Success (preparation plus opportunity)

Success is when preparation meets opportunity. So many of us want something in life but yet we aren't doing anything towards our goal. I have always wanted to be a writer but for years I let fear of what others think keep me from writing. We are what I do. If we want to be healthy we need to make healthy choices. If we want to be happy we need to spread happiness. If we want consistency then we need to take steps to be consistent. That's my list. I am working on being present, happy, healthy and consistent. Opportunities come but we aren't ready. Being in shape helps us prepare for the next stage in life. Monday comes for us but are we ready? What can we do tonight that will ensure we have the Monday we desire? You decide. 

Welcome 2016

Thanking the Lord for another year. I was able to accomplish so much last year. I really got my weight and finances under control in 2015!!! I finally moved in with my husband after 7 years of marriage!! I have two children out of the house which feels amazing!!! Now for this current year. I want to deal with and conquer the fear that has kept me from writing and publishing. This year I want to complete my writings that I have started over the past 20 years. I finally have all my writings recovered and on one computer. So now I just have to make a decision on what I need to work on first and execute. I am so thankful and appreciative for all that I was able to accomplish last year. Some of the things I was able to do like purchasing my first home were because I worked hard since 2010 to get my credit right, save money, and because Huntington is a great bank! I was able to buy my home from my father which really made the process a lot easier. My goals are really the culmination of lots of small things done right. I got baby fever at the end of the year and struggled with whether or not there is room in our lives for another baby. At 40, I'm not sure it's something I can take on physically or mentally. But no one ever regrets having a baby! But now that my oldest is married, I'm sure Grandbabies are in my foreseeable future. So maybe that will fufill my fix. I have gained 8 pounds over the holiday so I've got to work to get that off! I'm going to relish every moment of 2016. Are you?
