Happy New Year

I don't usually makes resolutions... but this year I want to make some changes.  So, I am writing them down as a way to hold myself accountable.

1)  First, I want to "choose joy".  Not in a spiritual way, but as a way to look at life through a lens of happiness and well being.  I want to seek ways to bring peace and contentment into my life.  I want to focus on the good and the positive.   

2)  While my "emotional/mental self" is first on this list, my physical self is next.  It is time to stop wishing for better health, less weight, more stamina... I have the tools in my life to change the numbers on the scale, it's time to make a commitment to a healthier lifestyle.

3) It's time to get rid of "stuff".  We have too much.  That's all there is to it.  In its own way, it speaks of a fortunate lifestyle.  BUT... it is out of control.  I don't need "all of this" and, quite honesty, it has become somewhat of a burden.  Salvation Army and consignment shops's all coming your way!
