38th Year

Yesterday was my 38th birthday. Eeeekkkk, I can't believe I'm 38 already. It seems as I am getting older, the years are going by faster. People tell me constantly I don't look like I am anywhere near 38, which is such a compliment. I love when people tell me that. I don't know what my secret is, but I am going to keep doing it!

As I contemplated what this new year had ahead of me, I started thinking of some things I wanted to accomplish before my 39th birthday. I guess these could be resolutions of sorts. I generally don't do New Year's Resolutions.

For my 38th year on earth, I hope to:
  • Cross at least two things off my bucket list. My list can be found here. I suppose this list needs to be updated as well. There are a few things I have changed my mind about.

  • Start Foster process. One of the things on my bucket list is to adopt a child. Which leads into something I want to accomplish this year. God had blessed me with a great apartment, a great 2 bedroom apartment. This year, I want to look into taking some classes to foster a child. I have accepted the fact that I may not birth a child in my life and I'm perfectly okay with that. However, I know there are plenty of children right here in Madison County who need someone to love them. I would like to think I would be a great mom. I absolutely love kids. And they love me as well. So, why couldn't I foster a child or even adopt one? I feel like I am ready for that step.

  • Get healthier. My last few posts have been about me dealing with some back trouble. I am not saying I am going to diet and start exercising like crazy. I honestly couldn't probably walk on a treadmill right now if I had to. But I just want to get healther, yes that involves me to make some eating changes and to exercise. But the goal is to hopefully lessen the need for surgery. Although, I have been told it is probably gonna happen, I'm gonna have some faith and see if things go in another direction. But I gotta have more than faith, I gotta put some things in action as well.

  • Memorize scripture. Why am I so horrible at doing this?!? I have gotten better about reading the Word, but memorizing is a whole different story.

  • Attend Covered Bridge Festival. Every year in Southern Indiana, there is a Covered Bridge tour that visits different bridges. Oh, I want to do that. I love covered bridges and I love photography. So I am adding that to my list to accomplish. 
So, there you have it. Some things are big, some are simple. I'd better get moving.

STOP wishing.
START doing.
