Sunday was T – 6 months. 6 months before my birthday. A birthday that ends in a “0”.
6 months used to feel like a long time. Now it flies, FLIES by. So it is time to get the ducks lined up.
What do I want to be different in 6 months? And what am I going to do about it?
I want to get back in shape. Three years ago this fall I ran a half marathon. Two years ago this summer I did spring triathlons. Last year, nothing. I need goals–am thinking about signing up for a couple of 5Ks to get moving. Am not going to talk about losing x pounds or y inches. Just want to be in fierce shape.
Balance. Still trying, still losing. But reframing, realizing that I can’t have traditional 9-5 balance in my life. Need to figure it out, and steal time where I can.
Writing. I am revising my first novel again–getting rid of a character completely, shuffling a couple of scenes. Then back to #2 and continue shopping for an agent.
Reading. Less for work. More for pleasure. Much, much more.
Gratitude. I have a wonderful life. I am grateful for it, and want to keep being more conscious of how blessed I am. No matter what happens, I am blessed.
