Happy New Year
New Year again. A fresh start. Clean slate. Another chance to write a story. Hopefully a better story than what we wrote in 2017.
As this year begins, I am hopeful. Hopeful that I can have a fresh slate to do better by me. I need to look out for me. To take care of me. It’s not about being selfish. I need to be healthy to take care of others. I cannot be running out of steam. Others are relying on me.
Besides that I still want to do so many things, to see many places and experience life. In order to accomplish that, I have to be in good physical form.
I have to resist the temptation of eating junk food; of eating when not hungry; of eating when bored.
I need to read more, find more activities that engage both the mind and the body.
I need to start acting like a grown-up.
I also must start writing again. Here. Not in my other blogs where I write about my travels and adventures. Here, where I write about feelings and thoughts.
Here’s to a kinder version of ourselves in 2018.
