Last year was a doozy.

I started a new job, traveled more than I ever have in the past 4 years, developed some negative behaviors in response to stress, and capped the year with the loss of my father.

I’m implementing some strategies this year to take back my life and heal. Starting with regular physical exercise! I’ve been phrasing this as building a habit and choosing to refer to this as just a habit is helping me view my workouts in a more positive light.

Planning for the funeral is underway and expectedly, it will mean a not insignificant amount of money will be spent by me. Rather than bemoan the unexpected expense, I’m incredibly grateful that I can absorb the hit without jeopardizing my future.

Anyway, so far so good.
