Goodbye 2016! And My Word for the Year!

Fare the well, 2016.  Never come back.

Some good things happened in 2016.  I got my doctorate.  My family is still alive.  My house didn’t burn down.  We got a new car (to replace the old crappy one that was about to drive me completely insane).

So yeah… 2016 can suck it.

I’ve done resolutions in the past, and I’m not going to do those this year.  I never reach them.  Instead, I’m going to do something that I’ve seen lots of other people do.

I’m setting a word for the year.  This word will inspire everything I do: career, weight loss, personal improvement…

And that word is Focus.

I’ve seen people use words like Surrender or Trust or Balance.

I want to focus.  I often feel like I’ve drifted through life, just bumping into whatever comes my way.  Not always, but definitely sometimes.  I need to focus more.

I’ll try to blog monthly about how my focus is helping me.

In weight loss news, Tina is starting a weight loss challenged called Fit Girls on Monday, and I’m doing it with her.  More info (including weigh-in) then!
