2013. It was pretty uneventful in our house…. It came in the night and here it is. Last year at this time I had big plans for 2012. Big! I was going to do things that scared me, I was going to work on jumping higher, risking greater, and living enthusiastically. I think I’ll put a stamp on 2012 as a big big success in that category. It also had some challenges, but what is life without a little unexpected crap? It keeps things exciting. I’m learning to embrace the hard parts and do my best to laugh at them.
Mostly, I want to hear about what your goals are for the year. The things that other people plan on trying, accomplishing, tackling, etc are so inspiring! You all are pretty amazing and are always doing stuff I would never think to try.
While I wait for your awesomeness (Like miss Callie who is going to go camping in Kentucky and then scope out some distilleries…. cuz YEAH!) I’ll share with you the two goals I have for the year. And yes, just two… last year I was tackling the world, this year we have a lot of life transitions happening (baby, yes, but other things too… hopefully).
My first major goal for 2013 is to work on doing at least 1 thing just for me. This year has had a lot of time and money spent on other people – which I love! Two weddings of two of my very best friends and all of the events that come with them, trips to Mexico City for family, unexpected costs here and there, and then of course the pregnancy. And I know that having a child is going to change priorities a bit, but I want to make sure I still take a moment to say yes to me sometimes, even if that means saying no to other people. So my goal is just 1 thing in 2013.
My second goal is to feel good about where my body is by next Christmas. I miss spending time working out and feeling sore and pushing myself to do one more set. I miss it so much. And I miss feeling strong and in shape vs large, slow, and out of breath. I know that bouncing back after giving birth takes some time, I know that there are weeks of healing following labor/delivery, I know that some things won’t be exactly the same. And I’m (mostly) cool with that… I just want to know that I’m on the right track by next Christmas. Not everyone is concerned about that stuff post baby as much as me… but it’s part of still being me while also being mom and wife and writer and all of the other things.
So there it is! My two big goals for this year! Now it is your turn. What are you planning on crossing off your list? Have you thought about one or two things you’re looking to finish or accomplish or push yourself to try? Teach me your ways oh wise and adventurous ones! And yay reboots and fresh starts!
