A Toast to 2014

2012 was the year for tough decisions; 2013 was for tough conversations, getting real about the status quo. 2014 feels like what I’ve been preparing for. I’m committed to investing in myself, making sure I am doing what needs to be done in order to get where I want to go. The back half of 2013 was all sorts of amazing so I feel like that’s good to build off of. About 6 months ago, I heard someone say to let go of excuses, excuses aren’t getting you what you want. It shifted a lot for me because yes. So true. And this year, this whole entire 2014, is for being firmly rooted in who I am, getting out of my own way and making shit happen.

You know how when something good happens to you, your response is “Oh, I’m really lucky” or “I worked really hard” or “Aww gee”? I hate that. No. Good things happen when you get after it and the response is “Yep, I created that.” More of that in 2014, right?

So cheers to you and 2014 and having every decision, action and intention get us where we want to go.

Sunshine State of Mind

One 8am flight out of O’Hare and a ride with a very chatty driver named Tim and I’m in Florida with my grandmother.

We had Mother’s Day dinner at the beach tonight and a beautiful sun set marked the occasion.  My intention for this trip was to get out of dodge for a few days and really slow down so I can see where I’m going so fast again.  Spending time with my grandma is works well with that- for as amazing as she is doing, her 94 years on this planet has finally affected her pace.

It’s only 4 days but my mission (and I choose to accept it):  palm trees, long talks with my grandma, vitamin D courtesy of a hot sun and being a little more still than usual.
