So in between episodes of Bunheads (the marathon), cups of tea, loads of laundry and phone calls with family, I had time to reflect on the upcoming year and how I want to spend the precious time of life. I asked myself what I want to achieve; what I want to contribute; how I can strengthen my relationships; and how I can move closer to becoming the best possible version of myself. Many questions ,,, and the answers form the basis of my resolutions.
I resolve to appreciate and honour the life I have been granted. In addition I will make a conscious effort to floss more religiously, get my first colonoscopy, seek out the mismatched socks, and eat more vegetables EVERY day.
This time next year I will be able to say: I am a loving, caring wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend; the main colour of the food I eat is green; I donate weekly; I volunteer; I tell people how much they mean to me; I learn something new each and every day; I pay it forward and give more than I take; I love my daily walks.
Life is a series of new beginnings. When we start, try, pursue and stall - we start over again or just keep going forward. The trick is to never stop trying; to be persistent and not dwell on the stall. So that's the plan and I'm sticking with it. I am... not "I will".
I am grateful and contented... and such is my life!
