The beginning of a new season…Christmas

Christmas was never a good holiday for me, at least for the past 4 years. Family grows apart, friendships fade and well, the time of depression tends to set in….DEEPLY. But this holiday season I will make it different, I will make it better around my family. My spirits will be lifted, my mindset will be positive and my overall goal is to be as happy as I possibly can.

The empty bench that you see here will be filled with time spent reading, drinking coffee and conversations with people that I love and enjoy. So, come join me and help me make memories and laugh about the nonsense of life’s worries.

Happy Holidays,

Day 18 – #21EarlyDays with JRose!

Day 18 – WOW!! I can’t believe that I have been doing this for 18 days! Today, I woke up at 5am and much has already been done. I am really enjoying the early mornings, getting things taken care of and not having to rush to get dressed and beat the traffic. As I drink my cup of coffee, I listen to some smooth jazz on Pandora and read the current news reports. I look around my room and see what I can change, then walk to the living room/dining area and admire the dining table that my husband built for me. I sit and finish my coffee, look out the window and pray that Monday is a good day.

I spent a lot of time at home this weekend. It was relaxing and much needed. I finished up many personal tasks that needed to be taken care of. I cleaned out my email account of unnecessary stuff that needed to go away. Old emails that didn’t matter anymore and unsubscribed to many others. It was time to break away…..

It’s never too late….To break away from the herd.

It can take cold courage.

It’s your chance to follow your heart..

lift your head up,

choose your own course.

It can bring disdain and abuse.

But it will also bring esteem

and admiration.

But, above all, it brings self respect.

Stand on your own feet.

Be an individual.

Happy Monday!

Cheers,

JRose!
