Meetings, family, work, golf, volunteer work, rush here and rush there but what about me and where am I going in 5784? Now is the time for all of us to take a deep breath and look back on 5783 and define what we want out of the New Year. What do we all want to do differently?
I would probably be fooling myself if I asked for a slower pace because I don’t think that is realistic for me. However, I think about the 8 books stacked on my nightstand I have yet to read or how special an extra walk or bike ride would be with Robert. I know I would enjoy both of those including one extra round of golf every month. My dad would be thrilled if I would think about finding an extra 15 minutes for the elliptical! Is it possible? Of course, all of this is possible if I tell myself it is up to me and no one else. In order for me to have hope of spending extra time with my loved ones or some time exercising I must believe in change.
As I look back on the year, I count my blessings for being surrounded by a loved one and having the opportunity to help others while having the best friends one can wish for! As I reflect on what I want for the coming year there isn’t much I would change but rather ask myself, “Am I doing everything possible to live a healthy life so I can enjoy all the good fortunes I am blessed with?’. So, I guess that means a bit more exercise, a few less carbs and some time to reflect if I want to continue to enjoy life. Let’s all take charge of our own destiny and be our own change agent. We can do it in 5784!
