2012

Sunday, January 8, 2012

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. 

Love.  

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.

Read.  

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.)

Write.  

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.

Run.  

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.)

Be.  

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.

  1. Now this is a good plan. I like every bit of it. When Ike was born, I resigned from every single volunteer commitment I had. I had a lot of guilt over that, but I knew that my family needed my limited time. Someday I can get back to it, you know, when Ike has no time for me any more!

    I am very excited to see changes in your blogs as they come. You are such a good writer, and I love reading all of your posts, no matter what the topic.

    And running. I am psyched that you are keeping up with it and keeping the goal in mind, even if it is a little bit later than you planned. I ran 4 times a week before I got pregnant. Now I run never and I need to get back!

    Here's to 2012!
