With our son and his family so far away, and the absence of my sister-in-law, who passed away last June, we had a “different” Christmas this year. Nonetheless, we shared many happy times with the rest of the family and our good friends.
The Christmas tree came down today and I have definite “goals” for the New Year.
A … is for Annual January Diet – I aim to make it less of a “flash in the pan” and more of permanent part of my life
B … is for Book. Yes, I have finished, and it will be released in just a few months
C … is for Canada. Jorge and I had such a great time last fall that I fully intend to go back this year
D … is for Driving. I vow to not let the buses and motorcycles spike my blood pressure every time I get behind the wheel
E … is for Exercise – same aim as for the letter A
F … is for Family and Friends. Where would I be without them? I want to see more of those I love and less of my computer
G … is for Grocery Shopping. I need to be a more conscientious food shopper
H … is for Head-in-the-Sand. I need to make each day count, not make excuses
I … is for Information. I am joining a discussion group where I will learn more about current events, literature and other topics I should know more about
J … is for Joy. I need to keep in mind that this is my main pursuit – and pass it on.
Writing down these ten goals helps me to reconfirm their importance in my life. How about you?
