I imagine the answer is yes, because we almost always hyper focus on what our new year's resolutions will be. In some cases, I'd say I panic.... what am I going to improve, change, or achieve? Well, this year, I'm not stressing. I'm going to focus on things that mean the most to me and do more of what makes me happy.
In my opinion, handstands are one-part strength and one-part faith. You most certainly cannot be afraid to fall. That's where I am right now...afraid to fall. I have the strength but not the faith. So my goal in 2014 is to get that other foot off the wall!
I'm a huge offender of this one. Always worrying... always anxious... always distracted because of it. I need to make an effort to stop worrying about the things I can't change.... the things I can't control. Just accept and move on. Period.
The texts, the emails, the Facebook status messages.... they'll be there tomorrow. Technology makes it so easy to stay "connected" but I need to put it away and "connect" with those that are sitting right in front of me!
If you know me well, you know I'm not a morning person...just ask my posse of running buddies. All my friends know that I'm probably a "no" for the 6am run (OK, I'm a definite no!). And although I may still not indulge you in a run at the crack of dawn, I'm going to work hard at teaching my body to get up earlier.
Yes, this is a carry-over goal from last year. It's not news that I deferred my entrance to the wineglass marathon this past year due to a knee injury. Now I'm on the hook to run 26.2 in October 2014 and I WANT that medal!
Yoga. I do love it...so much! I'm in it for the Shavasana, but yoga truly makes me feel strong, peaceful and focused. Some of my best days start with yoga. There's something about stretching my body and my mind that completely prepares me for whatever comes my way.
Over the past couple of months (inspired by our CCD program) my kids and I (plus friends) have spent time gathering supplies and putting together "Breakfast Bags" for a local soup kitchen. Though it may not seem like much, it means a lot to the recipients and it helps our soup kitchen who serve over 150 meals a day. This year, I want to make sure we do this consistently each month and look for other ways to help those in need.
A gesture, no matter how small, can make a big impact on the lives of others.
