While 2013 has had it’s share of bruises, there were a fair number of highlights to reflect upon as well. I feel as though I have made strides, some very personal, this year in a number of areas. My victories speak only to my own triumphs and may look silly to others, but I gave up qualifying myself a while back.
These things I celebrate about 2013:
Increased the intensity of my workouts and weightlifting – Spent a week at the beach alone – Attempted online dating – Gave up eating gluten and dairy entirely – Advocated for myself to get better healthcare – Started saving for a house and a real vacation – Paid off my car and began saving for a new one – Began to pay down what I owe my parents – Joined the Jr. League – Went to seminars/fairs/events alone – Looked for an accepted a new job – Severed communication with a difficult person and began to make peace with the situation – Began an art journal – Volunteered twice with Fleet Feet Sports.
I have much to celebrate this year.
