So, here are my thought out plans and goals. I’m trying to leave some time to just BE. and have not set too many time limits.
short term ( next 6 weeks)
Start painting again – two years ago I started oil painting. I loved it, and went weekly to evening classes. In the last 4 months or so I have completely lost my mojo / inspiration and painted nothing. I have identified a new class to attend, and hope that I’ll start to enjoy this again.
yoga – I’ve missed too many classes, and let my morning routine slide – it’s only 20 mins , and I feel better for it …. So ….
make an exercise plan doesn’t have to be hard, or onerous to start with. Just to allow me to feel I’m on track for the bigger challenges of next year.
meal plan and structure for boys need to get back in good habits re meal planning / enough fruit / veg etc …. start ordering shopping on line again so we can plan. Get boys to take some more responsibility for what they eat!
think i KNOW need to do this…
stay dry : This is a complete given, but not to be taken for granted
secure / help son 1 job and future
support son 2 in GCSE studies
help son no 3 transition to secondary school
medium term (3-4 months time)
Get serious training underway for triathlon and for 100m ride
start some serious financial planning so that one day I can retire
Plan a big trip with my boys, somewhere exciting like China, or S Africa or India. I want to show them some culture.
long term (9-12 months)
