Savor Life

That's my only new year's resolution for 2012 -- Savor Life!

It was a good year 2011.  It was my year of metamorphosis, moving into the next phase of life.  As much as anything, it was a mental process but there were measurable milestones that helped me see progress.

My primary goal of better health yielded good results. In December a required health screening for  health insurance showed all tests well within normal. I've gained strength and stamina and lost weight with my exercise program.  I feel so grateful for good health.

My photography, gardening, painting, music, movies, and even cooking (yes, I'm returning to cooking), all call to me when I'm spending those hours working at a computer.  I am so ready to leave the working world behind in just one more year. 

Every day when I wake up, I think, "Oh, good, I got another one."  I've learned to lean into my hardships and deal with them, and to positively relish the joyful times.

And that brings me back to my resolution - Savor Life!  

Happy 2012 to all of us.

Love it. With each passing year this is better advice.
