2016 – A Year of Growth

Or “abundance”?  Or “self-care”?  I’ve been working on goals for myself and I came across the suggestion last year of having a theme.  I found that it did help me focus my goals a bit and help me focus ON my goals better over the course of the year.  So…what should my theme be for 2016?  I don’t know.  My mind is going blank.  Last year, I immediately knew what I wanted as a focus.  This year is less clear.  Maybe “abundance,” as I am expecting to buy a new car shortly (the old one died 12/24/15…sigh), and I know that I will be receiving money from one of my late father’s insurance policies.  Maybe “self-care” because I know areas that I need to improve on are eating better and exercise.  What to do, what to do…

Growth to me means focusing on personal growth and development.  That too is something I want to work on.  I know I don’t have to have a theme, but I think it helps overall.

This is really rather silly over all.  I am going to take a look at my goals and what I would like to accomplish over the next year, three years, and five years and see if anything jumps out at me.

I’m really looking forward to 2016.  Here’s to a healthy, happy new year for all of us!
