New Attitudes

I have to confess that I have been grumpy..... yes, grumpy.... but that is over.  

I did not make any New Year's Resolutions.  In fact, my resolutions happen all year long..... just because a ball drops in New York or the calendar is thrown out (or in my case recycled into a card or something) and a new one opened - does not mark the time that I am fully aware that I need to improve.... it is an ongoing process.  Messy, struggling, sometimes even stubborn..... but clearly an ongoing process. 

Oh my goodness... when I start to think of all the things I said in my life that I wish I could take back... or the looks (not pleasant) I have given to others and wish it had been a smile instead..... or the person I failed to give a dollar to.... 



So many lost chances.  

But to wallow in it would be unproductive and possibly selfish.... no definitely selfish. 

So time to move forward.  Wash the slate clean and work for the best.  

I am not perfect.  I am not the best at anything and I am not the most beautiful.... but I am loved.  Couldn't ask for anything more! 

So here is to new attitudes! 


  1. I concur! Great sentiments. I feel very much the same way. I do like the new year b/c it makes things seem so fresh - but I'm w/you 100% on improving yourself every day.

    (PS: Can you let me know if my blog tells you when I reply to you? I'm always sure to reply when people post - but I do so in the comments, and I'm wondering if people get an email or something that I wrote back...? I wrote you back on the salmon recipe post. :) )

  2. Hi Cassandra! Thanks so much for being the first person to comment on my blog! (It is a milestone for me:)

    I did not get an email notification that your responded to my comment on your blog.... I did however get one from this comment.

    Thanks again!!! I cannot wait to see what recipe you try next! Yum...

  3. What a great sentiment- I agree with you entirely!
    I'm looking forward to seeing what you make too!
    Count me in as a new follower!
    Have a great week.

  4. Thanks Annaboo! Love your blog and thanks for following mine! Hope you have a great week too!
