Like a foggy meadow, there’s limited visibility in a new year. But one thing is clear:  it’s going to be beautiful.

I’m not too big on setting New Year’s resolutions.  If I realize on January 2 or December 31 or any time in between that there is something I should or should not do, why wait until that shiny ball drops to change? 

That being said, there is something exciting about a new year – a fresh start.  As my birthday is just after New Year’s, each January is a double-whammy of a new chapter.  How do I want this year – 2012 and my 27th – to be written?

  • I want to be healthy – physically fit, eating food that is good for me, and balanced in my personal, professional, and mental well-being.
  • I want to be more patient.  With the people I love (who, let’s face it, are always the first to feel the brunt of a bad day), with the people who call or stop by at work when I’m right in the middle of what my mind has deemed the-most-important-thing-in-the-world (even though it’s not), with the slow walkers in the mall.  Life doesn’t need to move at the speed I seem to think it needs to move.  Stop and smell the lavender (I’d rather smell lavender than roses). 

And that’s what I’m going to focus on this year.  I won’t be perfect in my pursuit of those things, but I can be better than I was in 2011.  Which is enough.

What do you want your 2012 to look like?

  1. And this is why you are destined to be an amazing blogger. This blog, right here. The first two sentences, in particular.

    What do I want my year to look like….I don’t know. I want it to be exciting and adventurous. I want to spend time doing things for me–a Bible study, a running group, reading more. And I want to spend time focusing on being thankful.


    • Haha… favorite training ever was when you and I were running for B2B back in 2010! Anytime you want to run, you just let me know. Even if sometimes you pull an “Okay…maybe” on me! :)

  2. First I would like to say that I love your blog!

    Second, what do I want my year to look like???? Well, I would like to succeed in having a healthy lifestyle from food, to exercise, and to the people I choose to associate with (ie. you are a perfect start to that) :) I would like to accomplish my goal of a half marathon (or maybe I should start small with a 10K and work up to a half for 2013)… I’m sure there will be more wants as the year rolls on, but these are what I am currently focused in on.


  3. I am behind on commenting! For some reason, I couldn’t find your blog after I thought I followed it. Oopsie.

    I want to have a happy, healthy, successful in love and career, adventuresous year!
