2020 Wishes

January 01, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

It feels so weird to be typing out 2020. I feel like my life changed more in the last 10 years than in my entire life. I honestly never thought I would make it this far. I really didn't.

I have a list of goals, as usual, some I will share and some I won't. I don't have anything huge planned. This past year has sucked so much out of us that I really don't want to make any lofty goals. My daughter should graduate college by the end of the year. I will be scrimping and saving to help her with school and hopefully make her graduation gift dreams come true. That won't be until 2021. There is a lot to do around the house and honestly I just want to hang home as much as possible.

I would however like to...

  • Get back to regularly exercising.
  • Drink more water. I mainly only drink water anyway but I need to drink much more of it. I did so well for a while.
  • Finish hiking all the canyons in Georgia. One left, my nemesis.
  • Day trip to Birmingham to knock off a couple of lingering bucket list items.
  • Keep trying to concentrate on the little things that bring me joy and stop comparing myself to others.
  • Kart-racing!
  • Shoot more film.
  • Nurse my shoulder back to health so I can use the kayak more often.
  • Family time. Keeping up our once a month family/framily dinners is super important. I had two fantastic visits this year with my niece and my sister. I am really enjoying the time I spend with my daughter these days. All of these things seem to be the things that bring me the truest joy. Life isn't about things, it is about relationships.

All of the stress I have been under the last couple of years really took a toll on me physically. My hair began to fall out. I decided it was time to stop all processes to my hair. No dye, no heat, no chemicals at all. It has taken a long time to get to the point I am now and I feel like a whole new person. My hair is healthier, and who knew I had such great curls! All my life I wished I did not have to style my hair. Now I don't do anything to it and I get more complements then ever. I guess gray really is the new blonde. I have been asked what color I use to dye my hair and if I have a perm. So funny. Of course even though I love my new silver locks, it does age me with the millennials. I guess you finally get to the age that you just don't care anymore. Not that I ever was big on approvals, seems all the kids these days are into all the things that we were into at their age. I hope to continue to feel more comfortable in my own, true, skin this year.

I hope all of you reading this have a great New Year. We can do this!
