"I Can Do"

Well, here we are at the start of another new year. This year it took me a little longer to choose my word for the year. A few different ones kept coming to mind. Last year as I focused on trying to find balance in my life I learned some new things about myself.

I have more fears than I realized. Maybe they come with age. No longer do I want the negative thoughts or fears to take control. So, for the year my motto will be..."I Can Do!"

I Can Do anything that I set my mind to. I will take the bull by the horns and go for it!! If I can lose 35 pounds than I can do just about anything. At least I will darn well try.

I tend to let negative thoughts, fears and lack of self confidence stop me in my tracks. I am always teaching my children and young women that you can do anything if you put your mind to it. It is now time that I take my own advice.

It is exciting...I will look for new goals and challenges for this year. "I Can Do" will reach into all aspects of my life; spiritually, physically, mentally, parenting, teaching, learning, etc... WOW!

I will not deny that it will be hard to retrain my brain to thinking " I Can Do." As I always tell my kids..."I never said it would be easy, I just said it would be worth it."
