New Year, New Me

Resolutions:  the act of determining upon an action or course of action.  I used to make New Year's resolutions.  I'd be pretty consistent for a short time, and then I'd forget about it.  I wasn't ever one of those people who resolved to lose 10 pounds, or quit smoking (because it's not something I've ever started!), but I have made resolutions to change attitudes, or lifestyle, or adopting certain behaviors.

One thing is consistent:  I repeatedly vow, and fail, that I'm going to blog consistently.  I do everything else consistently---pray, train, eat, bathe, love on my puppies, communicate with family and friends, attend church, volunteer---but sometimes the blank canvas and the vulnerability with which I try to put myself out there is MUCH scarier than making a lifestyle change.

I know it's not a contest.  I'm not going to have 18,000 followers, and run contests, or even ever become sponsored.  And I'm pretty okay with that.  Instead, I'm going to focus on the things that I love---baking, reading, praying, volunteering, my puppies, and my friends and family.

2013 is going to have lots of fun and exciting things going on.  New and scary and big adventures.  Lifestyle changes, family changes, fitness changes.  I'm going to have success in some areas, and areas for improvement, and hopefully enjoy the process.

I can promise complete honesty and transparency, but I don't know that I'm ever going to be one of those people who can blog five times a week, or at least until I have some new and exciting things to write about. :)

Until the next time...which may be tomorrow, or may be next week?!
