The Final Countdown

What's great about today...

Today is New Year's Eve!  The last day of 2017!  Time to turn the page and see what's in store for 2018!  For some of us, we are glad this year is over.  For others, we wish we could stay for another year.  For me, I am glad to say good bye because I have had a good run at 2017. I am grateful for what it has offered and what it has taught me.  Was it always pleasant? No.  Did I have some come-aparts? Sure!  More than one? Maybe.... More than two?  That's really none of your business! 😆 I am happy to see this new year arrive and I am excited to see what will make it great.  I conveniently fall into the category of the new year's resolutioners.  I usually start out pretty strong and for the most part stay the course on again/off again for the better part of the year.  My resolutions are always the same, eat right, exercise more, lose weight, blah, blah, blah.  In fact, Jamie (the hubs) and I were on our way to the local YMCA for Colby's (the kid) basketball practice tonight and laughing about how full the workout room would be next week.  Then, like clockwork, in about 5 weeks, heck 5 days, it would be right back to normal and some days even vacant.  Why is this?  My favorite new phrase applies here...well, because.....LIFE!  Life happened and just like me, we say just forget it! But what if we didn't just forget it?  What if we just started back again or picked up where we left off? Sometimes, we set such a high standard and a perfectionism expectation that we will never measure up.  Wow! Did I just say that out loud?! I think I just preached to the choir.  This is totally me, all or nothing!  Y'all! Stop doing this, now!  We must give ourselves grace.  We must be patient with ourselves.  We are taught to have patience and forgive others.  Well, WE ARE OTHERS!  Let's do something great this year.  Find your resolution whether it be health, fitness, career, family, financial, or whatever.  Set a goal and go for it, but be patient with yourself.  If you get off track, just jump back on.  After all, tomorrow is another day!
