I'm going to get through the month of December!

Sunday, December 04, 2011

I've noticed that a lot of people aren't fond of the holidays either. For me it's a double whammy as my birthday is the day after Christmas. I never used to mind as much. Sure.... I got what some would say "gyped" out of a celebration and presents. But that wasn't that important to me. I guess this year I'm feeling my age and I'm not liking the age number creeping up. Mostly because I had dreamed that my life would be so much different when I reached this age.
Well.... one thing that is different is that my weight is the lowest it's been in many, many years and I feel like I'm heading towards that healthier lifestyle. Sure I'm not perfect at it...and I probably never will be.... but I'm going in the right direction nonetheless!

I had fun dancing last night until there was a bit of a crinkle in my night. I left earlier than I planned but I still did a lot of dancing. Today that "crinkle" has been smoothed over and I'm getting to rest up for a busy week. My work holiday party is Friday. I have a really nice outfit to wear..... thanks to my daughter who knows how to shop clearance. I want to look my best because I'll be meeting people who may be interviewing me for a better job/permotion. I know that looks shouldn't matter but honestly they do. The way you present yourself physically leaves the first impression. I have the skills for the job(s) I've been applying for but I just need to be given the chance. At my age I need to move up quickly so I can even think about retiring in the near future not to mention that an increase in salary might help alleviate some of the financial difficulties I'm finding myself in.

So I'm going to do my best to stay positive and get through this month. For any of you that find December tough as well for whatever reason...... keep in mind it's only one month out of the year and it always seems to fly by quickly..... a consolation for me. It will be January 2012 soon and what I haven't accomplished for 2011 I'm determined I'll conquer in 2012!

Have a great week! And Keep Sparkin.....it works!!!!

    December is only one month of the year and January 2012 will be here before we know it. Keep up the great work and on getting the job that you want. I will be praying for you.

    December is tough on a lot of people, too much food, not enough exercise, not enough sunlight, too many plans that don't meet our expectations, and disappointments. There is also the joy of the season, and the well-wishes of people we only talk to once a year!!
    I like what you said about December only being one month out of the year, but it seems to be the month we beat ourselves over the most. Enjoy!
    January will be here soon, and most of us already have the plan in place to make our New Years' Resolutions, and make them work!!
    Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas! emoticon
