Nashville or Bust

The trip that started a longer journey

This Year Will Be Different

ImageIIt’s a new year for me and a great opportunity to change things up a bit. And if you know me, “sticking” to goals has never been my forte. So this isn’t going to be easy but it shouldn’t be hard, either.

This year I am going to make a conscious effort to love myself a bit more. Every day I need to do a little something for me that makes me feel good — something that celebrates who I am, what I am and where I am in this funky, spining world. It doesn’t have to be big and glorious. In fact, I prefer if it was just a little something I do for myself that promotes good body, mind and spirit. And, if theories are what they are, this should spill over into a lot of places.

So today, instead of sleeping in, I got up at 5:00. I stretched and I went walking at 5:30. Not sure what got into me but a few steps in I started to run — not fast (can’t really do that, yet) but it was running. The first three minutes were rough. I was going to fall back into walking but I decided to at least go one more block. That push felt good and then it got easier. Before I knew it, I logged 2.58 miles and only .3 of that was a slight walk break in the middle to adjust my music and figure out where I was going to go next.

What are you going to do to love yourself a bit more today?
