Now that I've gotten yesterday's sticky post off my chest, I feel ready to face 2015.
Newly energised doesn't necessarily mean I'm feeling invincible though. So, inspired by my blogging buddy MM, I'm going to test my resolve for a set period of time, committing myself for the next 8 weeks (click HERE to learn more about MM's challenge).
2014 was a year of ups and downs for me, with a series of devastating events shattering many of the resolutions I'd come up with last January.
Even though I worked out with a personal trainer, managed to mostly rid myself of the back pain that's been plaguing me for the last few years, did more burpees than I thought humanly possible, and tried to be as healthy as I could, far too often and easily (not to say readily) I found myself falling off the wagon of good intentions.
Looking back, I often coaxed myself off track by telling myself that I could always make up for it tomorrow, or at least sometime in the next twelve months.
This past Holiday Season, however, I realised the ultimate fallacy of that logic. For tomorrow is not a given. Time is fleeting. And the manner in which we live our moments today is all we will be left to remember tomorrow. Putting things off today will only remind you tomorrow of what you might have done yesterday.
So to remind myself that I don't have all the time in the world, I'm committing to 8 weeks. Because a year is too long.
Happy New Year, faithful readers!
