January 1

IMG_0807It’s the first day of a new year.  Most of us feel as if this is a new beginning.  Let’s try to keep this thought going past the first few weeks of January.  I am going to write a list of my wishes and goals for the new year.  If written down, I almost feel as if I can revisit them, remind myself of what I want to achieve and keep these goals alive for the year.

My list begins:

. Go back to my healthy eating routine and continue my gym commitment.  With my daughter getting married this year, I have even stronger reasons to achieve my goal.

Go back to the novel I started last summer.  I only wrote an outline and one chapter.  If I can visit it at least once each week (and more if possible) I can achieve my goal.  It is difficult with a full time job but no more excuses.

.Slow down.  I am always eager to get everything done.  This year I plan to take time for myself to refuel more often.

. Give more freely to others even if they have hurt me.  Remind myself that everyone has a different journey and people’s avoidance does not directly relate to me.

Live each day to the fullest.  Even when I have a bad day at work I want to remind myself of the good in my life.

Reconnect with God.

That’s it for now.  If I accomplish the above I will be very happy with myself.  I would like to wish everyone a happy and healthy new year.  Remember be kind to yourself and always try your best.
