I have been on a blogging hiatus for, well, several months. I can’t apologize for it – it was needed. You know that saying “and the hits keep coming“? Well, in baseball, it’s a good thing – In life, not so much.
You name it – medical, financial, professional, personal… In the past few months, I’ve taken hits in pretty much all of those areas. Multiple, repeating hits. I found myself on oh-so-many occasions asking JP “when is it going to stop???”
The good news is, the rapid-fire karma/challenges/lessons coming at me has finally…slowed…down. Not stopped, but slowed. And I’ll take it with a smile, and a very large glass of wine 🙂
This is that time of year when I’m usually writing my New Year’s resolutions. But, if these past few months have shown me anything, it’s that I am so very not in control. Sometimes (ok, maybe a lot of the time), life just happens, and rigid, deadline-d resolutions go right out the window…where they might sometimes land in a puddle and be run over repeatedly.
So no resolutions this year. Instead, I’m setting a New Year’s Theme for myself – the values, ways of being, qualities, I want to embody, encourage, look for this year. My theme for 2014 is:
Foundation (re)building – Getting back to basics, back to what really matters, back to me. It’s not about grand adventures, but rather really enjoying what I have, fostering and being grateful for those wonderful things/people/places that are already in my life. On New Year’s Eve, I sat down and made a list of everything I love about myself and my life. The list ended up being pretty long…so 2014 is already looking pretty good 🙂
