NEW YEAR, NEW YOU
On a more personal level, 2016 was not a terrible year for my family and myself. We have had our ups and downs, don't get me wrong. Matt still has a great job, I had a total of 6 scans last year and I was stable with no signs of progression in all of them, we moved to North Carolina, and have been able to celebrate many things along the way. Unfortunately, we lost the kid's grandmother, Matt's mom this year. That was a terrible loss. We were all so close and I just thank God that we were able to live so close to her, and spend so much time with her. She will be truly missed the rest of our lives.
On to 2017... Do any of you have New Year's resolutions? The new year is always a great time to reinvent yourself. All those items that you wish you could do or learn, -Well, this is the year! All of the things you wish you could change about yourself, -Well, this is the year! I am the same way, but this year I am going to look at it differently. I am always the kind of person that puts so much pressure on myself, that I end up not doing anything. So this year, my biggest resolution is to make goals, not resolutions. Goals, things that I would like to work on to make myself better or the best that I could be - THIS year. Hopefully better than last year. Whatever that better may be. Do I have to start January 1st? No, I don't think so. Just as long as I start.
I am also such a list maker. I have lists for EVERYTHING! I really think for me, seeing my goals on paper really helps me keep track and check myself every so often.
HEALTHY HEALTHY HEALTHY
1. Get back on track with my health--
moderation is the key except with
JUICE and VEGGIES and lets not forget Exercise.
2. Painting - sometimes I feel a little strange even calling myself a painter still, because I have not done it in so long! Maybe by the end of the year I could even find somewhere to display my work...if it is any good.
3. Stay focused on this blog--stop worrying what it should be, and just turn it into what I want it to be.
4. Find my Patience!!!
5. Live more In the moment and play.
SO, there you have it. This is how I plan to better myself this year. I hope these goals will be positive for not only myself but my entire family this year.
