I've been feeling a little quiet in my Trimommylife world lately. It's not that my life is particularly quiet, it's just that I haven't had a huge desire to write about it. And it's certainly not that I haven't been thinking a lot about what to write.
This time of year, of course, there is a huge emphasis on reflection of the past year and resolutions/goals for the new year. I've been thinking a lot about what my focus is going to be in the coming year, both personally and in terms of sport. I feel like everything is very hazy in my mind right now, so I'm not feeling ready just yet to put anything down in writing.
I didn't write a Wonderful You Wednesday post this week, but one of the things that came to mind in thinking about it was that I might resolve this year to not change something. I mean, we always tend to focus on the things that need improving or the things that need to be different. For a moment today, I tried to focus on the things that I do really well. I tried to think something that I would resolve to not change.
This was hard for me because I think it is in my nature to always push to perfection...and, clearly, I am not perfect. Quite frankly, my imperfections exhaust me. This time of year I get really caught up in the reflection, and always feel like there are so many things I can do better...I can be a better mother, a better friend, a better wife, a better daughter, a better coach, a better...you get the picture.
One of the things that jumps out at me though, is that I want to continue to be the person who is encouraging and smiling and cheering at every race that I am in. I never want that to change no matter how competitive I am. I love that about me.
Another thing I've been thinking a lot about is something I heard on the radio. I like to listen to KLove in the car, and they were talking today about choosing a word for 2011 instead of making resolutions. I really like this idea, and I'm pretty sure I know what my word is going to be. I'm still thinking and praying about it though, because I want to be sure it's the right one.
So, in thinking about your year that has past and the one that is coming, what is the one thing you resolve to not change?
