It’s amazing how another year has flown by. The year was full of the usual ups and downs but there was always a valuable lesson to be learned.
I try my best not to look back at the negative stuff and look forward to what’s to come!
So instead of telling you all about the challenges and sad events, I thought I’d share a personal positive wish this year for you and me.
My wish is that everyday we get healthier.
Physically, emotionally, and mentally.
Making part of our everyday life a combination of physical activity, positive connections with others, and constant learning.
And I think a good place to start is with giving of ourselves.
I truly believe by giving of ourselves we can’t help but want to be our best.
Here’s to an incredible 2017 for us all!
Keeping it real...some thing that I have been trying to do lately is that. Trying to find a way to still be myself when nothing is about me anymore. Struggles are so great for everyone and I am sure you have a long list as well. Not everyone is going to have the same challenges in life and sometimes the things that bother us the most are things that do not show up in our photo's. Invisible to others but they continue to eat at our souls until we have resolved them. So this is me , on a day that was nice. It is easy to post a photo after we have done our hair and picked out the perfect clothes, but on this day I did none of the above. I don't live near the ocean. I live on a small street in a small town in Missouri. In a small house. So my outlook is starting to change. Keeping it real. Wearing my sweatpants when I want. Brushing my hair less, maybe even cleaning less. Keeping it all together on the inside is much easier for me when I am not trying to keep it all together on the outside. I love gardening and am going to make this the best season ever, all while making a mess, lol. I read once, that one of your goals should be that when you have people over to your house, they should leave feeling better about themselves, not feeling better about you. And that totally meant why do I spend 4 hours cleaning when I know someone is coming by for 5 minutes? I must be crazy. So here I go, off to work and all the while ...keeping it so real people will be wondering all day what the heck is wrong with me :) and if your feeling the same way.... take the challenge and start just being you :)
