Every end is a new beginning.
I love this idea. It is incredibly timely since it is the beginning of a new year for me and my family. I also love the repeating feeling I can find in this new year, the regular new year, the first of a month and honestly how Monday's feel. I love starting fresh, I love starting anew, but I wish I could see every day that way. To be more forgiving of myself and others and be able to wake up and feel like it is a new day and I can make it great. I am still locked on larger blocks of time like weeks, months and years. So that I can regain some persepective I am going to recap and a few things...it helps me if I write things down.
Since last Rosh Hashanah
- I have mostly kept all my weight off (within 3-5lbs of my 40lb weight loss)
- I PR'd my 5K, 10K, 1/2 marathon and marathon times
- I was promoted at work
- My daughter started daycare and she is learning so much
- My son advanced to pre-K as a 3 year old
- My husband was elected to a board of directors, did I mention he is not very social?
- I lost my 18 year old cousin to cancer
- I lost my last living grandparent
- We took our first family vacation
- I just recently turned a corner with some family members I was having ups and downs with, such a relief and so much more fun
- My husband and I made our first large financial pledge to a charitable cause (we really felt like grown ups)
As a fresh start to this blog, my "Why I Kick A$$" section will now be updated to "The Big Picture" The Big Picture will give me the opportunity to recover from the complaining I am sure to continue to do in my daily postings, LOL. I may through in a few "Why I Kick A$$" things every now and then as needed, but I would like to be more big picture oriented this year.
The Big Picture: My husband and I held hands and giggled like teenagers inappropriately at religious services last night. We weren't disruptive, but I love that we still enjoy each others company in a youthful way.
- For new beginnings
- For new bras
- For a weekend away that starts tomorrow
