Happy New Year!
Well, we all made it through another year. I don’t know about you, but 2014 was a whirlwind for me. I made it through my first year of marriage, traveled to eight different countries, relocated halfway around the world and started a life in San Francisco. Looking back a year ago, I never would have thought I would be where I am today. So I begin to think about this time next year, and get so excited about all the possibilities 2015 will bring.
So like everyone, I have made a few new years resolutions.
One | Travel more. My husband and I are missing the expat life a bit, mostly because of all the travel we did, and all the amazing things we got to see and experience. Don’t get me wrong, San Francisco has dozens of amazing things to see, but I want to explore more. This doesn’t necessarily mean I need a stamp in the old passport every month, but a two hour drive outside of the city to the gorgeous Santa Cruz Mountains or a road trip to Lake Tahoe. I also want to visit our neighbors up north in Portland, Seattle, and even Canada! Yay, passport usage!
TWO | Me time. Starting a new job, and getting the Pilates studio at Equinox up and running has been a huge and exciting challenge. I will be the first to admit I have, more times than not, put that studio and my team ahead of myself. I will continue to do that, because I love my job and my team is absolutely amazing, but I am going to make more of an effort to push the pause button and go on a weekend trip or take a class outside of the studio.
THREE | Make juice. My husband wins. He bet we would not use our juicer that we got as a wedding gift before 2015. We have taken it out of the box, but it is still sitting happily on a very high shelf. I’m not sure what’s holding us back; the huge mess it will make and cleanup it will require, or just simply getting on a step ladder and lifting the huge thing off of the very high shelf. We live in the land of farmer’s markets, and have access to the country’s best fruits and veggies. There is no excuse. We WILL make juice. And it will be delicious.
I don’t like making huge resolution lists, because let’s be honest, it’s way more rewarding to conquer all than just a few. To me, the new year means new beginnings, a fresh start, and most importantly becoming a better, healthier YOU.
