Today I am 33. I have never felt this sure of myself, confident or comfortable in my skin. I go forward in this world knowing the things I believe in have been evaluated as my own ideals, and not because that was just the way I was taught. I am raising children, with my husband, whom I chose, and we are raising them with our ideals. We have a strong foundation, spiritually, financially, mentally, emotionally and physically. I feel grateful. I see the beauty each day. I am happy.
As I embark on this exciting year, I pause to enjoy this day. I pause to honor the place where I am. I pause to celebrate me!
Goal setting is very important. "If you aim at nothing you will hit it every time".
This year I want to focus on being an admirable person. It isn't about the outside looking in, but more about me making choices in everything that I can be proud of, and wouldn't be embarrassed about if someone knew. My cookie binge eating around the holidays, not admirable! My tendency to be a distracted driver (texting, entering things on my to do list, in my calendar, etc), is REALLY not admirable. My strong work ethic, or extreme honesty? Admirable! It is about me owning every decision and action and being able to be proud. I have two sets of small eyes that watch everything I do, and hear everything I say. What do I want them to see? Hear? What kind of example do I want to set for them?
This year I will not text and drive. This year I will read at least 12 books. This year I will be punctual. This year I will continue to work towards my weight goal. This year I will be a admirable woman!
