New Year

New Year

Happy 2016!  Last year flew by.  I have been off work for the holidays and the relaxing and family time has been nice.  As I look forward to 2016, I am excited about the things to come.  To be honest, last year was pretty awesome and I don't say that often.  I made some huge changes in my life and actually lived up to my 2015 resolutions.  I simplified my life by taking a low stress job that has allowed me to enjoy time with my family.  My creativity has been sparked again and I have worked on several things that I have wanted to do for a long time.  I wrote.  Not a ton but I started writing again.  I lost 53 pounds in 2015... and that was starting in July. I also got my water intake and sleep on a better track.  I traveled a ton -- Jamaica, Belize, Honduras, Mexico, Grand Cayman, Galveston, and Minneapolis twice (for work).  I built up more savings as well.  Above all, I became far more calm and content with life.  I am positive once again. And have became a positive influence in others life.  So 2015 was a good one for me and I am looking forward to this year and the positive changes it brings. 

My goals for 2016 are:

1. Lose another 50 lb.  Why not?  I feel great and another 50 would get me to a pretty great spot.  Besides my new way of eating has become pretty easy and I can't imagine going back.

2. Get my business off the ground.  I am no longer restricted on my sales platform.  I am working on a sticker sheet to see how I like it. If all turns out, I will probably launch the stickers/stationary on Etsy first.

3. Declutter.  This has been a 2015 work in progress for me and I want to continue.  We don't need all this stuff that we have and in the theme of simplifying, I'd like to continue. I'd also like to continue my focus on quality vs. quantity.

So that's about it.  I'm going to keep on doing what I've been doing and hope that 2016 treats me just as well as 2015 did.
