Many make New years resolutions but the last several years I have not. Actually, I haven't done too much in the way of goal setting period. Sure, I've made some 'tenative' attempts, taken on some challenges, and accomplished a few that I personally created. I grasp that since I truly want things to be better than they ever have been, I get to do new, fun, exciting things that I haven't before--starting with my own style of planning! I could talk on end about the methods I've tried, the plans I've made, the reasons I didn't follow through, but I won't. For what? Meh, I could list the reasons why too:), but I won't. Instead, I'm taking a brand new approach for my brand new life. It's scary because it's unfamiliar but that means there are also no past memories of unsuccessful attempts. It's exciting because it's new! And it's fulfilling because it forces me to be creative in my pursuits and decisions. It! :) For so long I've merely existed and trudged through life without regularly doing things that I wanted to or enjoyed, or even trying too many new things. So now I'm going out of my comfort zone to grow and flourish! Skating, here I come! Swimming, you're up next. Rock climbing and hiking, buckle it up I'm on my way! I even want to go indoor skydiving! I'm 22lbs away from their max limit and I'm determined to qualify on or before the end of this Quarter! I've also set quarter weight shed goals and promise to do one thing each week that is picture worthy (not including my pics of food I make:). I want to have fun! I miss the wild child fun that I used to have and I've woken up to realize that all I have to do is go out my thoughts and have it!

    I always like your posts on the Community Feed - lively, fun, upbeat, helpful. And I like what you say in this blog. I feel ambivalent about "goal setting" - for me, there's something mechanical about it & seems I set myself up for disappointment when I go that way. What seems to work lately for me is seeing a path open up before me, and deciding to follow it for a while. End up in some fascinating places that way! You're right about that inner wild child, too, I think - let that kid out to play! I'm trying to do that too. Thank you for your exuberance!
