New Year = New Resolutions

Welcome New Year!
A few days into the New Year and I thought I should probably write down what I have been planning for my New Year's resolutions. 

Although the list is pretty short, it never hurts to have it written somewhere so that you keep on task when life attempts to derail you.  And when you live the highs and the lows of type 1 diabetes, that can happen quite often.

So without further ado, here is my list:

New Year's Resolutions of 2014

1.)  Have Fun!

2.)  Have Fun!

3.)  Have Fun!

4.)  Repeat numbers 1, 2, and 3 in no particular order.

And that my friends, really is the short and sweet of my list. 

Now if that seems odd, I am going to direct you back to the review of 2013 where I learned a bit about the pearls of the oyster.  That wisdom has brought me to where I am right now.  I can't let another year go muddled in sadness and so I am embracing all of the things that bring joy and light to our life... simply put; the things that bring you joy.

If I subtitled some of that, than I might add the following:

1a.)  Go to Disneyworld.

2a.)  Run a 5K but only the silly ones like the ColorRun where rainbow paint is dumped on willing participants.

3a.)  Take in a Drive-In Movie.  The girls have asked to go for a few years and I can't believe we haven't done it.  2014 is our year for this.

4a.)  Enjoy the 'quiet' and savor the 'laughter'.  And repeat again and again and again. 

It is all pretty darn simple stuff and I feel confident that I can make it happen. 

And if you want, you can join us in our quest for fun too!  Shouldn't this be a new movement? 

Welcome to 2014 - the year of joy!
