This is the year that I will stop wishing that my reality is different than it is. I will live my life the best that I can with what I’ve got to work with.

I will get back to exercising regularly. I was walking 2-3 miles a day all summer and then I fell off the wagon. My two best friends and I are going to exercise together, 2-3 days a week. This is not about being thin — it is about getting down to a healthy weight and feeling better about myself.

I will stop feeling so insecure about every move I make. All eyes are not on me, every thing I do is not stupid, my friends are not burdened by me and if they were, they would tell me so. I will live my life without second-guessing every detail.

I will knit myself an awesome sweater that fits me now. I will stop putting off making it “until I’m smaller”. I deserve a rockin’ hand-knit sweater now and I’m worth the effort.

This is the year that I will become legally divorced. I will learn to be okay with that.

I'm Heather, a married mama of two teen girls, a stillborn baby girl (7/1/12), and a sweet and wild preschool girl (4/2/14). I've been blogging at The Destiny Manifest since 2001. I like to write about appreciating all of the beautiful little things that surround us, particularly in the face of grief, infant loss and mental health issues. Every day is an adventure!
