Happy 2014! It certainly has made it entrance a memorable one. It snowed here about 3 inches (the people to the North and East of here are getting so much more). The second part of this is it is supposed to feel like -10 in the morning. I have certainly not gone outside anymore than I have had to but like others will have to navigate to work in the morning. Kibbles who usually loves the snow did not dally outside tonight. This afternoon before the Arctic Blast she did enjoy prancing through the snow
I am not a resolution maker. I feel like it makes me feel worse it I fail to keep the resolution. I do however go through my rooms and pare down what I have. Today I began to reorganize my kitchen cupboards. I plan to offer the baking dishes and casseroles first to my family then what they don’t want give them to charity to be used by others. Here I usually give clothes, small furniture and kitchen items to the Vietnam Veterans. The best thing is you schedule a date then they come to your home and pick up the items. Paring down is a goal I would like to work on in 2014.
During the Christmas season my running group started Random Acts of Kindness. It spread to many more people and one thing I learned is that a smile or a compliment can mean as much to a person as money. I plan to continue the random acts throughout the year as it gave me as much happiness as the recipient.
My main wish for this year is to avoid hip surgery and run a 5k (3 miles) in March. Doing therapy during the holidays while combating colds and viruses is not easy. Next week things will return to normal so I will be able to focus more on this goal.
What are you goals for 2014?
