It’s the last day of 2013. For this gal, it feels like the last day of a much longer chapter. Today feels rather monumental.
At some point in the next month, I’ll become a mom. Just a few days ago, I said a temporary, year-long goodbye to the job I’ve held and molded for 10 years. And this is the last new years I’ll ring in as a twenty-something-year-old. See? Monumental.
As I look back on the last decade, I do so with awe. Life gave me so much more than I could have dreamed of. I married my best friend. We bought a house and adopted a crazy cat. I finished my degree and then my yoga teacher cert. We travelled the world and found our home away from home (Nica). I met new friends and held on to old friends – the very best kind (core!). It was a decade filled with adventure.
My goals for 2014 and the next decade of my life (my thirties… woot!):
to be much more open to all of the amazing things life has to offer…
to live my days more deliberately, taking advantage of the breaths I’m afforded…
and to savour each and every croissant.
Wishing you and yours the most magical of years!

Becoming a mom will mean life as you’ve known it is over. Remember that yoga perspective of life being filled with tests? As my wife says, that’s why babies are so cute … to balance the equation.
Oh, my, at least you’re looking at the upheavals as being among “all of those amazing things.” Inhale and exhale, then …
And, yes, it will mean a lot of magical moments as well as many that you’ll look back on with a much different attitude than you had at the time.
Congratulations and best wishes.
Thank you for the beautiful comment! I can’t wait for the magical moments, even if they don’t seem so magical at the time. 🙂 Happy New Year!
