what I will focus on! This includes Exercise...Even when the tumor in my leg causes pain.
#3 Speaking of the tumor...I NEED to figure out what treatments are available. Surgery? Amputation? Whatever needs to happen...NEEDS to happen in 2012!
#4 Be a more patient person. Anyone who KNOWS me, knows that I have issues with this. This includes friends and family. If something doesn't happen on MY time schedule, I will try to let it go. :)
#5 Invite friends over to our home.... I would LOVE to host Life Group, or just a social gathering. Goal for 2012, is to invite a few families over for dinner/games/movies--whatever. :)
#6 FILL my calendar with speaking events, interviews, or talk shows covering Neurofibromatosis. I already have a few set up for this year, but I want MORE!! Getting myself "out there" as a spokesperson for NF would be a dream come true!
#7 Blog more. I started this blog over 3 yrs ago and it began VERY strong. I'd like to get back to that. This includes Guest Bloggers, Interviews, Personal stories, and general everyday life.
#8 De-Clutter my house! I swear, I am cleaning up the same messes every single day...We have WAYYY too much stuff. Maybe have a Yard Sale!
#9 Support my husband. I do this already, but I could be better. Have faith in him and trust him more...He and I have been through so much in our marriage...And I need to believe that God will see us through. He is my best friend and I need to block out all the negative people who try to convince me that holding onto him isn't what I should be doing.
#10 Last but not least...In 2012, I'd like to get out a second book. I've been thinking a lot about a squeal or just a book about general Thriving. My life isn't all about Neurofibromatosis...It's about Thriving, no matter what I am facing...
