As there New Year rolls in, and we all make promises to ourselves about how much healthier, kinder, thinner and more fabulous we will become, it helps to look back and see what has kept us from already being better friends, spouses, parents and people.
For me, when I am stressed, over-booked, under-slept or stretched too thin, I cannot be the best version of myself.
So I am making a promise to me, my Well & Balanced Health clients and to all of the folks that visit RantsRulesandRecipes.com. Because when I am happier and healthier and can be better to/for others.
I am determined to become the kindest, most fit, most creative, most mindful Madeleine I can be.
Rome wasn’t built in a day…..so, this could take a while … cut yourself some slack as you employ changes in your own life.
But do hold yourself accountable.
MY 2014 RESOLUTIONS–I think I did these things and hope to continue to do them
Assume the best in people, Cleaner eating, Restorative and aggressive Exercise, Be More Mindful, Create the Life I Want
I will show gratitude for all the people and blessings in my life. I will continue to make my family my priority.
I will travel and try new things
2014 recap: I took a Jewelry class and Ballet lessons and Archery. My husband and I took a Wellness Retreat to Varenna, Italy on lake Como and spent devoted time with family; we also have added a family member! We have slowed down and started really appreciating our relationships with friends and our wonderfully loving family and are so grateful for our many blessings.
MY 2015 RESOLUTIONS
Avoid being in a Rush,
Nourish myself with new experiences
Take a class in something new/continued learning
Recognize my patterns that are not serving me well
Be as loving and positive as I can be
I am touched that folks read Rants Rules and Recipes and care enough about their health, their loved ones and their communities to share it with others. Thank you.
