Hello 2012!

I can't remember where I got this from so apologies for not crediting it but I thought it nicely sums up my view on 2011. 

It's been a long tradition in my family to look back over the old year on Hogmanay and think about the highs and lows.  And on the surface it would appear that 2011 wasn't a successful one for me.  I didn't get to compete in a triathlon, I didn't finish Boot Camp, I didn't do my half marathon, I didn't sell the house and I didn't get a job.  I had whooping cough, then got an E Coli ear infection,  I developed a knee injury and my back is constantly playing up.  But a lack of success in these things certainly doesn't mean it wasn't a great year.

I love tri training.  I've said before, it suits me.  I can work round the injuries. I love my house so still living here isn't a hardship.  Someone will fall in love with it just like I did.  And as for the job situation, watch this space ;-)

Thanks to some great people I do see how wonderful my life is and will continue to be.  In 2012 I will continue to challenge and push myself in ways I never imagined I could.

Happy New Year! May 2012 bring you everything you deserve xxx

  2. What A great way of relating to life ! You can't always get what you want but thats so not the point. we are all so lucky to just be alive and sharing this beautiful planet. Anything else is just a bonus. You are actually very successful in instinctually recognising that. I hope you achieve one/some of your goals but I more than anything hope you keep enjoying trying. Happy new year.
    James Hill.

  3. Yeah never conform to what is construed as "happy" your achievement's this year will be an inspiration for me.
    lots of love, Fiona xxx

  4. I'm such a great believer in finding happiness from taking the opportunities that present themselves, and not by sitting on our arses waiting for something good to land on our laps. You're a great example of someone who seems to do just that Ali. Looking forward to continuing to be inspired by your journey through 2012. xx

  5. Aww, thanks guys. It's amazing how a teeny shift in your attitude to life can change your life. As for inspiring others, it's me who is inspired by you guys xxx

  6. I really liked this part of the article, with a nice and interesting topics have helped a lot of people who do not challenge things people should know.. You need more publicize this so many people who know about it are rare for people to know this... Success for you.....!!!
