Making Things Happen

My news years resolution was to travel..and thus far I think it is off to a great start!
My other resolution was really to just Have fun this year! I want it to be a year filled with Friends that love to have fun with me and be spontaneous, a year of fun family get aways, a year of making new friends from other parts of the world, a year to accept every invitation I get, a year of doing new things that I have always wanted to but never mustered up the strength to just do.
As much as I do like to be a homebody and spend a few weekends here and there just sitting around the house and doing absolutely nothing..it is time to get up and get in shape and live a little too!
There has been many times when I am in a funk and I tell myself OK I am gonna go out and do something and then the excuses start coming up, Oh my back or head hurts, I am too tired, I feel like I am coming down with something, I am too broke. ..You know what.. No more excuses for me and so far this year..it has been good.
People think you need to have money to go out and live ..you don't. There are so many things that you can go out and do ..the beach,nature hikes, a coastal drive on your bike,parks that are free and it is great that I have a handful of close friends who are ready to take the road to adventure with me!

I will have to say that my biggest issue is money. I try to be as frugal as i can, and I still never have money. But I have to say that at least I am doing something about it, I'm going to school for a better career that will give me the lifestyle I want. I could be moping around just wishing for more money to fall in my lap. I think that it's great that you except invitations and you are spontanous! You're right that there are so many things to do that are FREE!

Believe me I hear ya. I been doing so many things that have not been costing me any money..but there are the few things that do cost money so those things I have to limit.
It's great to Thelma that you are reaching your goal too! that is what resolutions are all about..getting out there and getting the job done! I am glad too that you are one of my friends that share in my adventures!!!
