Goodbye 2014, hello 2015!

Life’s roughest storms prove the strength of our anchors.

This quote got me through the ups and downs of this last year! I took a leap of faith and moved cross country and I haven’t regretted it for a minute. So while I had a theme for 2014 but I didn’t fully embrace it.

I’ve had a chance to sit and reflect the past few days as I’ve been home with my family. Unplugging to a degree, watching the deer, sitting on the sun porch with the heat on, watching squirrels chase each other around trees. While my family drives me bonkers, I’ve tried to just let it go by the wayside and find peace in other areas.

January I turn 40! People have been asking me if I’m freaking out or what I think about it. While midway through this year I was having a freak out moment or two, but I’m learning to embrace it because it’s not like I can change it! In some ways I feel peaceful about it like great things are going to happen!

My theme for 2015 is Strength; body, mind, spirit, life! I want to get stronger be able to do anything and live longer! Now that I’ll be 40 I can do some masters level competitions. Strengthen my mind by putting me first and making decisions for what is good for me and for my values. Strengthening my faith and all that entails for keeping my spirit in alignment. Finally strengthen my life which sort of falls into life too!

It’s a blessing to have a terrific coach at OPEX that challenges me beyond the barbell and into life. Having the support makes a difference in my life and I’m not sure how I’d be able to accomplish so much without him!

Reflect on 2014, leave past hurts in the year and move fresh going forward. What’s your theme for 2015?! Who do you have in your life to help you achieve it?!

Be true to you!
