2013 brought many good times and new beginnings and some endings. But three things I said I was going to do to live my life differently this past year were:
1. Live more with grace. In other words, I wasn’t going to try and control many things in my life that I probably couldn’t control anyway. I go with the flow more and I don’t worry as much as I used to.
2. I wanted to have fun and that I did. I have a fun job and I have friends in my life that simply want to have fun too. I went to Sedona in October with two dear friends and I traveled to Louisiana to celebrate my nephew’s wedding. This was more family time which is always fun!
3. I live life easy. If it seems too hard or if there are resistances, then I don’t do it or I go a different direction. Easy and breezy is how I live my life. I figure that if it is hard or there are resistances then I’m not meant to go that way. (There is the old grace thing again.)
So I’m very proud of myself incorporating these three principles into my life which has brought more happiness and joy in my life.
As for 2014, a friend of mine said he was “turning a new leaf” and I thought about what I would do to improve my life this next year. Things are going pretty good and I am really happy with my job and my personal life. I could incorporate more healthy habits which is always a challenge for me but I see me moving in this direction. I was really sick before Christmas and now that I am well, I don’t want to go back to that place. I’m going to make short trips around Colorado and I’m going to write my book.
I hope to have even more fun and to bring more happiness into my life in 2014. What about you? How are you going to “turn a new leaf” this year? Be sure to have fun doing it.
All is well, right?
