I’m a little weird in that this time of year, I’m not making a list of resolutions for the upcoming year. I’m more prone to do that in April on my birthday–I like the idea of re-assessing when your personal year turns over. And even then, I don’t like the idea of creating a laundry list of ways to improve yourself. I’m certainly not perfect…but I’ve spent a lot of years cultivating my own little brand of not perfect.
Instead, I like to look at January as a time to start fresh and make a wish list. Where do I want to go? What do I want to do and see and create? What do I want to learn–not because I should, but because I want to?
I want to go…To Washington, DC. I’ve never been!
I want to…Move more. After taking a year off of running because of illness and injury, I’m ready to be active again. I’m not sure if it’s going to be running or yoga or barre class but I’m excited to get back into it!
I want to see…More of my local world. I live right outside of Atlanta, and I can tell you A LOT of things to do with kids. I’d like to find some new local restaurants and maybe even venture out to the Georgia coast and get to know it a little better.
I want to create…Well, words, of course! But I’d really like to create a more simplified and streamlined space to live in. Maybe it’s just the post-Christmas piles that are making me feel closed in, but I’m ready to do some purging.
I want to learn…Italian. I’ve always wanted to. I took in college but didn’t retain much, and I’d really like to get a better grasp on it. And I’d love for JC to pick up a second language at a young age.
What’s on your wish list for 2015?
