New Years quotes:
For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice. ~T.S. Eliot
Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one. ~Brad Paisley
We spend January 1st walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives...not looking for flaws, but for potential. ~Ellen Goodman
Do you make New Year's resolutions? I do not; stopped doing that long ago because every year my resolutions would be a distant memory by April.
Life doesn't begin January 1st, or when we lose X number of pounds, or when the kids get a little older and on and on and on. Life is happening right now and we need to take care of ourselves right now.
I read an interesting blog by Gretchen Rubin. She has "identified one idea, summarized in just one word, as an overarching theme for the entire year."
Her theme for 2015 was UPGRADE. She wanted to take several areas of her life to the next level. She wrote a book and released a popular podcast.
She has heard from people with their themes for the new year...Adventure, Renew, Energize, Bestow, Grace, Travel, Free, Rest, Finish.
So I think my theme for 2016 will be FORWARD. I've achieved several fitness goals so I want to keep moving forward, never slip back in my tv-watching-while-snacking ways again. I also want to stop looking back and dwelling on negative moments, live in the now and keep moving forward
Just like in the movie Santa Claus Is Coming to Town.....
"put one foot in front of the other and soon you'll be walkin cross the floor,
put one foot in front of the other, and soon you'll be walkin out the door.
You never will get where you're going
If ya never get up on your feet.
Come on, there's a good tail wind blowin'
A fast walking man is hard to beat."
Happy New Year! Thank you all for your inspiration and support this year!
