So, it’s New Year’s Eve and while I’d love to say I’ve made a list of resolutions, I’d be lying! I don’t really do much of that anymore because I found I’d make these vague resolutions that were never resolved by December 31st. Think along the lines of “I’m going to travel more!”. “I’m going to get in shape”. Uhm, those are all great but I would wander, essentially, aimlessly because I had no plan and by February I’d convinced myself that as long as I was “trying” it counted. WRONG! All the more reason why I don’t resolve for the new year. What I do now is meditate on the year. *clears throat* Yeahhhhh, I’ve had quite the year this year where I’ve cried more than my fair share of tears. While I single handedly kept Kleenex in business, I also experienced a liberation that can only come from learning from those painful experiences. My life has been a roller coaster and while it had a drop like the Kingda Ka (go ahead Google it. I know you want to! lol), lots of twists and turns that left me nauseous, and left my top bun in shambles by the time I got off. I didn’t die. I’m still alive to put on a cute outfit, take a picture, and write about it. Guess that means I’m winning.
2018 will be the year of the Angell (Oh, does my name lend itself to some great cheesy lines). I WILL start training for my half marathon. (For those that care I have narrowed it down to two races with a heavy lean towards one.). I will FORCE myself to take a solo vacation, even if it’s just for an extended weekend. (Ya’ll this is huge because I am Queen Scaredy Cat! Hello, I have a fascination with all those crime shows. Do you know what people can do to a human body when scared of getting caught?!) I digress. I am committing to writing more consistently for this sweet little blog of mine. And that’s all I’m sharing with you for now. lol. I hope that you all will have find the courage to set and be clear with your goals and be even braver to chart the course you need to take to achieve them. I’m approaching 2018 with a spirit that’ll leave it saying…… New Year, Who Dis?
