Well we made it through 2013!!! I hope it was a beautiful year for you. If it wasn't know that we all have been there. Truly.
I know it is cliche but a New Year can mean a lot to people. I know you can start over or begin a new habit(s) any time of the year, month, week or even day but I think there is something beautiful about making new commitments to ourselves.
A few weeks ago I made a bucket list of all the things I wanted to do before I turned 26. I said that list was different than making resolutions but in all reality it really wasn't. Making promises to ourselves is what it is about.
To be honest I haven't really kept up with my bucket list & sure there is shame in that but I like reading that I had high hopes. No matter if we fail or I fail at completing my list I think it is amazing I tried. To get up and TRY to make your life better is brave. I guess what I am saying is that we won't always finish, complete, & win everything we attempt but if we are really trying...if we really want better, sometimes that is enough.
I like being that person who can forgive myself when I fail but always get back up and make more promises and goals. I never give up and I think that is a victory.
So I hope you are kind to yourself with your resolutions. I hope you think through them like I will and try to think up some really meaty ones. Get some really hard ones on that list!! I think it will help too if we all just agree right now that we may not achieve perfect success but if we set out on a journey we are bound to learn something and grow.
Well with that I am going to go get one last run in for 2013 :)
I hope you all have a wonderful New Year!!!
P.S. Stay tuned for updates from San Francisco!!! We leave tomorrow and I cannot wait to get some sun!!!
