Texpatriate girl's view on life with monkeys, pugs, two wheels, nutella, and a dash of glitter. Sometimes funny, sometimes tragic, and often tragically funny. Most importantly, though, pictures of pugs and monkeys. You are welcome. XOXO
Hello friends. And lurkers. Yes, you, you weirdo in Toronto- I see you checking my blog on an alarmingly regular basis...
Crazy January, yes?
Two weeks ago, it was negative something degrees and I kept finding myself repeating "Winter is coming", a la Game of Thrones. And today, Mid-January, it is a balmy sixty-four degrees. Sixty-four degrees as in I am about to put on running shorts- SHORTS- and go for a run. I have a definite love/hate for this whole global warming business...
Me, I have been busy being. Just being. Not tweeting, not instagramming everything, not four-squaring, not facebooking, not blogging, not even writing. Just being.
I never make them for January first, because I always feel like it then becomes a race to the breaking- see how long we can last before we fail.
Screw resolutions- I had a spoonful of Nutella and Irish Cream in my coffee in protest of resolutions this morning. (The spoonful of Nutella was independent of the coffee, natch).
However, with change in the air, I have been tossing around resolutions for a couple of days. I resolve to run more. I resolve to be more present. I resolve to work on myself and my loved ones. I resolve to drink less wine so that I can run better. I resolve to write more. I resolve blaablaablaa. I resolve to not make resolutions and to just live my life.
After a couple of days of trying out the fit of resolutions on my shoulders, I finally came up with one that works for me.
I resolve to live intentionally each day. THAT, cupcakes, is my resolution. I resolve to be in the moment as much as possible, to live each moment, not through facebooking it or instagramming it or tweeting but instead truly being in it.
Because isn't that something we should resolve to do every morning that our feet hit the floor?
Happy 2013, loveys. I hope it is full of intention and love and rainbow sprinkles.
