2018 was pretty trying with family health challenges and passing of my dog, Kona. As I collect myself and prepare for the new year, I’m reflecting on what I want 2019 to be for me.
The word inspiring me for 2019 is “pace.” As we head into the new year, I want to pace myself appropriately. Admittedly I want to rush into the new year and leave behind the challenges and grief of 2018. I also have many goals to accomplish in the new year as there are several projects I want to move forward. But through any efforts to achieve these goals, I want to PACE myself. “Pace” is a complex term because there are many ways to pace myself. For starters, I want to make sure I get enough rest. If that doesn’t happen, all other efforts will quickly unravel. So, at this point, pacing myself really implies getting adequate rest. None of my long term goals will be accomplished in a day or a week. So, I need to pace myself through those processes and rest as needed (probably more than I think I need to). How will you pace yourself in the new year?
