Once the holiday decorations are put away and all of the misfits are returned— things start to go back to normal for many of us. I for one, am looking forward to- NOT seeing holiday cookies and chocolates for another year! I think my hips will be equally as happy once the withdrawals are over.
It's time to start thinking about the year ahead. Time to plan out my calendar and start a fresh, clean slate! Each year I try to set a goal for myself, for example, one year I vowed to visit as many National Parks and hike as many trails in each park as possible. I filled a walking cane with hiking metals from each of the NP's that I visited.
Another year, my goal was to go on as many cruises as I could with my sister-we did 12 that year and I am so glad that I spent that time with her and saw so much of the world, though I have no desire to ever cruise again... One year I decided to see as many concerts as I could, I saw just about every concert possible that year and had a blast doing so. I have such great memories from that year; it did cost me a fortune... but still no regrets!!
I need to think about this year and my journey. I need to focus on what I’ll try to accomplish or do, that will make me happy for many years to come. La de da de de, la de da de da.
