There is something refreshing about a new year. We scrummage around looking for our old resolutions while thinking of new ones.
For me, 2013, was a year of experience. I had the highest highs and some of my lowest emotional lows. I accomplished things I’ve always wanted and dealt with things I never expected. Facebook gave me my “Year in Review”, but I didn’t like it. It didn’t encapsulate my vision of 2013. So here is my own year in review:
I moved three times.
I became a teaching yoga instructor.
I ran my first 10k.
I got engaged.
I flirted with depression.
I made my own website.
I got good at down-hill skiing.
I became a professional at public transportation.
I explored the levels of rejection.
I found the courage to not cook with a recipe.
I learned to navigate two different cities.
I got a credit-score.
I became unafraid of public speaking.
I started meditating.
I practiced yoga for 2 years straight, minus one day, 10/4/13.
I’m kinda sorta more adaptable.
I knitted a hat.
I bought renters insurance.
I realized its okay to use support, not just be support.
I loosened my infallibly tight hamstrings.
I am a co-owner of a couch.
So many experiences. I feel like less of a rookie now. I feel like I’m starting to fill out as the definition of myself. I’m stronger and scrappier. I’m finding more things to love and releasing things I don’t.
I feel like I’m crossing the 2013 finish line able to surrender the whole year to the universe. I’m the rookie of the year 2013. I can take anything now.
2014, come at me, bro.
