This July I visited the nutritionist at my gym and I told him that I wanted to start a new diet plan — not a diet, quick fix, lose lots of weight immediately kind of plan, but a holistic approach to eating healthy for life. We looked at my current diet. And then, after disecting everything we agreed on, a plan that I think can work for me. The hardest thing you can do is face the facts. It helped me understand what my problems were and what I could do about them.
It gave me a roadmap for the next year for my health. You need to have a road plan. And sometimes having a 3rd party assess your situation as well as give ideas is the best thing you can do. The contents change. They are updated. I try to make them as clear as possible so they are not open for misintepretation. And I evaluate: does this really work for me? I challenge my own beliefs about my company.

And sometimes I have to make changes — websites need updated and logos changed. Even core values in the company change as the times change. Most of all — the needs of our clients change. And when I give my company regular physicals, we improve as a company. Is your antiques business healthy? When was the last time you evaluated it? Our Antiques Dealer Training and Mentoring Program reminds me of working with my physical trainers and nutritionist to create a plan for healthy living.

Find what makes you happy. And do it. This year blogging has started making me happy again. For several years I struggled with blogging — it felt like an obligation instead of a joy. Which is why I took control this year and changed the way I was blogging. Making the posts more personal, but also blogging less but giving more of myself each time when I do write. When you write a blog you wonder, Does anyone read this? Am I writing words and sending them out in to outer space where they will never be seen again?
And it made me feel so good to know that she was a loyal reader through the years. I want to know what you want to hear about on the blog. What questions you have? What questions I can answer?

While everyone else was modestly covering their legs, Monet painted his dining room bright yellow. He did it because it made him happy. He did what appealed to him.

Secondly, for years I have been trying to meditate. But my Eat Pray Love moment happened at a regatta. Elizabeth Gilbert went to Italy to eat. Gilbert explains,. My mind wanders relentlessly. But I find mental stillness really difficult. For me, it is the opposite problem. I welcome the quieting of my brain. I welcome the solitude to stop thinking but within seconds of starting to meditate, I fall into a deep sleep. Clear your mind. Listen to your breath. Wake up an hour later… Check.
Sitting on the bow of the Dragon Boat, perched high above facing my team, I found my mind clearing. My role as the drummer was to be the heartbeat of the team. I was to watch and mimic the Pacers — when their paddle went up, my arm went up; when their paddle dipped into the water, my drum pounded. I was the only one on the boat who could see their movements — and my job was to communicate to the rest of the team the speed with which to row. It is critical that all paddlers are synchronized in order for the boat to move forward easily.
