Happy New Year

Wow, 2009 came and went didn't it? I can't believe how quickly time has begun to pass. At times it seems my life is spinning out of control! What an experience '09 was to me. So many things happened and so many things that I wanted to happen didn't, but what can I say, I am so blessed. God has been so good to me and my family. Sure we have had our fair share of heartaches and obstacles, good times, celebrations and shed our fair share of tears but we are still blessed.

Looking back from where I have been and where I am going I can only be humble. Of course I am not everything I want to be, or everything I should be, but with God's help I hopefully can be what He wants me to be.

I pray that all of my friends out there reading this can reflect on their lives and see how blessed they truly are, even if they dwell on how they want things to be and get depressed about how many times they may fall short of reaching their goals each and every person is blessed in some way.

So, here is to a fruitful, healthy, and happy 2010, I hope it is everything you want it to be, and it can be if you decide to make it happen!

Happy Birthday to me!

At 9 something this morning, 37 years ago I came into this world rear first. :)

Today is the first day of my 37th year on this earth. To date I have had 13,140 days to make an impression on this world and everyone I have had contact with. Wow, that is a lot of opportunities to build someone up or tear someone down.

Beginning with today I have 365 days of this 37th year to make a difference, good or bad. As far as working out I have 365 opportunities to either do it or not, 365 opportunities to make excuses or get off my rear.

Also beginning with today I have 365 days of 5 meals per day to make either good choices or bad choices, that's 1,825 times I can choose a bacon double cheese burger and fries, or a grilled chicken salad with olive oil and vinegar.

Looking at it that way I can understand that I have a lot of opportunities to do the right thing for my body, or the wrong thing, which ever way you want to look at it, I choose the former.

I don't want to sit here at this computer 365 days from now and think, "What if I had only been more dedicated? What if I had been more disciplined? What would I look like and feel like physically and emotionally right now?"

That is toxic. Every day is a gift, and we get to unwrap it 365 times in 1 year. Make your gift be something you have always wanted!
