Happy New Year 2016

This new year feels fresh, full of new dreams, goals, and possibilities, and lots of Sparkle & Spontaneity.  What that means is our lives have been reset, and we have new motivation to seek our dreams, change our lives, and make a difference in the world.  Your world is as big or small as you see it, and as far as I'm concerned, I see my life as BIG.  When we stay in our own circle, we see the world as BIG.  But as we venture out, travel more, meet new people, we see how small it really is because we find out that we know somebody who knows somebody and eventually down the line, we have connections in common.

Has that ever happened to you?  Chances are it has.  If not, 2016 is a great time to get out there and find out who you know that you didn't know you knew before.  Make new friends, try new foods, visit new countries/town/cities, learn new skills, and smile more.  If you woke up today to read this post, then both you and I are meant to be on this Earth.  Not only be here, but we're meant to be here on Earth at the SAME TIME.  Isn't that fascinating?  I wonder what we have in common and what we can learn from each other.

There are a few changes to this blog that I'll be implementing immediately.  Center alignment is so 2015.  This year, 2016, I will be aligning the text to the left.  Of course, this could change at any time, but as of today, it's to the left.

I'm also going to change and rearrange the links/pages at the top.  I need to redefine what this blog is really about.  It has definitely morphed since inception, and that's a good thing.  It's good because I change, you change, the world changes, and therefore www.beckycharms.com needs to remain current and applicable by "changing with the times."  Oh my gosh, how cliché, yet timelessly true!

"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." -John 3:16

My world never felt so temporary as it did this morning when the right side of my face wasn't working.  I mean, I had lost so much feeling and muscle control that when I smiled, only half of my face was smiling. When I winked, only the left side could even do it.  It was most noticeable when I wanted to close my eyes and my right eye couldn't close all the way.  In the shower, water was seeping in.  Let's take a moment as focus on how much I was FREAKING OUT!  I prayed.  I prayed that God would heal my face completely, that I would regain total control of my muscles.  I have total FAITH in God/Jesus that He is in charge, and that HE is the only one that has the power to perform this healing.  I don't know if it's miracle status, but it's a priority of mine.  I pray it's a priority of His; please, Father.
It reminds me how temporary life is, and how we are all going to leave this Earth one day.  Some sooner than others, some later.  But if you're here today, you have a purpose; a Heavenly purpose beyond your doing.  God has a plan for you, as He does for me, and He reminds us all the time how we belong to Him and not ourselves.

Amidst my freak out today, I could still find plenty for which to be thankful, because as they say, there is always something/s to be thankful for.

I've included them in my most recent FB post:

"2016: Sparkle & Spontaneity

To date: Urgent care twice. Starting off with PCOS, clinically obese, flat feet, high lipid panel {cholesterol & triglycerides}, borderline pre-diabetic, & Bell's Palsy. Awesome.
Giving thanks for my husband who drove to and waited with me at Urgent Care, without complaining. Giving thanks for my parents with whom I was able to drop off my favorite person, my daughter, while I went to UC. Giving thanks for steroid shots and modern "western" medicine, which is already starting to work. Giving thanks that I can still see my baby girl's big beautiful blue eyes, hear her sweet loving voice, feel her warm hands on my arm, feel her tender loving hugs, and still kind of taste the food I'm eating. My tongue is about 2/3 numb. Another bonus for a food blogger/enthusiast. (<---sarcasm, for those that don't "get it".)

Because everybody loves an obese girl with Bell's Palsy. That's hot. (left eye roll, because the right one isn't working) *sigh* I"m not afraid of my number, are you? It's 212, some days; 210 other days.
We've got a lot of work to do, new year. Marathon training as well, along with some ways to decrease stress. Grrr. ‪#‎quietlyhighstrung‬

Ok God, you got this? ‪#‎HeavenlyWishListIMeanPrayerList‬
It's time for me to go put in my eye drops and tape my eyelid shut so nobody freaks out when they wake up and see me with one eye happily closed and one eye freakishly wide open. 0_<
