What's your New Years resolution?

While everyone else is making never ending lists re: their new years resolutions, mine is simple.

To health and happiness and much can be categorized under these headings.

What happens this year, if out of my reach, is not my problem.
What other people do, if against my better judgement, is not my problem.
What I do and how I do it, is my business.
If you can't resolve it, forget it.

I've spent too long catering to the needs of others and it's not made me healthy or happy. People aid, but in the same breath people ask.

2013 was a year for family, because if I ever needed them the most, it was last year. Still need them, but not in that same extent. I need to feed my soul before I feed theirs.

And that's my new years resolution.
Health and Happiness.

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
