Every year I have created a New Years resolution about something health related, like practicing yoga every day, or eating more fruits and vegetables, spending more time with family, doing better in school or focusing on me. I’ve never been one to follow through on New Years resolutions. Not because I can’t do it but I forget about what was set for myself in the first place. The year gets crazy with work, school, vacation days, sick leave, and anything that gets you off track.
While with my family over the holidays, I had lots of quiet time to reflect on everything. I realized that in the mist of being so focused on the ring, wedding and marriage, I lost time learning about Andrew, myself and us together. This was such a big disservice that I did to our relationship, and honestly every relationship before him. So this year I’m focusing on learning about us this year, learning about him and learning about us together.
So this year, my New Years resolution is to propose to myself. Because it’s not about the ring. I’m proposing to make more time to learning about myself and putting me first. Focusing on what I want out of my career, and running with the dream of being a yoga studio owner. Focusing on my yoga practice, both on and off the mat. And loving on my fur-baby Bentley every second that I can. I’m proposing to learning more about Andrew and truly taking life one day at a time. There is so much about Andrew that I’ve probably heard him say without understanding, but rather listening to respond. So I’m proposing to actually learning about him, and growing with him as a pair. Life is too short to forget about the days that were given and each moment we can experience. I’m proposing to love fearlessly. And find patience in the challenges.
2015 – I truly can’t wait to see what you reveal.
