Wow, the holiday’s are here and gone, it seems like it all went so fast. We just came home from Mexico and had an amazing time….it’s our first vacation in 4 years….I don’t want to wait that long to do it again. I think that I would love to live in a tropical environment for the winter….I know I would. My skin looked so healthy, (in fact my hands looked so good and without lotion until we flew back into Michigan….then they were all dry and shriveled looking), the produce was so so so good and I never get tired of sunshine…..yes…..I want to live in a tropical environment for the winter. I also discovered a wonderful salad while I was there….I think that I’ll call it “Salsa Salad”…..it will be posted this week….good stuff!
Alexis got sick for the first 2 days there….but was good to go after that….and thank God the rest of us didn’t get it. Alexis and I also got to swim with the dolphins….way way way cool, Brett and Alexis went para sailing, we all went to a couple of different parks where you could jump off of cliffs, scuba, raft through caves, drive Jeeps….the kids didn’t get to though because you had to be able to prove that you were 18 to drive it and Brett didn’t bring his license…..they did travel through zip lines though….I was up and hooked up but just couldn’t bring myself to do it….I’m a wimp : ( I was so grateful to not be fat at these parks….I wouldn’t have been able to do most of what we did….they were work outs….and I loved it….so maybe I’m not such a total wimp : ) The food at “Explore” was awesome and all healthy….probably the best selection of things I could eat the entire trip. The parks were nothing like anything in the US….I don’t think that they have many lawyers there….you were at your own risk….and there were some very big ones. Eric and I loved the town of Play Del Carmen….the kids weren’t big on that….but we went twice….love it! Eric and I are also planning on taking Spanish when we can find a class….it was fun using what little we knew and learned….Alexis’s 2 years of Spanish came in handy quite a few times….I wonder if she can get extra credit for that : ) I also did yoga on the beach….what a great exceptional feeling that was….next time however I won’t do it directly on the sand in my bathing suit….I paid for that for a few days.
Last year Eric, the kids and I all put lists together of what we wanted for the year and I kept them in an envelope all year. Everything that was important to each of us was received, accomplished or fulfilled by something similar or even closer to the actual essence of what we really wanted…..thanks God! We did that again on New Years Day….in Mexico : ) At a meeting today we were asked the question, “What would you attempt to do if you knew that you would not fail?” That is a great question! It’s a question we should all ask ourselves on a regular basis…..then just do it. Several years ago my list included getting my weight under control….and I found cea how in February….I love New Years.
For several months I was getting the feeling and desire to go back into real estate….I’ve done it on and off along with mortages for most of my adult life and have always kept up on the market just because I’m interested in what’s going on. This is something that I’ve been taking the next step with for a little over a month and I’m starting tomorrow with re-orientation to the board of realtors….and have a company that I’ll be working with….so far everything feels right….it feels like God is guiding me…..I’ve had this feeling with things in the past and it usually does turn out to be God working wonders in my life….I’m excited to see what He’s going to have me do with this….I have complete trust in Him.
What’s in store for you for 2010? What would you like it to look like? Visualization is a powerful tool….try it on purpose and see.
