A New Year, A New Attitude
Tuesday, January 01, 2013
The holidays have come an gone for another year. I have one more pair of slippers to knit and then I will start crocheting my annual flock of jellybean ducks for Easter.
Christmas was a quiet affair. My husband went to his parents house for their Christmas Eve celebration while I stayed here watching holiday movies with my parents. Next year he wants to go to Michigan for Christmas. That would be nice. Christmas just isn't Christmas without the candlelight service at my home church on Christmas Eve. I told him I want to move back to Michigan and I guess that's his compromise.
Anyway, I reached my goal of 12,000 fitness minutes for 2012. Not too bad since I didn't join SparkPeople until the last week of April. I won't meet the weight goal set for me back then, but that's ok. I still made a lot of changes and improvements. Right now I need to work on focusing on what I have instead of what I want. I need to find happiness where I am instead of holding out for things to be different. I have so much, food, shelter, a steady job, a husband, two great cats, and a healthier body. Yes, I want a house instead of an apartment, to lose weight, and a baby. There is no reason I won't get those things. It may take time and be harder than I like, but they are attainable. I just need to find happiness in what I have today while working for tomorrow. It's so easy to focus on what you don't have that you forget to enjoy life. That is my goal. To take time to find happiness in everyday. It used to be natural for me, but somewhere along the way I lost it. Time to find it again.
Happy New Year! Here's to new beginnings.
