I've been trying to write this post for a week.
I'm just going to keep it simple.
Here's my plan for 2012.
I am tired of being "too busy" to spend meaningful time with the people that I love. I've scaled back on my volunteer commitments -- I will return to an active community engagement later. For now, I have Jack and Durel and my parents and my dear friends to love. Doing that makes my heart full.
I like reading books. I am going to read more of them. I like reading blogs. I am not going to read more of them, per se, but I am going to focus on following my favorites, leaving good comments, and being a good participant in the bloggy world that I have come to love so much. (Thanks, Twitter.)
I love my blogs. I am going to keep doing them. Also, I'm probably going to change them. As I grow as a writer and blogger, the blogs grow, too. Stay tuned. I am so happy that I write on a daily basis. Because that's all I've ever wanted to do since I was a child. Truth.
The 3M half marathon is on January 29th. I won't be there. I'm not ready. Honestly, I have been too over-committed to train properly. But, I am delighted to say that I will be at the Zooma half marathon on March 31st. With two of my dear friends, I might add. I am making time to train, and so are they, and it's awesome. (Refer to #1. This is quality time with friends. Rock on.)
I'm cooking healthy food. I am getting more sleep. I am drinking more water. I am being more present in each moment. I am "being" well. And, hard as it can be, I am being honest. With my time, my commitments, and myself.
2012, I like you.
Hope you like it, too.
