OK, We're half-way through the year. I know, it's flying by me too. Assessing this morning and I can see I'm making a little progress with some of my New Year's Resolutions. One thing about getting older is you're more honest with yourself... and more forgiving! Even though I pledged to eat healthier, that doesn't mean Popsicles and ice cream sandwiches aren't in the freezer... for the GRANDkids, you know! And exercise happens in a different form now, summer walks and swimming in the lake... just not on the treadmill. The treadmill is for snowy days when I'm housebound. Rather than beat myself up for the things I've not accomplished, I like to focus on the stuff that I see as important. From Gretchen Rubin's Happiness Project, the tools I need to make it work are right in my "toolbox."
A day, a month, then another year slips away from us. The video shows just how it happens and we are so busy "living life" that we forget to enjoy life. Could it be as simple as just making up your mind to be happy? A bad childhood, a failed marriage or a broken relationship is our past, not our future. Everyday is a chance to make happiness happen!
