I received this in my email this morning:
Prompt: One Word. Encapsulate the year 2010 in one word. Explain why you’re choosing that word. Now, imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2011 for you?
I had an early morning drive out to St. Peters this morning so I racked my brain the whole time. I reflected on the past year, and thought about what I was focused on.
That’s really what my year boils down to. I started a serious workout regimen, lifting weights, running, and more. I became very focused on my diet, making sure I was using proper serving sizes and providing good nutrition for myself. Why? Yes, of course, to look good, but as the months went by, primarily to feel good, to have energy, to be in good health. And that’s where I am. I feel better than I ever have!
So what do I want next year? I know my answer, but I worry it’s totally clichéd (blogging itself is clichéd, so I don’t know why this concerns me.)
I AM happy now. But I want to maintain that happiness throughout the year. Yes, I know there are life events that are out of my control.
My response and reaction to those events is under my control.
And I want to choose to be happy.
