Things in motion tend to stay in motion. Wasn't that a Physics principle I learned in high school? Well, my momentum from 2009 has carried over and I am armed with the tools I need to continue this healthy living adventure.
Exercise and healthy eating are aspects that have improved my ability to deal with life's challenges. Specifically, I've lost 6 dear ones in the last two years, and I now have 4 more who are just about ready to depart as well. Seeing them deteriorate before my eyes is a process that is not easily understood unless you've been through it yourself. Suffice it to say, it has knocked me for a loop in many ways.
However, due to keeping myself healthy and happy (there's a core of happiness in my heart that is a flame that does not go out), I am able to deal with things so much better than when I was out of sync with healthy habits. I'm on much more solid ground and armed with tools to cope, as well as physical health and stability to aid in the process.
My continued gratitude to SP and all of my friends here. Let's make this a year to remember.
