The Constitution only guarantees the American people the
right to pursue happiness.
You have to catch it yourself.
Benjamin FranklinGood Ole Ben! :-) As the year is coming to a close I was reflecting on 2010 and I must say 2010 was a great year. I am happy and striving to or rather pursing happiness as the year comes to a close and as the new year is fast approaching! A new year with new hopes, dreams, and possibilities! I am being hit from all sides on the concept of happiness. I wanted to share some of the links Glamour Magazine posted 50 Things to In An Instant Good Mood! The first thing? EXERCISE! Coolness! Don't Be a Martyr! 10 Steps to Letting Go. 10 Ways to Find Happiness. Take Action! 10 Ways to Increase Your Happiness. Why Choice Is the Way to Happiness.
There were some high highs and then there were some low lows but I will "count it all joy." I been saying for months I need to work (or rework) my vision board. Hummm well let me define a Vision Board its a visual depiction of things you want or want to happen or achieve. Here's a great article from Oprah (of course!) What the Heck is a Vision Board http://www.oprah.com/spirit/How-to-Make-a-Vision-Board-Find-Your-Life-Ambition-Martha-Beck
I love Vision Boards! I can say my 2009 Boards brought a lot of things to reality like losing 100 pounds, doing my triathlon, staying focused on my workouts and personal training sessions.
I am an advocate for the book The Soulmate Secret and I did create a vision board or treasure map. But after breaking up with The Mister I ripped that joint to shreds lol very therapeutic. It really isn't for public consumption anyway but he saw it so I need his bad chi off my path to my soulmate! I haven't been motivated to re-do it just yet but I'll work on it in 2011. I need to work on my list and see where old, new guy fits.... Anyhoo we have plans this week and I am excited :-)
My goals for 2011 that I shared on another facebook group are
1. Losing 50 pounds
2. Becoming a certified spinning instructor
3. Getting certified to teach a Les Mills program
4. Get into Yoga (especially Hot Yoga)
5. Stay on my workouts & training sessions.
I will break that all down in another post but I have discussed the need for SMART goals so I'll work through that process with you all and see what shakes out in 2011!!
