as I write this
my perspective is sharp,
my friend died a few days ago and I am attending her funeral today.
I am re-reminded that life is short..
there are no guarantees,
but how we live belongs to us..
so with that in mind..
*make time daily for my Lord.
*eat healthy(ier)- I am pretty healthy. BUT shall tweak it.
*exercise 3 times a week- not lofty, but doable.
*help my children help me- teach them to be more apart of our team.
*make time for family exercise 3 times a week- again, doable.
*spend quality family time daily in some form-even dinner as a family works.
*make an effort to spend time with friends new and old- I can enjoy my time alone TOO much.
*reconnect with the children of a friend who passed away 4 years ago- I lost touch 21/2 years ago, time to change that.
*go on a date- not desperate for this one:) but will set the goal to stop running from it and instead be OK if it happens.
*enroll in college come fall.
*get a new (or new to me) car.
*live with integrity.
*live with grace.
*set an example of 'classy' womanhood to my children.
*Be someone people are better off for knowing.
*strive to stay passionate and purposeful about those things that matter to me.
*stand for what matters.
*let go what does not.
I have learnt that simple is better,
that I don't want to reinvent myself every year,
instead I would like to tweak who I already am.
I would like to continue to move forward,
remain healthy inside and out,
and continue to maintain my family unit.
I know I cannot predict what shall come,
nor can I control what shall not!
So, simply and steadily
I keep pressing on..
one day, one step, one year at a time.
