As long as life continues and the calendar moves from one year to the next, I will feel like I'm getting a fresh start. A second chance. Leaving one year behind to move forward into the next is a time of deep contemplation. A time of reflecting on what was done well the previous year and what can be done better in the new year.
2013 was a year of realizing how destructive and serious my disease is. I am still recovering from an extensive foot surgery. Recovery has been tough. Even tougher though, is realizing this foot surgery could have been avoided if I had been true to myself more often when making food choices. Since I choose to treat my disease with nutrition rather than drugs, food is serious business for me.
My resolutions/goals for 2014 :
I will continue on the healthy path I started on several years ago.
I will continue educating myself with the best nutritional and holistic approaches to fight auto-immune disease. I will become more disciplined and not slip into poor food choices.
I will exercise on a regular basis including stretching/yoga, strength training, and cardio.
I thank God for leading me down this natural path of healing. This year I will honor Him by doing my very best to stay on that path and will also stay true to myself in the choices I make.
Happy New Year and may there be many blessings to you in 2014!
