Sara’s Corner: Ode to a New Year

By January 2, 2016Sara's Corner

Welcome 2016!  I’m embracing you with open arms and a hopeful heart!  You may ask that I make a resolution to set myself straight for your duration, but I refuse. I’m just not that kind of woman.  I don’t make declarations of rigidity in my life and I don’t set myself up for failure.  I prefer more fluid and progressive intentions which support an evolution of self.

In reflecting back on your predecessors; 2015, 2014, 2013…..etc., I notice slow, progressive changes in my lifestyle. I notice a shift in mindset towards accepting a mini-work out, no matter how small, versus beating myself up for not accomplishing an hour and a half of dripping sweat because my day had a  disruption due to work or family. I observe an evolution of my palate and what I chose to put in my body because I’ve taken the time to listen to my body’s response to different foods over the past two years. I feel the shift in my belief regarding the importance of taking care of myself and that time spent filling my cup is not wasted. I feel the depth of these changes and the integration of them into who I am.  I am not a program or a diet or a challenge this year, 2016.

I am me and I hope to become better this year. Better physically, mentally and emotionally. I hope to be a better physical therapist, mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend and citizen. But not through radicalization, I want to evolve and keep the good I’ve cultivated.

So let’s go 2016, I’m ready for growth, change, and better without any guilt, failure or judgement!
