I do not make resolutions. I feel like resolutions are made to be broken. With that said I do make goals. I’m sure you’ve seen the quote floating around that says “if your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough.” I actually took the first step towards a dream of mine the other day. The thought of it scares the hell out of me. I’m not ready quite yet to share it with cyberspace. I need to think about it some more and see if it’s even feasible. I’ll let you know what happens.
I want to run a 10k this year. John already agreed to do it with me while pushing the wilds in the jogger. He took the plunge last year and ran a half. I’m not ready for a half yet. Like I said before I may never be ready. But a 10k, I can do that. The farthest I’ve run is just over 5 miles. I feel like I’m essentially starting from scratch because I have not run competitively since July. Yes, almost six months :( I want to kick myself for not sticking with it. But such is life and all I can do is move forward.
I vow to spend more quality time with the wilds. Stop worrying about dishes in the sink or how disheveled the house is and sit on the floor with the boys. Within reason of course. I’m not talking about totally neglecting my house. I just need to find a balance that works. I think that means getting up earlier. There I said it. I am NOT a morning person. I love my beauty sleep. However, I think once I get back to my healthy habits this will become much easier for me.
I want to get out there and meet people. It took me over a year in Tampa to make friends. I can’t do that again. I need to get out of my comfort zone so I’m not in a lonely place. John travels almost every week. Now it may only be for a day or two but it’d be nice to have girlfriends to fill that time. I miss my friends in Florida so much. I had some awesome people in my life. I can’t wait to say that about Virginia.
So there are a few of my goals for this year. How do you feel about resolutions?
