I'm not sure what the new year means to you, but for me, it's usually my cue to create my list of things I want to do better in my life...I write up the usual suspects, get organized, eat better, exercise, stop losing my phone, laugh more, make a budget, etc. But then some hiccup comes along and derails me...and I stumble along, just getting by, usually until some benchmark, like New Years, or tax day, or my birthday, prompts me to evaluate another shot at being better, doing better.
The funny thing about benchmarks is that there is always another one. It's an amazing built in excuse for waiting until "then" to jump back on the path envisioned. I have to admit it happened to me in the past few weeks...I had decided in December that January 1 would be a great day to start "the plan" - I had my plan and I was sticking to it! Then we got the call that my new nephew would be coming into the world around New Year's Eve, so it was road trip time and all my good intentions would just have to wait.
When I found Tees2Greens website and forum I found a happy place. There were great people there and in 2009 they asked me if I wanted my own blog space. It was a dream come true!! The site is down now, but I was able to get all of my posts to be able to post here. I will always be grateful for all of the Tees2Greens folks!!
