Twelve days, twelve gifts?
Monday, December 26, 2011
On the first day of Christmas, my youngest daughter gave to me peace, joy, and an attempt at harmony. My eldest daughter gave to me attitude, complaints, and joy to the best of her ability.
Now, what shall I give to me? I want to control what I eat, and find time to get in the workouts that I need and deserve. So what is stopping me? My new schedule? Facebook? Books? Life? Who really gets to decide these things? Some, me, like Facebook, some not me, like my new schedule. So, In an attempt to be the me I WANT to be, and my family deserves me to be I will do my best to give myself 12 gifts:
5. a new Routine
7. Permission to succeed
8. Joy for the journey
9. Laughter along the way
12. the knowledge that I am more than I was yesterday, and not yet all that I will be.
