Happy Happy Happy New Year!

I can't believe it's 2014! It's going to be a wonderful year. I am working on some fun new posts and can't wait to share all my ideas with you. My mom sent me this beautiful New Years quote and had to share it with you all. This is the original credo from Al-anon that Dear Abby puts in the paper every New Years. 

Just for today:  I will live through this day only.  I will not brood about yesterday or obsess about tomorrow.  I will not set far reaching goals or try to overcome all my problems at once.  I know that I can do something for 24 hours that would overwhelm me if I had to keep it up for a lifetime.
Just for today:  I will be happy.  I will not dwell on thoughts that depress me.  If my mind fills with clouds, I will chase them away with sunshine.
Just for today:  I will accept what is.  I will face reality.  I will correct those things that I can correct and accept those I cannot.
Just for today:  I will improve my mind.  I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration.  I will not be a mental loafer.
Just for today:  I will make a conscious effort to be agreeable.  I will be kind and courteous to those who cross my path, and I'll not speak ill of others.  I will improve my appearance, speak softly, and not interrupt when someone else is talking.
Just for today:  I will refrain from improving anybody but myself.
Just for today:  I will do something positive to improve my health.  If I'm a smoker, I'll quit.  If I am overweight, I will eat healthfully - if only for today.  And not only that I will get off the couch and take a brisk walk, even if it's only around the block.
Just for today:  I will gather the courage to do what is right and take the responsibility for my own actions.

Thanks for all your support and love! Nothing makes my day more than when I read all the kind words and love you leave me. Be safe.
