End of Year and New Beginnings

This is a rare pic of Hubs and I facing off and playing Pictionary against each other last night. I went to bed close to my normal getting up time and slept in until 11am. Hubs and I are pretty different but when the s*it hits the fan, he is my greatest supporter, not to mention the best hugger ever. Today has been a topsy turvy day, stomach has been in knots and I've been feeling emotionally out of kilter. It really is true that family issues do become magnified during the Silly Season and whilst the stuff I face is no biggie compared with other's family dramas, it hasn't been much fun. I'm now looking forward to getting back into a normal routine! I managed to do RPM yesterday with John which was a great help and stress release - sometimes it is just great to participate and let the music and instructor take you on a journey.

I do have a few plans for 2009, training wise which I listed a few blog posts ago. On a more personal level, I've set a few financial targets to hit as well as some personal growth goals. I do feel like I'm pivoting on a cornerstone and about to embark on a new quest though I don't know exactly what that is as yet. On reading this, it makes little sense but I'm just going to go with the flow.. and trust that it will all make sense in the fullness of time.

I keep thinking of the quote below and keep hitting on.. "all we have to decide..." so with that in mind, I'm going to make it a good one.

'I wish the ring had never come to me...I wish none of this had happened.''So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.'
