Hello my lovelies! It’s July! 2017 is half over. In six months we’ll be musing about how quickly the year went, wondering where it went and thinking about the new year.
Let’s take a moment. How have the first six months of 2017 been for you? How can we reap the best of the rest of the year? What do we need to change? Or is everything going swimmingly?
2017 has been like nothing I expected or wanted when it started out. It’s been
difficult a challenge.
I will spare you the medical blah blah, but briefly: I caught the flu whilst on a trip in January and was wheel chaired off the plane when I arrived back home and into bed for two weeks. In February I ended up in the E.R. for something else and spent two nights in the hospital. And then suddenly in April, it dawned on me that I needed to have a hip replacement and so boom, did that.
Like I said, not what I expected. Up until 2017, I was lucky to be a very healthy person and never experienced what I have in the first half of 2017.
There are six months to turn around 2017. So time to make hay whilst the sun shines and make it count. I’m working on everything about myself this year. I have the freedom now to craft my life exactly to my design. No more expectations or obligations.
Getting into good shape both with physiotherapy and nutrition. Walking and swimming. Working on two books. Making a huge effort to become more social. (I’m definitely a hermit.) Decluttering here and there, every single day. Oh, here’s a biggie: I signed up for social security. I earned it; it’s mine now. It shook me up a bit, I have to admit.
So I just wanted to share with you my sense of urgency. We’re always shocked at how quickly the time passes. Let’s live big and full, my friends.
P.S. I’d love to hear about your 2017 thus far. Good? Not so good? What happened? What has changed? Or not changed? New goals? Tweaking things?
