Our honorable mentions for great stories of personal and departmental 2014 goals go to:

Cecile Cherry

– “I have resolved, yet again, to eat healthy on a consistent basis – and this yearI’m really going to do it!”

Sherry White

– “Not only am I committing to a healthier lifestyle, I am trying to live more in themoment. By that I mean to be totally focused on what I am doing at that moment and not letting my mind race on to things that I need/want to do later. If my colleague is asking for my opinion or a patient is telling me a story I want to focus on what they are saying/asking and not be thinking about the project that is on my desk or what I need to do when I get off of work. Same goes for at home – I want to focus on my home life while at home and not on what will be waiting for me the next day at work.”

Robin Webb

–  “My goal is to get fit and lose 50 pounds this year.  I am going to excerise at least 3 times per week and completely change my eating habits.”

Susan  See
