Recently, I came across a question a magazine posed to its readers: What are you going to do to make 2014 great? The question made me realize that although many things in life are out of my control, I can take steps to try and ensure that 2014 is great, or as great as I can make it.
So, here’s my plan:
I’m going to try and stop being so hard on myself. I can’t change being on disability. I can’t go back to my teaching career. I can’t change my medical diagnosis. I can simply take little steps to make each day as pleasurable and pain-free as possible. I’m going to remember to breathe. I’m going to focus on all the things I still can do. I’m going to sit on my patio and read (and not feel guilty about it). I’m going to hug my son and kiss my husband with passion and gratitude each day.
And now its your turn, dear readers. Even if you don’t want to share your plans here, think about things you can do to make this new year a great one!
Wishing you all a happy and healthy new year!
