February 29 –Happy Leap Year Day!
A good opportunity to check in on those New Year’s Resolutions.
My theme for the year is: “Welcome every morning with a smile. Look on the new day as another special gift from your Creator, another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday. Be a self-starter. Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action that is certain to echo through your entire day. Today will never happen again. Don’t waste it with a false start or no start at all. You were not born to fail.”
I like that! I’ve been succeeding at waking up with a smile or at least not a groan as I shut the alarm clock…I’ve also been successful at keeping up with my blogs, (this one and my blog on media), exercising, eating well, taking my vitamins, nurturing friendships, visiting family and writing at least 1 letter each week.
I still need to work on living in the present moment. I’m pretty good about not dwelling on the past, but I can still use some work on not worrying about the future! Also I see that I set a resolution to run the Seacoast Race Series again this year. Funny just this morning I said to myself, “no, I don’t think I’ll run the series this year, there is too much pressure”–good thing I made a resolution. Now I will do it!! The first race is in May so it’s also good thing I started running again (this morning as a matter of fact. I was running when I contemplated not racing this summer!)
Lastly, I find that breaking one or two of the resolutions into Monthly action items helps he achieve them so here are March’s goals:
- Run at least twice a week
- Visit my friends and family in Virginia
- Cut out Cow’s Milk from diet
