No matter who you are or what you do, it is always good to reflect on the happenings in your life over the course of the year and set goals for the next one.
2012 was an interesting one for me, both personally and professionally. It started out great, went really sucky and wonky in the middle, then ended on a great trajectory … Going into 2013, I am fired up — and feeling slightly daunted by all the work there is to be done.
Toward the end of the year, I had to do some pruning. Home, work and blog were completely out of balance. I couldn’t seem to find a good routine or rhythm for all I needed and wanted to do. So I had to let go of some things, people and projects to make room for others. Because I am smart enough to know I can’t do everything and do everything well.
I can already see that 2013 is going to be a year of more personal and professional growth for me. Yet I sense it will be different than anything I thought. I’ll have to define and redefine myself at the same time as I establish deeper roots in some areas and plant new seeds in others. Relationships will be tested and boundaries will be pushed. I pray I’m really ready for all of it … And I’m always excited to share the journey with you.
