      Oh my... It sure has been a while since I sat down to write a thought or two on this blog. I feel a bit guilty for not keeping up with it the past year, but in the same time I am giving myself some understanding. I got bored. I was not in the mood. I stopped using my camera. I had no time. I wasn't in the right state of mind. I was insecure. 

     I had no intention of stopping altogether, but the thought did cross my mind once or twice...  Or maybe not stop, but try something new. A fresh start. Then I kept going back and forth and ended up staying in the same spot. Still a bit unsure how this will go, but one thing is certain. I want to continue documenting our journey one way or another. Maybe I'll just spruce up the space and continue. Maybe I'll give it a new face and a new direction. I wish I could take it more seriously and be more straightforward in my posts. I definitely feel I can share ideas and some of the things I know. I can be interesting!

    At the moment I am sitting in my mother's den after a day of snoozing and mostly just switching horizontal positions... oh and we are still on a 'eating for fun' kind of state so that is still going on. I will probably hate myself at the next gym session. 

     The first day of 2018. It never ceases to feel like a fresh start no matter what the grinches of the world are saying. The 1st of January is never 'any other day'. It feels like you owe it to yourself to contemplate and reprogram. To set those new goals to chase for an entire 365 days. I am doing quite well with our tradition of writing down our goals and scratching them off at the end of each year. For me it's important to keep the goals specific, even if that means writing down smaller tasks. still, the sense of accomplishment when we manage to tick them off makes me feel 100%, so why not??!
