(Above: A peek at where my brand is headed in 2013. So much excitement!)
I love the exhilaration of strong beginnings and the intoxicating feeling that anything is possible. New Years is my favorite day of the year, and I usually spend it with a cup of coffee, a grateful heart, a clear head, and a journal. Goal setting is something I am usually SO EXCITED to do, that I could do cartwheels in the backyard for 30 solid minutes and still have excitement left over to set goals.
January 1, 2013, however, was not my typical New Years Day. It was grey and cold outside. I was sick. My head was totally fuzzy. I was off my game. And that description would continue to sum up the first few weeks of January.
But I’m actually really thankful that this year didn’t start perfectly. It’s easy to do the right things when life is going well–you know, like work out, eat healthy, get plenty of sleep, read the Bible, stay committed to goals, etc. But an opportunity for greatness is found in the not-so-perfect days. Will we accept it? It may not be shiny or eye-catching or tweet-worthy, but we grow when we choose to engage on a not-so-perfect day (or week, or month).
This is what I’ll be engaging this year–on good days and bad. Here’s my 2013 vision–these are the big, overarching themes that I want to focus on throughout my year.
- Shift to film photography :)
- Become a morning person
- Run a half-marathon
- Focus on friendships and family
- Read at least one book a month
- Travel to Paris with my husband
