I have an interest in keeping that passion for letter writing aflame, not because it means stationery or stamps stick around longer, but because it means we are still spending time on one another in a world where we move from thing to thing so quickly.

A year has almost come and gone. 2015 will soon be a faded memory. It will be a year of triumph for some and failure for others. I have not done what I should have this past year. I have maintained but have not lost anything else except in this past few weeks. I am going to be a different person in 2016. One with more determination than 2015. I can do this, I know I can.

I am not going to be the same person I was a year ago. I am not going to be standing in my own way, yet I am going to adopt ways in which I will enhance myself even more then in 2015. Each month I will write a chapter in my book about what the month has presented to me and how I have handled it.

My goals are simple. To do the best I can do in any given situation, which for me means taking time for myself every single day. I WILL NOT BE A SLACKER!!!

1.) I will continue to exercise consistently

2.) I will continue to track the foods I eat and learn from my mistakes, but most of all try not to make mistakes I have made previously.

3.) I will continue to drink at least 8 glasses, if not more, daily.

4.) I will continue to log on to Spark People and accumulate at least 75 points or more daily.

5.) I will become more active in the 4 groups that I belong to.

    Comfort Zone
    by Anonymous

    I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I wouldn't fail.
    The same four walls and busywork were really more like jail.
    I longed so much to do the things I'd never done before,
    But stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor.

    I said it didn't matter that I wasn't doing much.
    I said I didn't care for things like commission checks and such.
    I claimed to be so busy with the things inside the zone,
    But deep inside I longed for something special of my own.

    I couldn't let my life go by just watching others win.
    I held my breath; I stepped outside and let the change begin.
    I took a step and with new strength I'd never felt before,
    I kissed my comfort zone goodbye and closed and locked the door.

    If you're in a comfort zone, afraid to venture out,
    Remember that all winners were at one time filled with doubt.
    A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true.
    Reach for your future with a smile; success is there for you!
