Every year, like many people, I make a new year’s resolution. Often this involves looking back on my year and seeing what needs change. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Either way, it involves looking back, and that’s not always a good thing. Don’t get me wrong – I am all about bettering myself, changing and improving, etc, but I am kind of over looking behind me. I want to look forward. I’ve been in the past, I was there when it was the present. I lived it, I learned, and now it’s time to move on. The change has and continues to happen.
Don’t let me sway you, resolutioners. If you’ve made one – awesome! Use what works for you and motivates you. I am not one to judge the influx of people who flood the gyms in January. Come and join if you’re nice! Make those changes, go on with your bad self. Just let me see what works for me.
This year I decided to make a dedication for the upcoming year. Consider it a theme for what I want the year to go by. Sure, I have wishes for the year – health, happiness, treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy, and so on – but I want to focus on positively effecting my year. I decided my dedication should be just a single word, so I came up with one: ADVENTUROUS.
When did I lose my sense of adventure, or of endless possibility? When did I make my dreams smaller? So here I am making a dedication to help that: I will be adventurous this year. I will take risks and leaps, boldly go forward strong in my beliefs, and cut a path for myself and my family that goes in many directions. We will enjoy every ounce of life, every bit we can squeeze out. We will not wait to enjoy it, we will seize the day. I will continue to wear a bikini, drink wine on a weekday, and take bubble baths whenever I want. I will also let Harry stay up too late, watch the Harry Potter movies even though he’s a toddler, and instill in him that the sky is not the limit, because there are none. Come on an adventure with me, friends!
