Thankful Tuesday 9/9/14

Tuesday, September 09, 2014

I just got back from a fabulous walk with a friend from my old job. Listening to her talk about work confirms that the decision I made a year ago 9/13/13 to retire was the right one. I can't believe it's been almost a year.

This past year has been filled with:
~ Joy
~ Awesome time spent with my little granddaughter
~ Terrific time spent with hubby (since I'm less stressed, we spend a lot of quality time together!)
~ Learning more about myself
~ Enjoying life as it comes to me
~ Lots of outside time in all of the seasons
~ Happiness and Love

I can't express the joy I feel, and how lucky I feel to have been given this gift of early retirement. My life is awesome!!!!!!


I am the only one who can do this for myself.
I make the choice of what I put in my mouth.
I make the choice to exercise daily.
I make the choice to have a positive frame of mind.
I make the choice to be healthy!

Goals for today:
~ read my mantra
~ 80 oz water
~ 17,000 steps
~ 25 flights of stairs
~ keep an open mind
~ journal every bite
~ smile at least once an hour
~ learn something new and remember what I learned
~ eat a fruit or vegetable with every meal and as one snack today
~ laugh out loud today
~ focus on this lifestyle I have chosen for myself and don't sweat the small stuff
