Will Work Hard to Make the 2nd Half of This Year Better than the First Half

Monday, June 30, 2014

Well, this year has been a humdinger, for sure. Not only the month of pneumonia (third time in 18 months), but the death of my dear friend a few weeks ago. And, of course, the bumps in the road that are also a part of my own life.

So, I'm working hard to build my immune system back up to its former healthy and robust state. Hoping that no one else dies this year. And will tackle these other challenges one at a time.

My dear cousin (in black top in SP photo) passed away four years ago on July 3. I can't believe it's been that long. Time is flying by so fast. We live in a supersonic age where everything happens at a rapid pace.

Tomorrow, I'm planning my second half of this year, as well as month of July. Wishing all a happy, healthy week.

    I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your friend.
As you know my son passed away on May 18th and it feels like a couple weeks ago. Not over 6 weeks!
Time is strange and I am trying my best to slow it down.
Remember when we were children and things were just so very different?

May your health improve, with this new month and second half of the year.
We need to come together and do our best, give each other support.
My prayers are with you, for your physical, emotional and spiritual health.

I'm so sorry that you've had a challenging first half of the year. I pray that the second half, will be filled with NSVs and the weight loss that you've allotted to lose for that time. Now, I'm not able to forget the inches, as you'll be losing those, too!

Just grab the gusto, when you can and HANG ON!!!

Be blessed,

    We all experience those bumps occasionally. They help make life more interesting.

    You certainly have had some knock downs haven't you? There is no guarantee when we embark on this healthy path that something unfortunately will not happen. Sometimes it hits us when we are barely upright, sometimes it knocks us down on our butts when we are standing tall and sometimes it trips us and lands us flat on our face.

It is unrealistic and a grievous error to think life is rosy and wonderful and things will be perfect and filled with happy-happy. Committing to self-improvement doesn't change a thing nor magically make us happier. But it IS the best defense against self-abuse.

Here's to a successful no matter what July and last half of 2014. emoticon
