In 2010, I gained a nephew, Clayton Robert Cockrell on December 1st.
I lost some of my organizational skills somewhere late in the year.
I stopped letting other people's negativity affect me, even though it took me half the year to do so!
I started getting in touch with my crafty/creative side.
I was hugely satisfied by my ability to re-create things I see online and in magazines, much cheaper than I could buy them.
I am so embarrassed that I let a few people have such a negative impact on my life and on my health.
Once again, my mouth said yes to too many things my mind really wanted to say no to.
Once again, I am ending the year stronger than I started it.
The biggest physical difference between me last December and this December is
about 15 pounds.
The biggest psychological difference between me last December and this December is I have to work at being optimistic, instead of it just coming naturally.
I loved how much closer my husband and I became this year.
Why did I spend even two minutes letting someone's selfishness hurt me?
I should have spent more time spending quality time with my husband.
I regret not leaving work on time so that I could spend more time with my husband, more often.
I will never regret spending time with my friends and family.
I worried way too much about things (and people) that I cannot change.
I didn’t send out cards to my friends nearly as often as I should have.
Losing two pregnancies nearly drove me crazy.
The most relaxing place I went was just our bedroom, snuggled up next to my husband.
Why did I not unpack and set up the house when we first moved in?
The best thing I did for someone else was getting over my negative feelings and make a special event really special for her.
The best thing I did for myself was let people help me, instead of trying to do everything on my own.
The best thing someone did for me was being the rock I needed him to be.
The one thing I’d like to do again, but do it better, is be a good wife.
Happy New Year!
