Did you happen to read the article; What Makes Olga Run, lessons from a 94-year-old athlete featured in Parade, Sunday Plain Dealer’s supplement 12/29/13. In a nutshell, it’s an inspiring, must read about an older woman whose health rivals that of a fit 50 year-old because of six simple lessons which she shares with readers. These important insights are just in time for the new year.
In some cultures, tradition dictates that nothing from the old year goes into the New Year. This means that before the New Year begins, Christmas decorations are packed away, soiled clothes washed and the home completely cleaned. I agree, it's important to determine what is still worthy of moving forward into the New Year. Will you pursue a new hobby, join a choir or begin writing a book? How about focusing on a healthier life, running a marathon, or sharing your time by volunteering and serving others?
In the days ahead, I hope to post some success stories from our SCS family. So please, keep me informed of your 2014 pursuits so that we may celebrate these positive changes with you and shine a bright spotlight on your good news!
As we look forward to a New Year, let us toast to the good life, full of independence, purpose and joy!
