It is a new year. A new year to start my resolutions….again…
Lose 10 lbs, start running again….eat healthier….blah, blah, blah.
I have been making those same resolutions for 30 years or more, with some success…more or less.
But this year I have different resolutions. Not necessary resolutions, but changes. Changes I think I can keep with some kind of consistency.
For the last several years, I have had a word for the coming year. Last year it was Courage. I needed a lot of courage to get through the things that were thrown at me. I needed courage to stay strong, true to myself and learn to trust, believe and let go.
and I made it through and for that I am GRATEFUL. That is my word for the year…Grateful. Grateful that I came through the inane maze without going crazy. Grateful that my faith helped me believe in the goodness of people, believe in myself and others. To know that the world is full of kindness and graciousness … Beauty and bravery.
I still need to lose 10 lbs, start running or at least exercise more, eat more healthy, etc. etc. But more importantly, I want to be in the moment, to REALLY pay attention to the small, beautiful things around me. Slow down, stay true to myself and not get so twisted with stupid stuff that doesn’t really matter in the long run.
I will take a lesson from my cows. Enjoy the day, eat well, sleep well and be friendly with those around me.
I am excited about 2014. Good things are going to happen.
Thanks for stopping by!
