The whole new year a new you always annoys me a bit. You aren't going to be a whole new you just because the calendar moved another day forward into a new year. Is it even realistic to expect the way you have been to just change over night? I can't buy into that. I can be a better me, but let's face it, I am 38 years old and at this point I am pretty happy with the way things are. That doesn't mean I don't have room for improvement because I do. It just means I don't want a new me.
I have goals of course. Like running three half marathons, doing speed work once a week, etc, but I haven't got them all down yet. It seems like the end of the year was so crazy I just didn't have the time or energy to get them wrote down.
I do have a phrase I found that I love "Find joy in the journey" Usually finding joy isn't hard for me. I have two wonderful children, that make my clean house messy in less than 5 minutes and I live in beautiful surroundings. I consider myself a glass half full and is about to be refilled kind of person... usually. Till things aren't going my way of course and then I have to remind myself to find joy in the moment and that no one but me controls my own attitude.
I started out the new year just how I ended it.. with a run of course. Although I admit my run on the 31st was a struggle and the run on the 1st was a breeze. I feel like that is starting 2016 on the right foot for sure!
of course the run on the 3`1st may have been a struggle since it was on a road that was completely drifted over and the wind was super brutal.
What is a goal you set for the new year? New year, new you or same old you?
