I'm Back.........

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

So today is the first day with most of my co-workers back in the office. I was so getting used to the peace and quiet. Now it gets busy.

Isn't it funny how we keep thinking that our lives are going to be easier once the new year begins...and then the new year starts and it just stays hectic.

So I am taking a deep breathe...staying focused....live in the moment.

    You can say that again. Before I even had a chance to login to my computer, there was a note on my screen and shortly the person who wrote the note showed up.

It's off to a good year!

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

Today started off on the right note...with friends. After a quiet New Years Eve, we had the good fortune to start the day with good friends. It's was a wonderful time.

I have great hopes for this year but none of its worth much without the love and support of family and friends. So this was a great day.

Hope that you all had great evenings last night. My wish for you...that 2013 will be a wonderful one for you.

Something Ends, Something Begins.....its all good!

Monday, December 31, 2012

So today is the very last day of 2012. While I look at the year with mixed emotions....some of this year was great...others...well, not so! Still, it is always with a sense of sadness when we say goodbye and step into the great unknown - 2013.

So I wanted to do a quick recap of the year and give you just a little of my wisdom gained from having gone through this 58 times.

1) The Mayans were wrong. When I woke up on the morning of December 21 I realized that Mayans were wrong. All those things I put off hoping that the world would be coming to an end meant I had to deal with them...and do it quickly. Heck - it would have been such an easy out if the world had just stopped.

2) Getting back into shape isn't easy. In August of this year all of a sudden I got it! The day I stepped onto the scales and saw 228 staring me in the face - well - that was the day I decided to get my act together and just do it! So on the last day of the year I am weighing in at 203.2 and after a few weeks of no movement - am back on track. 2013 Goal: 185 by May 31.

3) I didn't realize that my body isn't as young as it used to be! As I began the process of getting into shape - this included running, relearning tennis, weightlifting, etc.....it slowly began to sink in that there are parts of my body that hurt! I guess I just didn't realize that as one grows older that the parts don't always want to cooperate. So I spend a lot more time recuperating after each workout but you know what...its good to be alive and feeling it!

4) Work isn't the end all and be all. Its taken me a long time to realize that while I love my job, and I love my work, its not the only thing in life I should be focused on. How about my partner, by family, church and the things I love to do outside the workplace. So this next year it will be about balance - trying to regain it!

5) Last - its about change. As I have aged I always think that I can't change - that I have become set in my ways - yet this year proves to me in so many ways that indeed we can change. As I look at my shrinking body, my improving health, loving family and restructured priorities...indeed we can and do change. Its a good thing.

So as I say goodbye to 2012 - I wish each of you all the best now and always. May your 2013 be an amazing one.

I want to leave you with one great little thought -

Sometimes the only transportation available to you is a leap of faith.

May your life be filled with leaps of faith.

So it will be a few football games, the number 1 match rerun on tennis channel (Love 30) and a walk with the dogs. It's all good. Hope everyone gets to have a calm and restful day.

Putting things away!

Saturday, December 29, 2012

Today is the day I begin the process of putting things away. After spending days getting ready for the holidays, now is the time to beginning repacking and restoring the house to its normal appearance. Funny thing about the process is that no matter how much you try to put things back the way they were, it always ends up just a little different. And you know what? That's not a bad thing.

I look at this time of the year as an opportunity to see things differently as I go about normalizing the home. Thinking just a little bit harder about what I want to do differently now and throughout the upcoming year. I hope you will take this opportunity as well.

    It's time for me to put this year behind me and learn from my mistakes. Make the best out of 2013 and be a wiser and self loving person.
