I just typed out a long blog - a very long blog... and I myself did what I was just complaining about in the blog I wrote! I have become complacent. I have gotten lax, and have stopped making copies of my posts before I hit publish. What happened? I lost it of course. I am mad at myself for doing that - and I’d never be able to retype exactly what I wrote.
The gist of it was...
There are only 6 more days in January = 1/12 of the year is gone. How are you doing with New Year’s resolutions? Are you achieving your goals?
I went on to report that I am doing pretty good.
Hannah’s blog is getting lots of traffic, if not lots of orders. I know that with time her business will start to grow exponentially.
I got my website up finally [Link Removed] - although I’d like to find someone who is better at wordcrafting than I, at least it is a start. I had procrastinated for more than 6 months!
I have all but two people for my core Perfect Body Shape/Lean for Life Oh So Lean challenge team.
And I am exercising much more regularly, although I haven’t made my goal yet.
I can honestly say that I can head into February feeling like I have accomplished something this month.

Then I went on to talk about how everyone on this site is Fabulous, especially for their encouraging words, and helping each other.  

And then I let the air out of my own sails by talking about my frustrations with the ‘big move’ not looking like it is going to happen. I am glad our family is going to be back together, but sad for hubby because he is opting to return to familiarity, but also to what he hates. I so wanted to see him be able to live his dreams and be happy with his work. He says he wants to build the Mannatech biz to the point that he can stay home... but I am not convinced. And I am struggling to be upbeat about it all. And then I lost my stupid post... which left me even more disgruntled. :(
But, I’ll be fine! I am so glad His mercies are new every morning. I always feel better after a night’s sleep. So, with that, I think I’ll head to bed and look for the sun to shine in my window tomorrow! But not before I copy this post. LOL

    • Oh Dee dee! sorry that happened! im not sure why it does that!

      well, i am making changes and starting on my goal for a new life, and if i might say, i am doing good! at the moment i have had to use what i have here, and i know once i can get better in home, then it will be great!

      i am looking forward to Hannahs business going off the ground and just rocketing!  

      i will go back to the website.. was there the other night, but went to bed before i really reas anything.. it looked good to me Dee Dee!

      Im sorry that the move didn't work.. just remember that the Lord closes doors that NO ONE can open, and He opens doors NO ONE can close! maybe He has something better for hubby back at home?

      Sleep well my friend, and remember that brings NEW BEGINNINGS and NEW BLESSINGS

      Much love,
      Linni

    • Dee Dee, I am sorry you lost your original post.  I am glad this let your steam out a little bit.  So, I am slow, is your husband quitting his job and wanting to be home with you?

    • Sooooooo frustrating Dee Dee....I know I have not yet learned to copy before I hit publish.....I have lost several that I have never rewrote.

      I think we get the gist of it...and I just offer my love and support. We are all one here.

    • CD,
      He took a job in Colorado and we were waiting here until the house sold. He has been there less than 3 months (there are some extenuating circumstances which have led him to decide before the 3 month mark) and has now decided that he wants to go back to his old job where they will welcome him with open arms (or so they have expressed.) To me, it is returning to a mediocre life, one he was unhappy with... but he misses us so badly that he feels it is the best choice. I think once he goes back, he will settle in and be happy with mediocre. IMO, being happy with mediocrity is worse than being unhappy with it, because you are less likely to make a change. Does that make sense?

      Thanks Linni (and CD) for your encouraging words. I feel a bit like a deflated balloon. frown

    • dee dee, so sorry about the move. Must not have been the right thing right now.  

      I so understand about the mediocre thing. But, maybe there is something more in store for you guys.  

      And I have been so lax as to not thank you for the awesome soap sample. I will be by the shop as soon as we get a new paycheck. I loved it!!!

      And I know the feeling of losing the blogs/posts. I have now, for the long blogs been doing them in word and copying. I hate the session expired thing. lol oi i see red! tongue out

      Things will look better in the morning and I know the changes coming will be good. At least you will all be together! ♥

    • lou’s right some times things happen for a reason. I don’t make resolutions. If I haven’t already started working on something then why plan a day to start, just do it!!!

    • Maria,
      These were actually things I was working on, but starting a new year always gives me renewed vigor, esp in the dead of winter when I tend to get dormant.
      Thanks Lu, Tracy - I guess in my frustration I just want to know WHAT the reason was - for him to go to Colorado, leave me to single parent for 3 months, yadayadayada.... I am of the personality type that once I make a commitment to something, I am going to do it, or die trying. I try to tell myself he isn’t ‘quitting‘, it is his decision, I just want him to be happy, etc. I’ll convince myself eventually. LOL

    • My new year, started off ok.  I have recently been approved by the dept of education here in Pennsylvania to own and operate a massage therapy school.  This has been a journey, but a good journey.

      My jewelry business I have put on the back burner for now, and I’m designing and creating new peices in my free type that I do have left at the end of the day.

      I would have to say, I beleive that I am on target with my goals for 2009.  

      Carolyn
