…are a great idea but put a lot of pressure on oneself. Whether you call them resolutions, goals, or “life plan”, it’s always a good idea to have a purpose and path. But they inevitably stress me out!
I ran out of time to put mine together this year. Of course, in my head were my typical thoughts of losing weight, getting healthy, saving money, and being kinder to friends, family and strangers. I think by 1 am on NYE I was pretty much off track on all of them. Oh well. There’s always a new day!
It’s a funny time of year. There is hope and inspiration in the air, kind of like back to school period. Summer is over, time to get it into gear, start anew. The same after the holidays. But just like with summer, it is a sad time, too. The end of the summer or Christmas holidays always brings with it a bit of whistful thinking. Back to regular routine, with more lbs and less money.
Thank you to all of you who came by for a visit during the holidays. We appreciate it! Whatever your goals are for 2014, we wish you a wonderful year ahead.
