Walking the loop with a good friend, she thanked me for getting up early with her, as it was her goal to get in shape (yes, I shared that post with her). She asked me what my resolution was. They simple are not my thing. It puts too much pressure on me. We’re more than 30 days deep into 2017 and I haven’t spoken a word about resolutions. My only continuing vow is to live my best life. I believe this is something I am doing daily. Reflecting back, my word last year and my word every day is “believe”. In 2016 I completed three debt free remodels (beautiful blessed nightmare), I purged 148 articles to date, and shared countless calendar pages. To me these numbers are astounding, but it also reaffirms whatever I can believe in God makes a reality. Looking at the word believe, I notice it also has all the letters to spell Live, so this year I pinned Rachel Snyder’s words to my bulletin board.
“Live as long as you’re alive, why not live? Live life to the fullest. Live it up. Live in the moment. Live as though you only had twenty four hours to live. Live the life you always wanted. Live for your self – not for others, alive or dead. Live on the edge a bit; it’s the only place from which you can take a leap. Live the life that is yours alone. Live wherever you want, with whomever you want; but live. Don’t just get a life– create one, don’t just step into someone else life with what you see on TV or at the movies. Live free or die (even if you’re not from New Hampshire). Live so when you’re dead, people will remark less on what you did in life.”
