Why hello, 2013 — it’s nice to see you. It’s sort of a nice to think of you as a fresh slate, new beginnings, with lots of wondering what will be around the next bend in our paths. But on the other hand, I’m also looking forward to a little bit less…change.
This past year was a pretty big year of ‘no limits’ — of letting go of preconceived boundaries and just going for it. And ‘going for it’ we (‘we’ as in #teamsutera) did, huh? Two job changes, lots of ups and downs for the hubs on the job front too, the introduction of one of my favorite jobs – as instructor at barre n9ne — all while spending a giant portion of our year training for our first marathon. All of this change has been GOOD and NEEDED and WELCOMED change — but with change comes lots of upheaval, lots of embracing un-routine, and lots of thinking, wondering, waiting — all of which has required patience and endless faith.
Like I said, 2012 was a pretty awesome year in many ways — but it was also an exhausting year. Let me be honest, #teamsutera is tired. It almost feels like 2012 was one giant marathon (both literal – ha, and figurative) and we’re coming down from that looooong training high.
Over dinner the other night, Scott and I got to talking about 2013 and we both agreed — while we’re both huge fans of goals, we’re looking at 2013 a little differently. While we’re both in that ‘think big’ mindset which runs through all that we do — it’s who we are, really — we’re both ready to embrace the little things this year, little moments, little victories. Being more present, even more intention-driven and yes, a little bit less hard-and-fast goal driven.
It might sound like an oxymoron to you, but it makes perfect sense to me — for 2013, we’re both thinking big *and* small. Now don’t let me fool you, the ‘big’ and ‘small’ will take many forms, this much I can guarantee — it’s how we roll, am I right?? 😉 But 2013: Can you get on board with this mission of ours please? We’d both greatly appreciate it. 😉
Cheers friends, make 2013 your own, mmk?
