Post 7 / Day 37 ~ My Pantry of Possibilities

I am so excited for the new year!!  Why?... You ask.  Well, it is like you are given a chance to start over... a fresh start sort of speak.  As if, the only things in the "air" are kindness, goodness... and nothing but sweetness.  All ideas being obtainable with such optimism.

The new year always puts out it's own "holiday" energy.  When Christmas rolls around... I always get taken back to my own childhood at Christmas time... as if anything were possible... wishes "could" come true.  To me, the new year brings on a feeling of new, of hope and of many possibilities.  As if in one year everything in your life "could" change.   

I have started this year with so much hope and faith... so many plans and aspirations.  I have this "weird" feeling... a sense of "belief" if you will.  I believe that if I do right by myself... take care of myself...  enjoy my life... all else in the universe will fall into place.  Yes... that's right... it will all fall into place.

Funny... I remember once when my brother sick, he was working so hard and I suggested to him to take it easy, just while he was sick.  He was quick to respond to me ... "businesses do not stop sending bills out when we are sick... if I do not work... no one else is going to work for me."  

Having said that... If I want a particular LifeStyle, or rather if I want to live a certain way, a healthier way... a way that betters the chances of my living a long, happy and healthy life... to be around for my children... I have to do it myself... no one else is going to do it for me.

SOOooo... with my cabinets purged of all things (bad) that I can live without, which weren't many, I start my year (and the rest of my life,) with a healthy, yummy pantry

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.  ~World Health Organization, 1948

Drink plenty of water (coffee and fresh juices made with water count too!)... [plenty = basically a gallon,] snack often, keep busy and be active with your family!  A family that plays together, stays together!  

Stay healthy and Think Positive!

I tried to post before and I got an error. I love your positive outlook. I imagined myself throwing all of my negative feelings and energy into a hefty bag and tossing them. It's nice to be optimistic instead of Negative Nelly.

I have been focusing on drinking more water (less soda). I have been using coffee as some of that water. It helps that my friend and colleague is also trying to drink more water because we keep each other honest and give each other ideas. :)

I agree, I think if we are on the right path and doing what feel right, everything will and does fall into place...exactly as its supposed. Good for you cleaning the pantry, in both your home and your life!

Yes! Yes! Yes! So true. We have to do it for ourselves...

I too believe that putting out the right energy puts us in the right path for those things to come to us. I think it's great that you set your life up for what you want. Whenever I have done that I have found it worked, the trick for me is knowing what I want and be willing to put the actions to the words! Great post and great site!!

It's so good to set aside some time to set goals for ourselves and our health! That was a very positive post. All the best in 2012
