Bringing in the new year with hope.

Thursday, January 02, 2014

I haven’t been one for New Year’s resolutions for a long time because of all of the years I’ve said, “I’m going to lose weight” and didn’t follow through with any long term results. This year is no exception, other than I am making several promises to myself. I promise to continue on with the journey I’ve been on and keep pushing the boundaries that have been in place all of my life. I promise myself time and energy spent on myself, knowing it’s worth it and that I can give more to others when I give more to myself. I also promise to work on being gentler on myself and my emotions in hopes that this gives me more peace.

2013 was for the most part a great year. But this past few months have been difficult and I’m finding it hard to want to celebrate a good year. So instead, I’m looking ahead and planning for 2014 to be MY year for peace, joy, accomplishments yet to be made and limits to be pushed. It’s not selfish, it’s about taking care of myself as it’s only me I have to depend on.

    In my experience, the best celebration of reaching your goals, is living with the goals reached.

    Nothing beats not carrying around another 126 pounds (in my case).

    Sounds like you figured it out.
