Last year I decreed that I would no longer make new year’s resolutions. Instead, I choose to reflect on those areas of my life that I sense need some attention. With that in mind, here is my one and only 2014 New Year’s Intention:
That’s it. Just get motivated. I figure it’s pretty all-encompassing and, in so many ways, it’s an intention that I want more than anything to realize.
2013 was a year spent in survival mode. One day at a time became a literal way of life. And while the ‘just get through one more day’ mentality kept me moving forward through the year, it didn’t leave much room for accomplishments. Now, I want that to change. I want to want to get healthy. I want to want to write again. I want to return the feelings of friendship I clung to last year and rekindle those newer relationships I let slide a bit. And I want to start something new. I started writing because I was in a place where I really wanted a new start and the result was light years beyond anything I could have imagined. I want to get back to writing as the escape I once enjoyed and take on a new challenge a long the way. Maybe I’ll start a new job, maybe I’ll return to school – I don’t know. But I do know that I can feel my juices flowing just thinking of starting a new challenge.
So that’s it. While I continue to love, support and enjoy my precious family this year, I want to get motivated again. I figure updating my long lost blog first thing on the first day of the year, has to be a pretty good start. 🙂
