The Words

:: a simple resolution ::

exploreI am sorry to tell you that I used to be a wayfaring gym member. It’s true. I was one of those people who would join the gym on January first, go to the gym for 2 weeks, maybe a few classes to really get me motivated, and then let the gym take full advantage of my bank account while I let me little barbells accumulate cobwebs. It’s embarrassing, I know. But I have learned my lesson. I won’t do that again. Unless, I REEEEALLY plan on going. 😉

So this year I am trying something new. No gym, no membership, and best of all, this resolution is FREE! I have come to the self realization that I spend a lot of time planning to see other places, moving elsewhere, or just daydreaming of being somewhere else. This, I am realizing is not healthy, and not the best way to live life. Yes, I will eventually be living somewhere else. But with new jobs, we are settling in for a year or so. And that’s that. So this is my new year’s resolution. EXPLORE! Not other places around the world, but my own backyard. I live in such a beautiful part of the country and I totally take it for granted. I don’t appreciate the amazing landscapes I am surrounded by daily. This year I will spend more time hiking, biking, swimming, and just being outdoors; and less time sitting on my computer planning, daydreaming, wishing to be elsewhere.

I will live. here. now.
