~Self care and to not feel selfish or guilty about it. That has always been a struggle for me. But I need to be a "better" me in order to be a better mom, friend, daughter. So my spiritual list includes: therapy, al-anon, yoga/meditation, journaling, reading, volunteering. My goal is to find my focus again and to gain balance in my life.
~The old standby of losing weight (LOL), but with more of an aspect of getting healthy. My family history includes high blood pressure, heart disease and obesity. I have an uphill battle that I need to win. So I am going to really work on being active this year. I am planning on at least 2 Half Marathons in May and September, with a few 5K/10Ks sprinkled throughout as well. I would like to lose about 50 lbs but as long as I am on the right track, I won't sweat the numbers on the scale.
~Make our house a home. No more unfinished projects, no more unpainted walls, no more hesitation on picking a design or style or piece of furniture. I don't want to spend years unpacking and still not feeling like we are here to stay. I have a long list of things to do around the house and I plan to start this month.
~As I mentioned in the prior post, I am going to live in the moment. I am trying to convey this to my girls as well, especially Ava. She has come to me a few times lately talking about not wanting to grow up or for me to grow old. We have been talking about treating life as an adventure, every day. We both love the movie Up, so we relate it to the movie. I told her that we could help each other. So maybe that will work for both of us.
I have a few more on my list, but I also don't want to tempt failure. I will pick my main priorities and work those well.
Good luck to you on your goals for 2010! :)
