Good morning and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I am up early as usual. 😉 Buzz and I never go out New Years Eve, I think since we have known each other we maybe have gone out 2 times. We snuggled on the couch with our babies, ordered door dash and watched movies. We were exactly where we wanted to be. Hopefully you all rang in the New Year exactly how you wanted…partying it up or not. 🙂
I had a wonderful 2018 …but the fresh start of a new year is always good too. I always like to reflect back and see what I have accomplished AND what I could have done different. I am one that tries to live in the present moment. I try not to regret anything in the past and I don’t worry too much about the future. I plan for the future, but you can’t worry too much about it. If you live in the present moment you will be a much happier person. 🙂 🙂 🙂
Losing my dog back in July was probably the hardest time of 2018. Ugh! I miss him so much! I actually spread his ashes back in Arizona when we went back for Christmas. Oh boy…gave me chills, but that is a long story. If you believe in “signs”…Buzz and I sure got some. We also spread Josie’s ashes at the same time. She died in 2012 from the exact same thing Neo did. They both had lymphoma. They were best buddies and I am so glad I kept her ashes that long. I miss all my babies. At one time I had 4 big dogs, they all have since passed…BUT I still have a dog and a cat. They are amazing, best friends and I feel so lucky that I am their mommy. 🙂
Speaking of Arizona, Buzz and I spent a week there with family. It was such a great trip. We met up with friends, went to our favorite restaurants, spent time in Northern Az…we did a lot of reminiscing. We lived there over 20 years and have so many amazing memories. I will always love Arizona, but I was ready to come home. I doubt I will ever live in the desert again, (I never say never) but I will say I did miss Northern AZ. There is just something about being in the mountains that makes me feel like I am home. Time will tell…. I am very much enjoying the beach life for now. 😉
I am so very happy Buzz and I took the risk and moved to CA. It was so scary …and if you know me… I hate change!! However I have learned that change is necessary for growth. BOTH business/career and personal growth. If you always stay the same and never change, you are missing out. Trust me. I was perfectly happy in Arizona, but even happier now. (which I didn’t think was possible)
I did pretty good on my heath last year, but this year I am making it a priority to get in the best/healthiest shape ever! My diet is pretty clean already, but I can do better. 50 is just a number…and I say Bring It On! 😉 I am so ready to push my limits!
I wish you all a fabulous 2019! This is your year to flourish! 🙂
