Last year was so amazing that my resolutions didn’t even do it justice. Sure I volunteered, taught yoga, and designed a few dresses, but most of my resolutions were forsaken in favor of far, far better things. I soul searched, launched my three-month Wellness Resolution, started teaching yoga on a free-lance basis, and even took up playing the harp! It was incredible. Way better than I ever could have hoped for. So I’m dedicating this post to the beautiful things that happened in my life this year, and my hopes for the next one.
I started 2012 by sneaking off to some spectacular speakeasies with my besties in San Francisco,
We did some snowshoeing in Colorado,
and drank copious amounts of vino in Sonoma.
I watched my husband sail in the Huntington Lake regatta,
enjoyed a hazy summer day in Vail, Colorado,
and hiked the beautiful mountains overlooking Park City, Utah.
I brought 6 beautiful high-school girls to Young Life camp this year, where they all too happily pied me in the face. Not once, not twice, but three times.
We went on an incredible backpacking trip in Desolation Wilderness. Good friends and a gorgeous lake makes for a beautiful long-weekend. We will be back. Mark my words!
Along with my fabulous foursome, we ran the Lululemon SeaWheeze half-marathon in Vancouver, British Columbia. It was my first half-marathon and will be my second as well. Yep, we’ll be there again this year!
Then of course, we made the trip to BC even MORE bomb by hiking Big Chief in Squamish. Soooo many sore legs.
So what could that possibly leave for 2013? Only the best stuff on earth (and I’m NOT talking about Snapple). Yes I want to run this beautiful business, help people live happier, healthier lives, and even make some mula while I’m at it. I want to make a difference in the world, work on some tricky yoga poses, and practice my harp like a madwoman. I will continue to volunteer with Young Life, read the bible, and attend yoga classes religiously. But I refuse to make a resolution. Not because there aren’t things I want to accomplish, I’ve got millions of those, but because I know that my messy little brain can’t possibly come up with all the wonders that will happen in my life this year. Regardless of the goals I make or don’t make, what happens will be a direct result of where the world takes me, not where I take the world. So I’m grateful for this journey, and for the resolutions I can’t make or keep but will happen nonetheless. I’m so game for wherever this year takes me. Looking forward to it.
Do you make resolutions? If so what are they??
