January is not yet over so it’s not too late to think what my word for 2016 will be.  Last year my word was Embrace as I posted in my blog My word for 2015.
I think I met the challenge in the year how I defined the way I would Embrace my year.
This year I want to build on my work on embracing my body and health as they are now that I am 52.  I will continue to embrace ALL the relationships in my life with my husband, my girls and other family and friends.How I want to use Renew for myself this year is to allow myself to be a focus a renewed sense of self.  I will begin by a 30-day cleanse to reconnect with what I eat and finding better ways to continue to feel good with the nourishment I take.  I plan to renew my love of reading books and read a book a month.

I want to look at how we can renew the way we are a family.  Our girls are now 9-1/2 and 7-1/2.  Although they can occupy themselves, my thought of renew is to be active and present in their lives.  I know this is something we do but I want to renew my efforts to be present.

I really believe this will be another good year for me and my family and I look forward to looking back to realize if my try to renew has taken affect.

What are you doing for yourself for the new year?
