Snow, yes snow, fell at the stroke of midnight, welcoming 2015 to Arizona with style. Snow is rare in our parts, so it was a thrill to have nature’s confetti as part of our New Year’s Eve celebration. This morning, my friend shared this picture of our snow-covered Superstition Mountains. Fresh. Clean. New.
On January 1, 2014 I was twenty pounds heavier, often exhausted, and I was missing my daughter and her husband. That day I blogged about Sittin’ on the dock of the bay and waiting to see how our family’s story would unfold.
When we’re newly married and when our kids are young, we plant seeds of thoughts, emotions, values, and habits. We worry and we wonder. Then we worry, wonder, and wait some more. Today, I’m not waiting. Today I’m free to move forward with speed, passion, and confidence because this past year produced fruit. Beautiful fruit.
I have no reason to worry or to be afraid. Fear can become a bad habit, in as much need of breaking as skipping breakfast, not exercising, or staying up late.
I resolve to be brave. I resolve to be mentally tough, emotionally wise, and to work my tail off. Social media friends, you are a big part of my fearless 2015 plan. You share great information, encouragement, and support and I want to say yes to you and your gifts.
Likewise, I want to give you my best. I’ll pick up my social media presence this year with more content related to what has helped me and my family to heal, endure, and thrive. Look for more posts on how to eat well, exercise smart, and sleep soundly. I’ll share tips on how to manage time, get stuff done, and be confident in accomplishments big and small.
And I can’t wait to write more about relationships and love. Because love is the means and the end. To love big is to be brave.
What do you resolve for 2015? What fears will you stare down? How can I and other social media friends help?
