Happy New Year
"The best thing about the future is that it comes only one day at a time". -- Abraham Lincoln
Goodbye 2014 -- You were the year with probably the most change in my life. My 30 year career at JPMorgan came to an end. Gary and I finally purchased our first home. And my beloved Grandma died in a car accident.
I'm looking forward to 2015. First on my list is looking for a new job. I recently went to New Orleans and I had my palm read (a first). The palm reader said I would have two major careers; so duh I don't think I'm going to looking for jobs in the banking industry. This time around I want to work in a job where I feel like I'm helping people.
Secondly I going to continue meeting with a personal trainer twice a week. I've had some amazing results for the several months I've been working with her. I'm getting strong and building up endurance. I actually enjoy the workout sessions. However, my eating habits have to change. I need to get back on a plan.
With the death of Grandma coming so quickly and without warning; I do want to spend more time with family and friends because you just never know what tomorrow will bring. We all have a tendency to take others for granted. I know with my Grandma, she had been with me for 58 years. She was very healthy and I just didn't expect her to leave my life so quickly. I wish I had done more with her. I'm not going to let that happen again.
New Year's eve was different this year. Alex went to a party at a friend's home and Gary had to work; so I went to my Mom's house to play games with her and my sisters.
We got my Mom; and she lost it for a moment. It was a good thing.
What's in store for your New Year? Please let me know...
