Tough Journey

My life has been a tough journey. One of my resolutions for this year was to take care of my health. Then again, it has been a tough one and I mean it. I can’t believe at this stage of my life, how the depression has taken over and changed my personality. The part I don’t like when it’s affecting my family and myself. I’ve stopped taking my MEDs since the week of my son’s wedding. It wasn’t doing any good. I decide to fight the depression with natural remedies and I still don’t see any improvements.

This weekend has been a tough one. I’m trying to keep my mind occupied with reading, coloring, or trying to write. However, these simple tasks are getting harder when I can’t concentrate and my thoughts are all over the place.

My husband found in Hulu a new series by Stephen King named “Castle Rock” and he wants to watch it with me. I need to be relaxed so I can be ready for work tomorrow.



My New Resolution for 2014!

After a wonderful Christmas, it’s time to relax, eat leftovers, and enjoying the gifts we got from Santa and our families.  I got from my husband a Kindle Fire HDX so it’s time to play with my Kindle and downloads my books.

The kids are happy they got what they want and the little ones  they’re playing with their toys. So for now, I will relax and I don’t want to hear any mention of any retail store with their discounts.  I don’t care and they already have enough from me.

In a few days, we will be saying goodbye to 2013 and welcomed in 2014. I will be cooking just for my kids, hubby, and grandkids. My older kids will go to their party and I will be watching the Time Square Ball with my hubby and grandkids. Part of the tradition is having grapes so we can have our twelve wishes and of course our traditional kiss.

In addition I will try to make a new resolution for the New Year that in some cases I will forget a few days later. That’s one of the reasons I will not be making the losing weight resolution.

This time my resolution will be very simple:

1-Have more gratitude for all the little things I take for granted.

2-Be thankful for all the blessings I’m been receiving.

3-Have more compassion for the people I know and I don’t know.

4-Keep loving my wonderful husband of 30 years.

5-Take time to myself at least once a week and relax.

6-Been thankful for the love of my beautiful family.

7-Be more patience at work and ignore the ones who drive me crazy.

8-Keep loving my dog who gives me unconditional love.

9-Keep writing, writing, and writing!

10- Keep doing what I love to do.
