By now, the brilliance of your shiny new resolution for 2016 may be fading. At the first of the year, I was too busy to be formulating my plan for self-betterment in the New Year. I had a house load of kids, meals, birthdays, funerals, and general chaos that I was swimming through. Now, on the other side, I am ready to commit to some good stuff.
So here is my list for 2016:
Weight management – Being model skinny has definitely been checked off of my list, but keeping myself well – fed while maintaining my ability to fit into a single airplane seat without the extension seat belt seems to be a reasonable goal. I got this.
Worry Less – If fretting were an Olympic sport, I would sweep the competition. It seems I always have tomorrow and yesterday on my mind, when today is pretty darn good. Having faith that all will be well is not my usual habit, so I have some work to do in this arena. Performing 30 minutes of aerobic exercise a day also helps wear out all that extra anxiety. And prayer. More prayer in 2016.
Write more – My college roomie is hunkered down in a cabin in New Hampshire, writing her first novel. She hasn’t seen anyone in 3 days, as of this morning. I am going to stay in closer touch with her (as our relationship has always be predicated on how much we can annoy the other one during serious endeavors.) while I write my own prose here at the dining room table in Texas. She inspires me. And, I need a new camera. If you noticed that my writing stopped for a while, FYI my camera busted during high retail season at the store. Looking at a nice, new used camera body today. And, I started sketching out a baking book this morning.
This year promises so much, and I am ready to accept whatever is sent my way.
