I once heard that where you are when Midnight strikes is a prediction of how your year will go.
Ok, since I am a woman of great intelligence, I have lived by this for, like, the last 5 years. So here is it New Year's Eve and I have no big plans.
Know what? WHO CARES?!
My year will go exactly the way it's supposed to. It won't matter if I am picking $1 million dollars off a money tree. That won't help my financial situation. (Unless it's MY tree!)
I was raised as a princess. Not just any princess, mind you. I was the princess in the tower, who had her brave knight to rescue her. Who, once rescued, would never have a bad day. Ever.
Divorce was possibly the best thing that ever happened to me. Sad, yes. Complicated, yes. But, it taught me that there is no magical easy answer to anything!
I have learned to stand on my own two feet. I am raising 4 kids BY MYSELF. I do not get every other weekend to relax and regroup for the coming 2 weeks. I do not get child support to ease the financial burden. I have no family or church financial backing either.
So, yea Janine. You did it!
My New Year's Resolution? STOP stressing about things I cannot control. Hating my ex-husband will not make him take the kids. Envisioning him dying is not going to get him child support.
Complaining is not going to make things easier. There is no White Horse waiting. I need to build my own. Or like the one I have....a 1997 green one with 177,988 miles on it...LOL!
Here's to a NEW year! A NEW chance! Happy New Year everyone! Make it count!
