We are 1 week past the new year here. Depending on what you started, finished, took on or resolved you may already be able to see some changes.
This morning I woke up and did my Yoga for the 8th day in a row. I weighed and measured myself. We will keep those numbers private, but let’s just say that they are just as they should be.
After I dropped my youngest off at school, I decided to head to the rec center. We have a family pass and I hardly ever think to use it. This morning, I thought I am not subbing today, why don’t I just go and use the track? Well I walked around that track for nearly an hour, over 4 miles. LOL, yes I walk pretty fast. I listened to a whole Podcast and just smiled the whole time.
Here I am 1 week in and I haven’t given up on anything yet. That is the Grace! My word for this year. In just 8 days, I have already faltered. It would’ve been easy to be like, well….there goes that. I don’t plan on doing that this year though. I am going to give myself grace when I mess up, or when I take one misstep. Then I will just pickup and start from there.
It should also be noted that I am on book 6 for the year already. Man, do I really dive head first into books at the beginning of each year. I sure do hope that I will keep up with this. On my way home from the rec center I swung by the library. I checked out 3 books. I also have 3 books on my bookshelf that I need to read. I plan to read all of them before the 3 from the library are due. Now, I am just adding other books that I would like to read to my Amazon cart. OOOOH, that reminds me that Soulless is on it’s way to be delivered by Amazon today. Make that 7 books total that need to read.
I have written in my gratitude journal every single day. I am 8 days into my Bible in a Year study plan! I have been blogging, doing yoga every day and writing in my prayer journal every day. I accomplish more in the first hour I am awake then I think some people might in an entire 24 hours. It is what fuels me.
This is the year that I turn 40. I am not nervous, anxious or terrified of it. I am so excited! I am embracing it. I love who I am and look forward to everything that I will accomplish in the next 7 months before my birthday, but also how much I will do after that.
