2012 was my year of being better.
It's also a desire that will continue thru 2013 and I look forward to it.
Some things I'm trying to be better at include being a better wife. Better at juggling the stresses of life. Being mindful. Better at deflecting negativity and the list goes on.
The list goes on because you know just as much as I do that there is a lot we can all be better at.
I've also spent a lot of time evaluating my reactions to certain situations. I ask myself this question a lot, "Is this reaction in proportion to the event?" Talk about getting some perspective. Give it a try sometime.
I've also made a conscience effort to use my words. Sounds elementary, right? I've practiced speaking my mind and not constantly apologizing or being embarrassed for the way I'm feeling. Every emotion is justified. There is no need to apologize for it, but to stand up for it.
I did more things for me this summer. Like completing the Tough Mudder-Beaver Creek! This was one of my biggest challenges yet! It was a blast. I never thought I would be able to push myself mentally the way I did for this challenge. I've never been so proud of myself.
One thing I DO know is that it's going to be a year of home projects because J and I just closed on our first home this past week!
Our new home came with a chicken coop so, there may be some cockadoodledoo-ing in our near future.
Here's to a new year and making 2013 about being better!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
