So about that resolution? I confess, I didn’t make them this year. I never make them, at least not for New Years. I am one of those weird ones that think your birthday is the start of your New Year and if you’re going to make resolutions you should do it then.
But let’s face it, my last two birthdays have sucked mule eggs ( HAD to use that one, a Belle’s grandmother said it and it cracked me up).
On my birthday in 2015 my niece Caylee was murdered. To say I didn’t have sense enough to even think of anything other than not losing my mind would be an understatement. I’ve decided not to celebrate my birthday on that date and if I could legally change the date of my birth I would. Probably not what Caylee would want me to do, but there is nothing about that day that will ever make me want to celebrate anything.
If you follow this page at all, then you know on my last birthday (2016) I was sitting in SICU at Duke University while fighting for my husband’s life. Rather he was fighting and I was sending him every ounce of energy I had.
The ONLY resolution I’ve made for the last two years is NOT to give up. Just keep hanging on and putting one foot in front of the other and remember to breathe once in a while. That’s all I’ve been able to do. I’m not sure if it even qualifies as a resolution. It’s just the only way I know how to handle the hand I’ve been dealt.
Did you make any resolutions for the New Year?
