As the year grows to its end, I am thinking of all sorts of things.
The last year and a half have been more than challenging personally, not only for myself, but for my husband also. I have hopes and wishes for this man I’ve been with since July of 1976 and married to for almost 32 years now, but when you get right down to it, I can only work on my own hopes and wishes. He has to take care of himself, so to speak. So do I. I plan to do just that this coming year. I plan to become the person I was meant to be. It’s not too late.
I plan to get healthy, once and for all. I’m too young (at days shy of 50) to feel this damn old. The reason for me feeling old is my physical condition. To say that it’s “poor” would be an understatement. I don’t exercise and I don’t eat correctly, whatever that is. Over the coming year, I plan to start doing both of these things, slowly but surely. I may even start another blog just about my health goals. If I do, I’ll let you know. Getting healthy has been a goal of mine for many years now, but I swear this is the last year that I’m going to end the year weighing more than when I started it. I heard Dr. Phil (I think) say one time that you will not weigh the same the next year as you did this year. You will either weigh more or less. I do believe he’s right.
I will continue to grow creatively. I’ve done some of this in 2009 and I cannot tell you the difference it has made in my daily life. I feel like a new person! I feel like I’m starting to become the person I was meant to be. I feel that it literally saved me these last few months. I must continue on this journey. There is no option. It’s like needing to breathe. My only regret is that it’s taken me so long to start this journey in such seriousness and enjoyment. I’ve been on the path for many years, but I’m making progress now. Thank You Lord for that.
