Posting my reflections on my year is something I’ve been doing for several years now. It is always a good exercise for me – it helps me have clarity on the year, and gives me a sense of where I’m headed. Here are my thoughts on 2010:
Last year I didn’t make any particular resolutions. This year I want to maintain healthy eating, exercise and rest habits. I also want to grow in patience and love toward people.
3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
4. Did anyone close to you die?
Yes. We had a miscarriage several months ago. Even though it was early, and we didn’t feel that connected with the baby and pregnancy, it was still extremely sad.
5. What countries did you visit?
March 1st, the day we officially became homeowners.
Taking risks and pursuing new things, such as starting my first book.
Being undisciplined with eating and exercise, and losing my temper with my son.
My iPhone 4.
My husband, for surviving multiple surgeries and 4 awful months on crutches.
No one in particular.
Our house mortgage.
Spending Christmas in Hawaii with my family.
“Nothin’ On You” by B.o.B.
a) happier or sadder?
b) thinner or fatter?
c) richer or poorer?
Happier, neither thinner nor fatter, and a little bit poorer.
Running and reading.
We went to Hawaii for three glorious weeks. We spent Christmas day with my horde of aunts, uncles and cousins, playing games and eating an insane amount of food.
We’re going to host friends for a night of games and drinks.
Yes, with Words With Friends.
None, which is certainly a good thing.
The Artist’s Way, by Julia Cameron.
Bruno Mars. Everything about his voice is awesome.
A good, non-frumpy-mom haircut.
The superpower of time travel.
I turned 29 on January 18th, and celebrated with my fantastic friends.
Steve not having a knee injury in February.
Rihanna + vintage hippie + jeggings + statement accessories.
My weekly time at the park with my girlfriends and their little kids, my friend Chante, and breath prayer.
Katy Perry, skanky outfits and all.
Most politics annoy me. So…everything.
Certain friends who I don’t see that often.
Marriage can help you thrive even during the most trying times.
40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year.
