Let’s Talk about 2013!

Happy New Year, everyone!

Is anyone making resolutions?

This year, I’ve decided not to make any resolutions, and simply take one day at a time with Tripp.  Life is hard enough not to add layers of expectations on top of a new year!  Did you guys make any?  What did you decide to do better in 2013?

    I’m not making any either. I do, however, chose a word each year that is going to be my focus and this year it is “positive”. I want to be better at being positive.

    Getting closer in my relationship with God, reading my Bible more, eating right, working out, obviously sticking with dancing 😉 , and getting back into piano lessons!

    My new years resolution is just to draw closer to God this year, to turn from sinful habits and draw closer to Him.. same resolution every year from now on! Bristol you are courageous and you are someone girls around the world can look up to. Life hits hard for everyone, but some people don’t get knocked over and stay down… instead they not only keep moving forward but they actually manage to help others along the way- you’re one of those people. I hope my little sister grows up to have a character like yours Bristol. God bless you in 2013!

    My resolution for 2013 is to finally be able to get the small therapy pool to help me with my Multiple Sclerosis, then put in the hard work at rebuilding my muscles, walk better, improve my quality of life and change my status from home bound and trapped at home, to a productive part of society once again.

      I wish you success with your resolution. Thanks for the link, I will check it out. I bought a book from the library recently, written by a doctor about his life with MS. I suspect someone in my family (he is in his twenties) has it. From the book it seems people with especially wheat (and some other) allergies are susceptible to MS. The person I’m talking about woke up twice in the span of one year with what the doctors thought was bels palsy. After more than a year some of the symptoms still not gone, so I am worried about him. The book suggests a gluten-free diet, but the person I’m talking about won’t listen, still too young and restless. I pray for him (still hoping it is not MS) and for you for healing and strength.

    I didn’t make any resolutions per say but I am trying to be more like you, independant and loving life with the brethren at a local church…have a great 2013!

    My New Years resolution is to put my cell phone down and spend more time with my son! Like you, I’m taking it one day at a time. Happy New Years!

  • melory

    Mine is to buy your mom’s book on fitness and lose weight.
    For now I will try out the no flour, no sugar diet. I forgot the doctor’s name who wrote a book about it.

  • Patsy Carlisle

    Cleaning out pantry, utility room and closet are my three main resolutions. Losing 20#’s by April 1 for a cruise, and exercising 3-4x/wk. Wish me luck. LOL

  • I did make a new years resolution…….just be happy!!!

  • blackbird

    Lose weight, get down to 180lbs from 220lbs, generally improve my fitness and health and also do more to help others in any way I can.

    Bristol, I know a way to have an easier time rearing Tripp. If you and Gino married, he would be his daddy and I promise you it would become easier. Plus, having a son myself, I know how much a boy is drawn to his father, that male figure. It’s remarkable.
    When my son, Sammy, was four I was telling him about Jesus and how he could ask him in his heart. His father wasn’t a Christian. He would tell me, “NO, I want to drink beer like Daddy!” Not long after, the Holy Spirit had gotten ahold of him and he did give his heart to Jesus. Many years later I wanted to give him Christian CD to listen to in the car. He told me it had to be by male singers. His own little boy wanted to wear tiny boxer shorts because his father wore that kind. Do you get the picture? Tripp needs a father and you need a husband. The key thing a husband does is provide PROTECTION and a covering for the family. He is very important. Don’t listen to the feminism of the world. Look at the fruit: women are alone making money. Their husband has taken off and they are left with children who are very unhappy and dis-functional. THAT’S the fruit of the world’s teachings.

    My New Years Resolution is to try not stoop to the level of the trolls who come here or anywhere else with their PDS. And before I reply to them I will remember to ask myself WWJD (what would JESUS do).

    So Happy New Year Bristol and Happy New Year to Sarah and the rest of the Palins and Heaths.

    Mine is to keep trusting in The Lord, and to pray for people more, even my enemies. Another one is to volunteer for my county, I want to be in government and getting close to college. I don’t usually do these resolutions, but I’ve lowered the bar for me this year!

  • Leona

    Humbly asked Jesus to take hold of my life 100 percent. Have Him teach me to be more like Him, less of myself and more of Him. Live one day at a time with Him in control. Its gonna be really hard but with Him everything is possible.
