My 5 year self
Sunday, January 27, 2013
So I'm going with the blog to myself in 2018. Hopefully it will be interesting to come back and read this. Maybe not since it will be pretty general. I would never had planned the life I have now so I don't have a lot of specifics. Sometimes I think that is great because life surprises are fun and then sometimes its not great because without a specific goal you could get lost.
First in 5 years, I will be successfully maintaining my goal weight for the past 4 years. I will be fit, healthy and strong. Flexible would be nice. I would also like to be running under a 10 min/mile. I have the tools to make this possible and it just me putting them into action.
My son will be happy, healthy and finishing his last year in elementary school. Work in progress, but he is pretty great and the better person that i am, the better off he will be.
I will be working a job that I enjoy and find rewarding and can still pay the bills. I'm not sure what this job would be and this is where I struggle the most at the moment. Trying to find a sense of purpose for myself.
If I am in a happy and healthy relationship, that would be an added bonus.
Last, but not least and the thing that weighs most heavily on my mind and heart is that I hope that my Mom is here to see these things. She was diagnosed with lung cancer the Friday before Thanksgiving. Her health is not good and I am not sure how much her body and will can take. She is a strong lady, but has had a very hard year that has taken its toll. I can see myself in her and know that I have to be healthier. I have a small sized family and she is the center and glue. Losing her would irreparably change my family.
Resounding theme is happy and healthy - Each day is a gift and I need to make those choices so I can live the life I want.
