My early night lent itself to a nice, "early" morning. I was up and going by 9 am. I went to Whole Foods where the parking lot was nearly empty (hallelujah!) and stumbled upon a fantastic hot breakfast bar. I LOVE breakfast-- morning, noon and night, so this just made my day. I grabbed some food, came home, poured a cup of coffee and cracked open my journal.
It was time to set intentions for the new year. I started by writing down what I want this year to consist of. How will I learn, grow and become a better version of myself? I asked myself what the theme of 2013 would be for me. After jotting down several thoughts, I quickly realized what this year is all about for me. FALLING IN LOVE. No, it's not what you think. I mean falling in love with myself. I mean that in the least egotistical way.
So that is what this year is for me. A journey of self-love. An expedition of self-discovery. Growth. Empowerment. Independence. Consciousness. Awakening. Healing. And more than anything...acceptance. This is a year for my spirit.
It's not going to be easy. It's actually quite frightening! I have no idea where to begin. But it's going to be wonderful. It's going to be worth it. And at the end of all this, I am going to be madly in love with myself. And because of that, I will have so much love to pour onto others. Idealistic? Maybe. But that's the only way I know how to do things.
my first run of 2013: snotty, sick, phlegmy miles.
this run did not bring me one ounce of enjoyment as I am clearly still sick.
flu bug, be gone!
