I woke up last week and realized that 2019 was here. 

I know, I know…it has already been around for a few weeks. But, let’s say last week I became WOKE. (Not in the sense that I am now politically aware, but just that I became personally aware.) And, I panicked. Sheer terror. Why you ask? Because it became abundantly clear that I have work to do. 

Physical, Emotional AND Intellectual.

The good news is I have begun.

I am not so much thinking of this as resolutions. Even though, I guess maybe that is what they are. I kind of like to think I am not really a resolution person, but more that I am the sort that is always setting goals.  I see this as a conscious decision to take time to reflect on who I was and, who I know I am yet to become. Tell me, do you make resolutions? If so, are they comprehensive or vague? Such as get fit vs hire a trainer 2 days a week, take a group x class 1 day a week and stretch at home using YouTube  2 days a week? 

So, why am I doing this? I am writing all of this so that I have a diary of sorts to help me take stock and keep track of my progress. Even though I am fairly private and this feels sort of vulnerable.  (note to self…add take more selfies and feel better about them!)

So, as I am a list maker, I am going to start my list of all things I am determined to work on this year and beyond. (You can check out my list below.)

But, beyond using this medium as a fancy way to make a to do list… I am hoping to journal/chronicle or blog, if you will, my journey. My triumphs, my failures, and even just my daily nothings. I might be journaling recipes, YouTube exercise channels I am loving, new music I have discovered, fashion, or even my latest interest in trying to be a “girl” and learn about make up! (I’m awfully grown up to just start trying to learn about all of this!)

I hope to connect/reconnect with old friends. To make new friends. To have a visual reminder of my daily life. To learn more about myself. To challenge myself. To learn more about others. To be better. 

I look forward to sharing a bit about myself as we go along. And, if you are so inclined, I would love to hear from you.

mad love all! mad, mad love!
