It's that time of year when everyone either reminisces about the last year (top blog posts, anyone?) or looks forward to the year ahead. As my son would tell you, "we need to do something EPIC here."
I've been thinking about this post for awhile. I love reading all of those posts.I want to know what your resolutions are for 2013, and what you accomplished in 2012.
Here's the thing. In some ways, 2012 was awesome for me. This year's archives are all about running and yoga. I accomplished things I never even dreamed let alone wrote resolutions about. There is so much good and happy. And yet, for so many 2012 was the worst year on record. So many people I know and care about had a terrible 2012. I was surrounded by grief, illness, sadness and ugliness. My year wasn't the easiest ever.  And yet ... we are all in one piece. And if there's anything I've taken away from this year it's to hold the people in your life closer, tell them you love them, and for goodness sake ... let the little things go! If you can possibly be there for someone, be there.
The truth is, it's pretty amazing for me to say that this year I ran a lot. More amazing to me is talking about the people in my running clinic, the Princess runners,  the pace bunny who got me through my first 10k race.
When I think about yoga, I can talk about some of the cooler poses I can do now, how flexible I am, or how much I love the 90 minute classes. Impressive. More impressive? How much I've learned from my teachers. How I actually listened to what they had to say. How they offered advice when I needed it. And how cool it is to go to yoga classes with my mom.
Do I have resolutions for 2013? Really it can be summed up with the phrase "Just Keep Going!!" I started to save money last year. I want to work on budgeting. I'm cutting back on Starbucks (in order to pay for yoga). I'm running a half marathon (or 2 or 3). But these are all things I already have been doing.
More importantly. My goal is to love more.Give more. Be there more.
And cut out all the silly drama.
So. Here's to 2013. Let's hope this year is Epic!
