3 easy ways to kick start your Spectacular New Year

Eat!

Feeling Spectacular means eating in a healthy way. Think through your food selections. Make your nutrition choices something worthy of the Spectacular life you will be living! That means you quit the all-day snacking. Stop reaching for the junk food. And forget about skipping meals. Feel better about your life by feeding your body better. Picture yourself in something SaSS-Y! (rather than sweatpants.)

Drink More!

Water that is. Replace some of the calories from juice, soda and alcohol. Fewer calories could mean weight loss. Which always makes us feel better. And feeling better is a big part of living a Spectacular life. Refocus on that SaSS-Y! image you generated earlier in this post.

Be Merry!

Can’t live a Spectacular life if you are wallowing in a negative attitude! Bust out of it! You decide how you feel about your circumstance. Turn that frown upside down. You don’t have to whistle a happy tune, but you do have to reframe your thinking. Find a joke, silly song or comical sit-com rerun to get your mood elevated each day.

To Be Continued…

Spring is here. The vaccine is available. People are scheduling events and making travel plans.  But for many others, nothing will change. Their actions will still be limited. They will still be living a solo existence.  For many – life will continue along the same path.

We also know something about that path for those living alone. Those along the Spectacular life journey will view the path much differently. We understand that living alone gives us the luxury of self-reflection on our own timeline.  The solitude gives us latitude to explore: our skills, our motivations, our fears, our shortcomings, our goals, desires, regrets, losses, our Spectacularness.

We know that our mindset draws out the Spectacular in us. We know that our determination to be so makes us Spectacular. We know that despite what may be going on around us, we will continue. We will continue to embrace. We will continue to explore. We will continue to celebrate. We will continue to encourage. We will continue to grow in Spectacular ways.

We will continue along the path of Spectacular. Happy Spectacular spring!

This says it all!

Yes, this phrase says it all.

A colleague shared this at work one Friday morning. How fitting for our Spectacular lives.

It is our belief that forms our impressions. It is our belief that makes our lives spectacular. It is our belief that living alone does not mean we are lonely.

So, as we settle in with the latest ‘must read’ book. Or dress for the weekly grocery trip. Or lace our shoes for the solo walk to the park. Whatever the task: we do it convinced, determined, defiant, Spectacular!

Because that is exactly what we are: Sixty and Specularly Solo -Yes!

REFLECTION

The past nine to 12 months have given us plenty of time to think, to reflect.  Our every-day routines have been up-ended. Our relationships put on ‘pause’. Social events have been non-existent. Visits with family and friends have been reduced to ‘Zoom’. Groceries are delivered. Physician visits conducted by computer. Children learning? Are they?

So much around us has changed. But have we? Have we worked to understand how we view the world we live in? What role we play in the world we see? How we can make it better for ourselves? For others? Have we come to understand what about us has changed? For the better? Or not?

Reflection.
