Birthday Reflections

Last week I had my birthday. I turned 38, which really isn't an exciting birthday. But I do like the fact that my b-day falls in the middle of the year, because I think this is a good time to assess how I've been doing since my New Year's post.

Me on the 4th of July

And I think I've been doing pretty good. Excellent actually! I've definitely gotten out more. And I've met a lot of great people who I now consider friends. My art has a location to be shown. Two locations actually and I have more events coming up! Wow, lots of changes in the last few months!

The one area I've fallen short in is getting healthier. It seems the busier I've gotten the worse I eat! I need to make this my focus for the rest of the year. I know I would feel better and have more energy. I NEED the energy!

Tomato from my garden - a good start in getting healthy!

Yes, I see more veggies in my future. Water too. I have a horrible diet soda addiction that I need to overcome. And exercise. Who has the time? I do actually. But I have a million little excuses as to why I can't. But I have to. I need the mind/body balance that I'm lacking.

So there it is. More goal setting. More to do. More Joy.

Do you take the summer to assess your goals? How have you been doing?

  1. Happy Birthday - and yes, it's never too late to just try a new thing. I agree, a middle of the year birthday is a wonderful "new year" for you. Wishing you much success and luck!
