It's a new year and we couldn't be happier with the direction we are headed. Both personally & professionally. We feel so lucky every. single. day. for the life we have. It doesn't take a "new year" for us to realize this. We count our blessings every day. Really, every day. With everything we set out to do, our #1 goal is to lead a positive, balanced, fulfilling and happy life. With that being said, here are a couple of our new year's resolutions:
Valerie (I have several but will bore you with only 2)
1.) Read my books.
I kinda have this thing (ok, obsession) with purchasing books. Not a bad thing, right? Except, I never read them. When I'm bored, need to relax, need to de-stress, etc., I go to Barne's & Noble, grab a latte, and walk around. I never leave empty handed. I get home, I start a chapter, stick a cute bookmark into chapter 2, and set it down. Forever. Soooo, this year, I'm going to read my books. If any of you see me purchasing at Barnes & Noble...stop me!
2.) Spread Positivity.
It's easy (we're all guilty of this at some point) to cave to some sort of negativity; gossiping, associating with "cancerous" people, drama, jealousy, dwelling on the negative, etc. Spreading positivity is on my list every year. It takes a strong person to separate yourself from negativity. The result is empowering.
1.) Eat Healthier.
Most days I find myself eating the worst foods I can get my hands on. Whether it'd be McDonald's or Buffalo Wild Wings (both are delicious). But, I want to live past 40. So, I need to eat more vegetables and fruit.
2.) Walk the dogs more.
Not to make it sound like "poor Simon & Jake" because the hounds are pretty spoiled. But, ever since we moved into our house with a fenced back yard I find myself taking them on less walks. Between our busy summers and the fence, I think running around the backyard is "fine". But, I know how much they love to sniff things and go for walks.
We hope 2012 is an amazing and fulfilling year for you all! Here's to a Happy New Year!
Jeff & Val
