A New Year...A New Outlook
Saturday, January 01, 2011
As I reflect back over the last year, I realize that I have not been consistent in my goals to be healthier and more active. I didn't end up keeping most of the resolutions that were made in 2010. I could think of so many New Years resolutions to make for this new year but since most of us usually don't end up keeping those resolutions, I'm going to try something different this year.
Making resolutions focuses on what is wrong with us. I want to turn that around and instead of a list of resolutions, l want to make a list of what is RIGHT in my life...the blessings I have been given, the good friends, my family, my health...and have that as my focus instead as we enter this wonderful new year.
I am so grateful for all the gifts, blessings, and resources that God has blessed me with!
I am grateful for my family and also that my mother is still here with us in spite of her 4+ years battle with pancreatic cancer!
I am grateful for my friends... and the chance to meet new friends and reconnect with old friends on Facebook and Spark People!
I am grateful for my health!
I pray that in 2011..... I have a grateful heart, that I see the positive in me and in others, and that I might be a light to others traveling on this journey with me. Here's to 2011 being a fabulous year!
