When 2010 began, I joked and told everyone that I wanted 2010 to be the year of no change. Well, my family wind up moving to another state and I changed careers. That serves me right for making such a claim when change is the only constant in life. I read in a magazine that rather than fearing the inevitable, we should embrace it and see how we can make the best of it. So, that is my mantra now - embrace what I cannot change and strive to seek happiness in the midst of it.
As the year ends, I am very grateful for family and friends. I'm also happy to report that I've met most of my 2010 goals. As for 2011, I'm looking forward to getting more involved with local not for profit charitable events and adopting more eco-friendly living concepts into my life.
I am focusing on building on past success. I went from being a spectator of sports to being active in many ways (getting a new bike, taking on spinning classes, gardening) and want to continue towards healthier living. My kids are there to cheer me on when I don't feel like doing anything after work. They grill me with, "did you exercise today?, did you eat healthy today?, etc." Makes me think do I sound like such a broken record to them?
Having ran my first race in 2010, my goal for 2011 is to run three. I might even throw in a bike/run race as well. Put a stake in the ground and list your goals.
Wishing you a happy and joyous 2011.
