New Year, New You but New Me?!?

After a few weeks of not blogging I thought what better time to start back up again – than to get myself rolling with the new year vastly approaching us. With 2013 coming to an end, its time for me to come up with my list of resolutions….which I hope that i can try to be able to check off and complete this year. I’m hoping that it won’t be to hard with our active family! Image

1) OrganizationFirst things first – Organizing!!! This year I want to be more proactive and be more organized at home. I feel a little purging is in our near future. As much as I love to be able to hold on to things that I “might” use again down the road and have yet to do so, its time to do just that! It will take some will power to do but I’ll keep reminding myself its for the best!

2) Take time for myself to enjoy the things I love to do.
Read more – a book a month – that shouldn’t be to hard right!?! Paint more, craft more…..
3) Family Wellness / Fitness
A great gift from my husband to the family this Christmas was a new membership to the Y here in Springfield. I’m looking forward to the classes and know the kids will enjoy their classes and the pool too. Hopefully together 2014 can turn into the family back into a fit one together!

4) Try new recipes/Cook more together as a family
We tend to get in ruts throughout the year/seasons on the meals we like to have and those that are easy to make to get the job done. I’m hopeful with my pinterest boards that we can jazz up our meals and try more enticing entrees as we go!

5) New Business
I’ve been kicking around the idea of my own business (graphic design, analytics, web, etc) and think this year will be the year to start taking bigger steps to making that dream a reality!

To help me complete these goals I will keep blogging each month on the progress making each month its own special project per say. Will you join me and take the new year and make a new “you” too!

In Rememberance….

Today and tomorrow will be hard for my family.  We lost a very amazing, intelligent, loveable, caring, dear individual last week.   Grandma & Great Grandma Antoinette Marie Picco Fyans past Wednesday, December 18, 2013.  Even though we do not see you Grandma – We know you are hear with us.  You have taught all of us many valuable lessons in life but the one we know you would want us to remember today and always – is not to be sad but to be glad and happy.  You are in heaven looking down on us, smiling as we remember our times together.  Knowing that some day we will be reunited together.  Tribute to Grandma Fyans

I truly am blessed to be part of the Fyans family and to call you Grandma.  I know you came into my life for not just a reason, nor a season but for a lifetime.  You have taught me no matter what keep going and moving.  No matter what speak your mind and let those around you know what you think.  Love you Grandma Fyans!  I look forward to seeing you in Heaven some day.


People come into your life for a Reason, a Season or a Lifetime

People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for each person. When someone is in your life for a REASON . . . It is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and they are! They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrong doing on your part, or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered. And now it is time to move on.

When people come into your life for a SEASON . . .Because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. They bring you an experience of peace, or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.
