Welcome to 2014! Have you made any changes yet today? I hope that at this point in the day I will have woken up before the kids, brushed and flossed, worked out and drunken at least 16 oz of water. Oh, throw in a green smoothie for breakfast too. And the chances of that happening are about as high as they were yesterday- er… yester-year. Like 2.5%.
Over the last week I have been thinking a lot about what changes I want to make this year. And how the last year went. Last year I didn’t make specific resolutions, but instead I made a list of anything I could think of that I wanted to do for myself or for my family- anything I wanted to become or to change or to make. It was a long and lofty list. But I kept it in a notebook and throughout the year I read over it and checked a few things off. Now that 2013 has passed I am really amazed at all of the things that I knowingly or unknowingly accomplished. It wasn’t rigorous or disciplined, but it was keeping a constant eye on the bigger perspective.
I’ve been thinking about 2013 and the dreams that I have for it. I love the act of stepping back and looking at the bigger picture. There are so many thing that I need to work on and want to reach for, but I’m learning that they just won’t happen in one determined day. I want to change, but change takes time. And a lot of self reflection. My resolution for this year is to take more time for that reflection. Instead of spending my “me time” shopping or on the internet, I want to make more time to think and to look ahead. So I’ll be making my list and checking it more than twice and I bet I’ll end up closer to who and where I want to be.
