I can’t even express how thrilled I am that the holidays are over. This year it was a whirl wind. Our family hosted several get togethers this year in our new home and while it was fantastic to be able to finally show this place off, our grocery bills have been through the roof, our house is upside down and our routine has been totally off. It was like a little gift to myself to see the kids off to school today. I am really enjoying the quiet and am glad to get back to get back on track with the healthy meal planning!
I’m not big into resolutions but this year I do have a few things I’d like to set some intentions for. Firstly, I’d like to try and get running again. Key word here is try. The last time I declared myself a runner I promptly injured my hip in such a way that has given me intermittent low back/hip pain for the last 2.5 years on my right side. Now that things seem to be on the upswing with that, I’d like to give it another go. My intent is not to force myself to run any great distance or speed too quickly. Ultimately I just want to be able to do it without pain. Even if that means my ‘running’ more closely resembles a waddle for now.
The second thing I’d like to do is figure out my plans for the future. Those close to me know that I am still bitching and whining about what the hell I actually want to do with my life career wise. I love photography, and it will always be a part of my life in some form. But I can’t shake the feeling that I am meant to do something different with my time. The issue is that I can’t seem to commit. There are always lots of ideas floating around out there but nothing I’ve felt that I could throw my whole self into 100%. So this year I really want start zeroing in on some life plans and finally start taking the steps to accomplish it this year.
