I made a change to my thought process regarding the oncoming new year. I decided that instead of focusing on all of the things I hope to accomplish in the new year, I will focus on all of the things I DID accomplish in the old one. Its funny how changing ones viewpoint on something so seemingly small causes massive positive repercussions throughout my world.
No, I did not lose all my weight and get in shape.
But I did:
|*||become a Paramedic|
|*||become a homeowner|
|*||go to Italy with my mom – a dream we’ve had for 10 years.|
|*||move to Atlanta|
|*||get a puppy|
|*||get egg-layer chickens|
|*||raise, and process, meat chickens. From day old chick to the roasting pan. Delicious, and a joy.|
|*||become a much happier, healthier, positive person|
|*||enjoy a blossoming of my relationship with my husband. We are closer now than ever before in our 15 year history.|
|*||meet some incredible people that I am proud to call friends, and reconnect with some friends that I hadn’t seen in well over a decade.|
And I didn’t completely miss my goal…my weigh in on Friday put me down almost eleven pounds, and my fitness level is much better than it was. I am doing it, and that’s what matters.
So this year I’ve decided to make one huge goal for myself, one that is shared by my husband and that will have a ripple effect thoughout our lives.
My plan is to pay off our debts…everything except the mortgage.
And I even have a plan B. If it takes two years, I will be fine with that, but we are going to do everything in our power to get it done in one.
Its going to be a wonderful year.
