I still coming up for air and 2012 is a goner.
Hold on to your seats kids, this ride is about to get funkier.
But seriously, 2012 was a year of complete upheaval in my life, so rather than doing a retrospective, I'm going to look forward to 2013 and many life changes.
In 2013 I'm moving to Portland, OR. Yep, one more move, but this time we're settling down. (I hope)
There will be at least one less student fighting and slaving away trying to complete a PhD (moi). My sister is coming to stay with me for a whole year (this is a good thing).
And I'm planning more changes at a more individual level. These are heartfelt goals that I intend to use as a guide not just resolutions to discard by March. I plan to live a more focused, intentional life.
I vow to:
Be kinder and more accepting of others.
Smile more and more often.
Listen more and speak less.
Make the time for those I love.
Stop and think positively.
Reach for a minimalist approach (i.e. get rid of "stuff" cluttering my life).
Organize different aspects of life.
That last one includes planning the blog and posting more regularly. More to come on that.
Here's to a new year.
