I got a job in the corporate world, and found out soon enough that I am not cut out for that...
That suited me about as much as the size X sweatpants I used to wear. I lost 20lbs... Goodbye, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodnight. I've kept it off and this is the first New Years Day in my life where
I didn't need to start a diet.
I started my ETSY site. Set it up by myself, set up PayPal myself. Yep me, formally known as" she who was computer illiterate" now kicking butt and trying STUFF I WOULD HAVE NEVER EVER TRIED BEFORE.
I have stuck with a Yoga program and have not given it up. I am a card carrying Yogini.
I've created a new body...don't get me wrong..It is still the body of a woman who has gained and lost 20lbs.so many times that I have lost count. I still wouldn’t wear a swimsuit in public but if I am held together with black cotton and lot's of lycra I don't look too bad. But the stength, the flexibility, that has come from solid hard work and a firm desire... It did not come from reading a magazine article or talking about how I would love to do it but, it came from putting in the time on the mat.
I brought in more sales at my antique mall space this year than last year...huge, considering a lot of places have closed down.. I just changed up my game plan and worked harder and put in more time.
My music has been taken to a whole new level, again through diligent work and practice and meeting
new people in The Long Beach Uke Club. I play with my rock and roll and blues boys and keep up
All in all a full year..I am hopeful for the next...I am going to work even harder. And mostly
slow down in the process and relish the moments, love and appreciate my friends, be a better
friend, give more, see more movies, play a lot more music, dance more, get outside to run and play, be a better wife, a better citizen and a better me.
Thanks to you all for a wonderful year. You all have helped me in more ways than we'll ever know.
