I am so excited. When I pull myself out of the fetal position, I am so excited. :)
If New Year's Eve is insight into how your new year will go, I will get more rest in 2013. :) I was in a coma a good hour before the new year rang in. My name is Heather, and I am no party animal. I am okay with that. :)
I am resolved to get more rest...good rest...in 2013. I have treated my body poorly in the immediate past, and I will do better, be better to the shell protecting my mind, heart and soul. I got a running start (pun intended) this past week. I am already feeling better. Big smile. :)))
This new year, for me, isn't just about feeling better....it is about being a better me. There was so much I loved and learned in 2012...about myself and others...I really, truly want to build on those lessons. I want this year to be about renewing and rediscovering the very best things about myself and the life I lead. I want to spend a lot more time championing others...the family I love, the friends I adore, and the people who make my work in this world matter. I want to spend more time writing about the things that matter to me...things I believe in...things I am passionate about; I want to make a bigger difference in the world around me. I want to spend a lot more time living my life and less time surviving my life. I believe it is time for Heather Ruth to hang up the suit of armor...and the Wonder Woman cape...both of which I failed at miserably...
It is long past time for this girl to grow up and simply be a woman in this world...walking her individual path...wherever it may lead...roads less traveled and all...;)
So...here I am at the beginning of a new year, a new month, a new...really, a renewed life. Anything can happen...and that makes me very happy and very glad.
I have no resolutions, but I do have a list of goals for this year...a very long list. Seth Godin would call them intentions. I find that amusing...and supremely accurate. :) I intend to accomplish more of them this year than last, and I started with today. ;)
"We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day." ~ Edith Lovejoy Pierce
So what are you going to do with all of the blank pages that lay open before you?
I don't know about you, but I have a beautiful, optimistic, hopeful feeling about 2013. Maybe it is the Irish in me and the fact that emerald green has been named the color of the year for 2013, but I feel a wee bit giddy about the year that lays before me...:)))
Sunshine Dreams to You ~ Today and Every Day! :)
