Happy New Year! I have read some great ideas on goals for the New Year, such as writing down your new year goals and then reading them at the end of the year. I just re-read my blog from New Year’s last year and feel like I did meet those general goals. Which were, being a better parent by recognizing and allowing my children to be responsible for themselves. Eating well and exercising and making the most out of work.
We must go forth and live life! In the last month or so I recognize that it doesn’t seem that I have that enthusiasm I did last year. Need to bring that back! There are so many things to be thankful for and to look forward to. Maybe it’s just the gray skies and dark days of winter, being a little too merry with food and not being able to play tennis as much.
Even though 2016 was a year full of very cool things, I would like to explore more. Not necessarily to top the things that have been done, just to have new experiences.
So this year, new goals are :
Complete the MS150 (bike from Houston to Austin)
Go see something naturally beautiful (ideas: Grand Canyon, Big Bend, still want to see Hamilton Pool).
Stay on track with healthy lifestyle (maintain healthy weight and activity level – with fitness tracker)
Definitely want to keep the goals simple and I think there are some specifics there to keep on track. Some less specific goals, remain teachable, be mindful and present. The less specific goals really help with the day to day. And of course the BIGGEST one, let go and let God. I never forget who is in control and continually pray and walk the path with God. There wouldn’t be light on those dark days without God to help you along the way.
Wishing you the best this New Year!
