There's music in the air... what's your tune?
Whether you live alone or in a family unit, you can choose, as an individual, how you will interact with those with whom you have contact. The power of choice is a privilege that humankind has, even in the most troubling circumstances.
In the lifestyle / wellness goals, I shift my focus at this time of year, because I ask myself to do things beyond my comfort level - in time, in the stress of the unknown, in responding to others who are part of a shared unknown. (Yes, this description is cryptic, but just accept that for what it is.) So I don't aim for weight loss - no expectations of improved body composition. Instead I aim to stay true to myself, to focus on sustaining the basics of day-to-day. And with that, that is enough.
The tune I sing is: I accept who / what I am today, without the expectation for drastic change. I will forgive more than I ask to be forgiven, because I will choose to overlook minor (and even, major) oversights and indignities.
The tune I sing brings happiness and light to a greater good. And I spend nine weeks each year, at this time of year, to achieve that better world for those around me.
To those of you who can still re-double your efforts to sustain and maintain your progress to goals, I congratulate you, and wish you the best. I will maintain as best as I know and rejoin you in with more focus on my own goals at a time in the near future.
What's y o u r tune? There's music in the air!
