On New Year’s Eve my son, John, got married to Alicia. It was a beautiful evening for a magical wedding. It was held in Peoria, Arizona at the bride’s brother’s house. Ceremony at sunset, Chinese food buffet, hot chocolate bar, blankets to take the chill off, fireworks to celebrate, then dancing with family and friends. The bride and groom are starting 2024 with a new beginning.
Every day is a new beginning. We start each day with the habits we drag along, sometimes we change them up. Since I started the year on vacation, my habits have been muddled. Now that I am home, I am getting back in the swing of things. As I look at my goals for this year, I also review my habits. Will my current habits get me where I want to be?
This year I am focusing on health. I take my good health for granted. I rarely get sick, however there are a few things that I want to change. I’m not happy with my weight, my flexibility is getting limited and my strength has diminished. Old age is creeping in and throwing me challenges. There is definitely room for improvement in my health habits.
I have two obstacles, the first is making time and sticking to it. I want to make time to learn more and time to do more physically. The second and most important is having the right mindset. I get so discouraged not seeing immediate results. It is hard to keep restarting so many times.
Today I accept the challenge of a new beginning for my mind and body when it comes to health.
Happy New Year!
