- Buy an easel and begin working on my Sir Charles series of portraits of which I’ve been keeping in my mind for some time.
- Follow my training schedule for my upcoming half marathon (NOLA) more rigidly in hopes of decreasing my time to under 2 hours.
- Stop planning and learn to let go of the need to control everything.
- Purchase a car.
- Don’t sweat the small stuff, don’t stress the little things, live for today, not tomorrow.
- Continue eating healthy with the “food is only fuel” mentality.
- Don’t be hard on myself if I miss a day of running, have a cheat day, or something doesn’t go according to plan.
- Be kind.
Mostly, I want to live life and love life. Stop worrying about the day to day grind and enjoy every minute by finding ways to make the grind fun.

Lightbulb. Built in blogging time. So here’s to hearing a lot more from me soon! Cheers 🙂
I felt moved to blog about the importance of healthy, positive thinking today. I, like many I know, struggle with the ability to always walk on the sunny side of the street (and this is only in metaphorical terms, because I will go out of my way in my daily walk to and from work to stay on the side of the street where the sun shines). Negative thoughts are a slippery slope, the more you feed them, the more they begin to consume your mind. It’s like when Mike’s family started giving Charlie table food, now it’s all he wants. Charlie only has eyes for food that isn’t his. He has no room or desire to fill his body with what is good for him. He only wants to consumes the bad stuff.
