I do do New Year Resolutions...but they are living breathing subject to change things! They can be revised throughout the year to work with unexpected life occurrences and I'm never ashamed if they don't get completed...its life! But I believe that a New Year is a good time to review where I'm at, where I'm going, what needs to be done. It's also good to look at my plans every month, reflect and make changes as needed! No shame from me for this!
So for me I'm viewing 2016 as my year to focus my energy and get my life cleaned up- de clutter my home, clean out the spiritual cobwebs, clean up my eating and physical fitness! I will dance every day! I will read again! I will write! This is my year, I feel it inside! A little bubble of giddiness, excitement, that feeling that something exciting is about to happen! And the word escapes me! Lmao...I feel good things about to happen!
I'm starting my year with a 5K walk today! I am too cheap to pay for the actual race and medals don't do anything for me, so I am doing it virtually! My friend is running the 5K Resolution Run in Vancouver and I will do the same in Alberta to support her and to start my year right! Best foot forward! I will return to running this year, I used to enjoy running when I was living on the Israeli/Syrian border almost 20 years ago, I will search out those feelings this year and run again. I plan on one official 5K run in the fall!
I hope anyone reading this can also feel the positive vibes I feel about the next 365 days! I'm excited and happy! Life is great! 2016 I will make my happiness manifest! I am in control, I know me, I am taking the wheel and steering my ship! (All of that made me laugh!). But seriously, the things that made me unhappy over the last decade? I could've changed those things! I have control! Not my husband, not my friends, not my children, not my work...me! And I know what makes me happy so I have to make sure that I'm doing at least one thing every day that makes me happy! Dance, write, read...whatever! I control that, I control my happiness!
What makes you happy? Are you doing something everyday that promotes that happiness? 2016 - My Year of Happiness! It's already started....
