I have enjoyed being home the last week. Our. Christmas was relaxing and the break has been refreshing and rejuvenating. I needed this week of quiet reflection. It helped to have some time without the clutter of school and lessons. I was able to sift through the clutter in my head. As we approach the end of 2012 and the start of 2013, I have had an entire week of reflection.
Part of me was negative about my accomplishments in 2012. And then I remembered how I started 2012. I had my ankle cast removed a few days before and I had a wicked-nasty bout of the flu. I did a lot of learning and growing in 2012. I wish I had better documentations (something I would like to work to improve) but I know I am ending 2012 stronger and wiser than I started it! I am ending 2012 on positive note. I feel good going forward. In the past 12 months, I started to find what makes me happy. I touched the surface to listening and learning and loving and mending.
Instead of a resolution.
This year I have a word.
This year my word is COMMITMENT.
I am making a commitment to myself.
Commitment to: More listening. More learning. More loving (of myself). More mending.
So I am making a commitment to me!
A commitment to remain me, just an awesomer me!
I have been debating what I wanted to do for 2013…..a list of 13, 35 for the year I turn 35….I just didn’t know what or how I wanted to do this post. Then I read a post from my friend Alicia. Alicia is committing to a year of self-worth and has decided to do something once a day, once a week, a month, etc. working towards that commitment.
My commitment to myself, to be me, only awesomer, sounds a lot like self-worth.
So, I borrowed Alicia’s concept and came up with a few things to help with my COMMITMENT!!
Once a day
~self portrait – with one positive word for the day, me, my outfit…something!
~journal (food, activity, mood)
Once a week
~review past week and list at least 3 positive
~at home spa treatment
once a month
~learn/try something new
once every quarter
~walk/hike thru a NJ park or beach
~take a yoga class at a real studio
once every 6 months
~publish a vlog
~weekend with hubs
Once a year
~massage or facial
I must like the number 13. I wound up with 13 different things on my list of “once a… in 2013″ list
I am looking forward to the next chapter in my adventure!
Cheers to a positive, healthy and happy 2013!
