This is on my fridge.
I spent the last day of 2011 this way--
Morning: lot's of time spent on a heating pad, prayer, yoga, music, reading, journaling, stretching, and saying ouch and limping around a good bit. I woke up with an unexplained hip injury--maybe the aliens abducted me last night and lost the tractor beam for a moment..HA
Day. Visiting with a friend, listening, walking in a park but only a short distance, vowing to live a life of more purpose and health because I ran around this park last year. Shopping and then lunch with a friend.
Afternoon. A healthy dose of Tylenol arthritis-wow much better. A nap. Snuggles with Mr Kitteh and my dogs.
Evening: cleaning the kitchen, doing laundry, writing a blog and greeting family and friends on Facebook. A healthy dinner, watching tv and or movie in pjs. Before or at midnight there will be a kiss and a prayer and maybe some Apple cider.
The last day of 2011 was random and kind of an amalgam of 2011 as a whole.
But this is where the hope for 2012 comes in. I didn't binge today. I didn't over eat or obsess about food. I didn't stare at tv . I didn't count calories today but I also wasn't out of control. I listened and gave support to a friend. I exercised my body even though I didn't hit a calorie burn or exceed at a challenge. I talked and asked for support from a friend. I would have liked to spent some of my time differently. And that brings me to 2012.
I'm just grateful for what I have and my hopes are to be a better steward of my life , my health, my gifts. I know that I want my life to have more purpose, peace, better health, hope, joy, self -honesty, self care, and caring for others in a healthy way.
