Weekend Quote: All You Can Do

6 Comments 1570 views

Will you guys find it really obnoxious if I quote myself for this Weekend’s Quote?

Ahhh who cares, I’m doing it anyway!

I happened to be looking up a link for an old post when I stumbled across a Note to Self I wrote 2 years ago. It really helped me put things in perspective.

I ended the note with…

All you need to do, all you CAN do, is wake up tomorrow and be the best you can be. Stay conscious, stay present, stay healthy and enjoy the little things. I’m pretty sure he’s not worried about how he looks in these glasses and you shouldn’t worry either. Life is simply too short.

This week is going to be a whirlwind of activities, family time and celebrating. Today is The Husband’s birthday and his office holiday party. The same one we went to last year when he gave me the Best. Complement. Ever. <--another old post that make me cry.

Then Sunday is last minute preparations for Christmas. We decided to splurge on crab legs for our Christmas Eve dinner. We’ll have veggies out to dip while I make my homemade french onion soup, shrimp cocktail and the crab. That’s it. No crazy carby side dishes. I’d rather enjoy some cookies!

Our Christmas meal is stuffed shells, The Husband’s favorite. Then Wednesday we’re off to both sets of Grandparents for all the family gatherings.

It’s gonna be crazy but I’m taking my own advice. I’ll do the best I can and be thankful for everyday I get to spend with my family and friends.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

I’ll be peeking in the next few days to share my best of 2012 posts and I’m working on some fun challenges for the New Year. Let’s just say we’ll be kicking up the Wednesday Weigh Ins a notch! More later. :)

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.
