Cool idea for 2013

I’ll be honest. Of my 30 years on earth, 2012 wasn’t my favorite. I mean, I still enjoyed it! How could I not with all my blessings? I truly am a person that can say I count them daily. I don’t ever want the Lord to think I’m ungrateful, but the total opposite, I’m thankful! (sorry I always love to get Dr. Seussy when the opportunity arises.) I’m thankful for the best friends and family on this earth (my rulebook clearly states this is true.) That’s right. Better than any others. 😉 I’m thankful for a job, that when I go in each morning I’m greeted with smiles and we begin the day with prayer. I’m thankful to have been a part of team fitbody this year even if I didn’t get to compete. I cheered on my best friends as they walked on that stage and I truly get more joy from that than competing myself. I also met new hearts that I’ll cherish forever. I’m thankful for my strength, my health, the food I eat, the clothes I wear… I think you get the point. Bottom line is, My life is too good to dwell on the bad. So no need to list the negatives of 2012. They only break my heart. I like when my heart smiles much more 🙂

So I’m here to present something cool for you to do in 2013. My friend, Hooker, found this idea (on pinterest I’m sure. Btw, I gave up on pinterest a long time ago. If you’re following me, you may wanna stop. I won’t post anything new.). So, here’s the idea. This January, You start writing down the good things that happen to you throughout the year and place the notes in a jar or box. On New Years eve 2013, open the jar or box, whatever, and read the good things that happened throughout the year. I bet in 365 days your jar will be full. Reflect on these blessings and thank God for each of them. Ask Him to bless you even more in 2014. So much more that you have to buy a bigger or 2nd container. I’m gonna do this, and a few of my bff’s are too. I already can’t wait till the end of the year to reflect on  the amazingness that happened in my life.
God bless you in 2013. May your life be filled with health, happiness, and love. 🙂

  1. Erin, you are an amazing young woman. One of my blessings is being able to have known you and to have spent some wonderful times with you. I loved you then and I love who you have become. Just remember we have to have a few storms to be able to truly be thankful for the sunshine. My prediction is a sunny 2013.
