Sometimes the best place to begin going forward is to consider where you have been and what you have learned.  I like to sit back at the end of the year and analyze (many things) my fitness progression through the year, overall race success and weaknesses, and also just LIFE.  Am I where I want to be, am I living according to my values.  I wrote 19 things that I was reminded of, or discovered in 2019 on my blog.

Hello Fit Friends!  

I get GIDDY with excitement of planning and evaluating the past year and looking proactively forward for what aligns with my heart and life goals.
I wrote up in my latest blog some thoughts on 2019 and one of them is this:
I stand by my passion for GOALS. Many people are so set AGAINST setting new years goals and intentions, and I don't understand that. Everyone should be able to trust themselves with their goals and be strong to commit to themselves. Goals don't need to be unattainable. There is no reason to not have a GOAL that you are working towards at all times in life. (even if sometimes that goal is to take 2 weeks to come up with a well- defined goal for the next year or decade).  Set a specific intention that is based on  a reason you are passionate about.

If you are open to looking to find your potential, it is worth taking  a risk to aim high, to set a plan, and to be fully immersed in that plan, riding the waves.  
May 2020 bring you many blessings, health, happiness and fitness.
