Dear Santa it’s a long story… Have I been naughty or nice? Well I think this year coal is out of the question as most would agree. I have been nice, but it’s a long story.
I have worked hard on getting old bad relationships out of my life and forgiving those who have done me wrong. But don’t misunderstand me, forgiving doesn’t mean forgetting and letting those people back into my life. It means letting it go and going on with my life. There is a difference.
I have gone out of my way to be a better person. I have tried to take criticism from my family and friends about my shortcomings and work on them. One example is patience. I have very little patience. I am actively working on it every day. After all, you have to take a look at what is important to you and truly only family matters. My homework, television shows, cleaning, can all be put off if one of my kids wants to spend time with me or needs me for something. I have realized that it is important to look at your day and see what is really necessary. What things make you happy at the end of the day? On my to do list is work and taking care of my kids, grown ones and little one. If I find I still have things on my to do list, I have had to learn to decide if they are important or do they get scratched off and forgotten for the day. If its homework that I have to do to finish my degree than I know I have to burn the midnight oil and get it done. But the sense of accomplishment makes me feel good when I do get to bed.
Santa, I know I have struggled with my finances so I am going to take the advice of Financial Peace University and get a financial advocate. I will have to be accountable to someone else besides myself on purchases.
Santa, I promise to do better with my fitness goals. Yes, how many people say this every year but I am already feeling better and getting healthier day by day with the help of supplements and protein drinks. I think this major change has really helped me put my health first. If I can’t take care of myself, then I can’t take care of anyone else.
Santa, I don’t need anything this year, I just ask for my children to be healthy and happy and that is all I need.
