c'est la vie, 2010

Goodbye. Farewell. Peace Out. 2010.

Looking back on 2010 the thought of, "Did all that REALLY happen?!" keeps on coming to mind. Every year has it's ups and downs, it's highs and lows. I guess that's true for all of life.

C'est La Vie: French for "That's Life"

The New Year always gets me so pumped. It's the one time out of the year when you can look back over the last 12 months of your life, evaluate what happened, and try to figure out how to do it better in the coming 12 months. Who wouldn't want to improve their life? I think most people would love to fix things, tweak them, and make them all better. However, the majority of people "don't have time" or "don't feel like it".

I am not one of those people...

For 2011 I have compiled a list of 15 things I want to accomplish (one of which was to make a blog...success!). Surprisingly, I'm slightly daunted this year by the things I put on my list. Instead of putting "Be a better person" or "Grow closer to God" I'm striving to "Seek God's advice, 1st" and "Be content & happy in every situation." I think it is so easy to coast through life and just try to get through the day. I mean, let's be honest, who really wants to go through their junk and try to fix it? NO ONE!

But at least we can try.
We can strive.
And if we don't...C'est La Vie.


  1. Good job, Brooke! Love those thoughts and can't wait to see what God's going to do in your life this year. He has great plans for you, I know.

  2. Heck yeah girl, that was well said. I'm excited to see how we can grow in the new year. It'll be a good one!
