I feel like you can really see the blog seasons show their true colors at the holidays. Its all desserts, happy holidays & well wishes and then ‘light’ and ‘hearty’ potato soups and news years resolutions. What’s up with THAT? Potato soup is meant to be full of cheesy goodness, if you ask me.
And so I’m torn. Between wanting to really enjoy life and be present and the need to document each and every thing. Between wanting to grow and find a voice of my own and wondering if there is a need for my humble cry in a sea full of voice shouting.
I am so grateful for this public/personal diary-each time I read back I remember something I would have forgotten. But there is a touch of falseness too. We don’t typically eat in perfect light and each day isn’t end capped in rainbows and unicorns.
As so, here I am, writing about a list of things I’d like to accomplish in 2013. We have big grown up financial goals (like paying down student loan debt and finally filling up that emergency fund), little goals like moving to a new apartment (which will be aided by all that decluttering), and personal goals, like running a 1/2 marathon again and sew a quilt for our bed.
But what’s more important-I want to see our families more. Watch our niece and nephew grow up more than we have. Have friends over despite the fact I haven’t dusted in 2 weeks. I don’t want to look back at my life and have it be a list of things I checked off of my Pinterest boards.
And that’s an intention I’d like to live into.
