Good Morning Foodies!
We all know that this time of year brings about the following flow of thoughts:
REVELATION—-(SOMETHING ENLIGHTENING OR ASTOUNDING)—“I MUST DECIDE WHAT GOALS I WANT TO ACHIEVE THIS NEW YEAR!”
RESOLUTION—-(FIRMNESS OF SOME PURPOSE)—“I HAVE DECIDED WHAT GOALS WILL WORK FOR ME—I THINK!”
RESTITUTION—-(RESTORING TO SOMETHING MANAGEABLE)—“I MUST STRIVE NOT TO SET MYSELF UP FOR FAILURE AND NOT BE SO HARD ON MYSELF IF MY GOALS ARE NOT ACHIEVED! “
If you recall, last year at this time, I said that basically RESOLUTIONS, usually set us up for failure. We tend to focus on WEIGHT LOSS, MORE EXERCISE, EATING HEALTHY, ETC. Yes, these are great but we all know at some point in time, FAILURE SETS IN! I have decided to do things for other people or things that make me feel good about myself. I have decided I’ll never get down to my original weight and I am okay with that……after all, 7 lbs. 6 oz. is JUST NOT REALISTIC! I just try to wake up each morning and be thankful for my family, friends, and health and always try remember to thank GOD, for all my blessings!
This is how I am trying to approach this NEW YEAR!
“Don’t think about what can happen in a MONTH. Don’t think about what can happen in a YEAR. Try to FOCUS on the 24 HOURS in FRONT OF YOU! I feel this can help me do what I CAN and get CLOSER to where I WANT TO BE!” I have always been told, “DON’T LIMIT YOUR CHALLENGES, CHALLENGE YOUR LIMITS!”
Now, here is something to ponder on: “ASH WEDNESDAY is on VALENTINE’S DAY, which means if you go out to dinner, will have to pass on the steak and have fish. EASTER is on APRIL FOOL’S DAY, HA!-tell the GRAND PEEPS to go and find the hidden Easter Eggs—OOPS-APRIL FOOL! Bet that goes over big! 2018 is gonna be a WEIRD YEAR FOR US CATHOLICS!!!!!!!!!!
I am so glad to be back with all you FOODIES. I hope you had a very Merry Christmas and continue to have a blessed NEW YEAR! Have a safe and productive weekend!
