Another trip around the sun
I have 60 years left on this planet. I am going to live until I am a healthy 100 years old.
I will turn 40
My oldest will turn 18
Papabird and I will be celebrating 20 years
My Dad will turn 69
This will be a year of milestones for sure.
2017 was a great year but it was a year of great change. There were many things thrown at me that were very unexpected most I did not handle very well.
I did not react well to most things, but I have the power to change that. I am a highly reactive person and usually strike back hard and fast when hurt or angered without thinking. I have worked hard over the years to get this reaction in check but I had some recent situations in my life that caused many hurt feelings.The second half of 2017 is when I really focused on what I needed to change.
"All bad habits start slowly and gradually and before you know you have the habit, the habit has you." Zin Zigler
I realize now that life is about perspective and the law of attraction.
The thoughts you have in your head become who you are. Raised by a police officer I grew up in a house where the glass was half empty. There is always something bad out there, someone is always out to get you, expect the worst and be prepared for it......
Well living this way put me in a very negative place. I mean how can I be happy and positive if I think that something bad is always around the corner and am too busy preparing to deal with situations that have not yet happened.
Sure bad shit is going to happen but I am trying hard and have making giant steps on focusing each day on the good in life, NOT the bad! The birds are chirping and the sun is shining- even when they are not!
Are some things that I have been doing regularly in 2017 which I really believe have helped. When your body mind and soul are nourished and feeling good, life will follow. I have lost 25 lbs. and am a much stronger me. Physically and mentally. I am excited for 2018 and am ready to take it on with a new mindset and motivation. I have some exciting projects that I am working on, this will be an amazing year!
