A New Year!

Happy New Year!!
I just took a minute to re-read the *motivational* quotes I have on my page, and decided I LOVE them ALL!
As another year begins, and new goals are set and there's that feeling of a lovely, clean slate, here they are... to remind ME of what I want my life to reflect in the coming year:


The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live.

- Flora Whittemore, author

It's your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.

Please untie the knots
that are in my mind,
my heart, and my life.
Remove the have nots
the can nots and the do nots
that I have in my mind.

Erase the will nots,
may nots,
might nots that may find
a home in my heart.

Release me from the could nots,
would nots, and
should nots that obstruct
my life, happiness,
good health, desires, and goals.

And, most of all,
I ask that, if I cannot do it myself,
you remove from my mind,
my heart, and my life all of the
'am nots' that I have allowed to hold me back,
especially the thought
that I am not good enough.

And here's wishing anyone who is reading this blog much success and fulfillment in the coming year! Let's keep sparking and keep our commitments to our health front and center in each day of the coming year. As I like to remind myself often - it's those small, consistent, correct choices, made day in and day out, that give us the results we are looking for!

    I hear you on #2 - its what I have been trying to focus on. Each of us has our own journey, and we can not measure our progress against anyone other than ourselves.

    The start of the purging my husband and I did at the end of 2012 is helping me to better focus on what I need to do for 2013. I want this and every day forward to be about more smiles, laughter, friends and family.

    When I do start cleaning/purging, I keep repeating - every things helps. It doesn't matter if its 1 piece of paper shredded/tossed/filed. Its still 1 more thing done. Just like every Zumba class is a step in the right direction. The cookie I had earlier, well, at least it was only 1!

    Happy New Year!!! Together with the rest of our SP Ohana, we'll make 2013 great!
