"Love My Way, It's a New Road"

My Crystal Ball

Christmas has kept me busy. Both of my kids are in town and Taz’s wedding plans are in high gear. Today I am working on my business plan and figuring out how 2016 will look.  It is shaping up to be a transformative year. Here are some of my predictions:

  • The wedding is going to be exhausting, expensive but oh so amazingly beautiful, emotional and awesome.  We are about 60 days out. Dear Lord, hear my prayers….  
  • My son will embark on a big adventure.  I am encouraging him to do a semester aboard for the summer, a road trip across the country, hiking either parts of the Appalachian Trail or the Pacific Crest. The Hunter and I gave him gifts to further that adventure. I am excited to see what he does. 
  • I will transform my business ….. Or go broke trying. I am looking at some new technology, read some good books and have thought long and hard on how I want 2016 to look professionally. Now I need to Get Shit Done by finishing my business plan, creating my routines and stick to them. 
  • I will learn Self Discipline or die trying.  I need it for work and to lose weight and live a healthier life. I need to have a stronger self-control muscle and realize that procrastination is not my friend. 
  • The Hunter will get promoted at his new job and rather quickly.  He will continue to excel and will be rewarded. 
  • My Ex will struggle a bit in 2016. He has some health issues that Taz is downplaying, but I think 30+ years of smoking (1-2 packs daily) is catching up to him. I don’t wish bad on him, but I am realistic. I don’t know how this will impact me, but the possibility is there. 
  • I will expand my social circle and get out more. I spent 2015 hibernating with the Hunter, which was delicious. I recognize that if I want to remain interesting (both for him and me), I need to get out more. 
  • 2016 will be an expensive year. The wedding, my work re-positioning, Taz’s graduation, my son’s big adventure — not to mention my own adventures!  This makes my work re-design oh so important. 

Christmas with the Hunter and our blended families has been lovely. I have been struggling a bit with wanting equal time with my kids, but I’ll talk about that in another post. I’m happy and at the end of the day, that’s what matters.

  2. Enjoy Maggie! All of it.
    I know you can do it, and am looking up to your stamina!
    Maybe one day I’ll get there again, at least the feeling capable and knowing where I go professionally. And in my relationships 😉
