Cheering on the Cocks at the bar on Monday! Goooooooo Cocks!
It was the perfect way for 2011 to go out. With friends, with a bang, and with sparkles and champagne. A good year deserves a proper celebration. And proper it was.
So, now with 2011 gone... it's time to move forward into a new year. And I'm not really one to make big resolutions, but I do like to set some new goals or paths for myself.
*Running goals... I basically just want to PR the shit out of 2012.
Aside from running I have a bunch of other things that I want to work on...
*One of my main goals is to be a better listener. I am a good listener already. But, I'm not what I'd refer to as a "full attention" listener. I mean, I'm listening... but I'm probably also thinking about what I need to pick up at the store or I'm watching the couple behind you with their ridiculously cute baby. Or I could even be just waiting for you to shut up so that I can finally tell you what I think. So, this is something that I really want to work on. I want to be better at disengaging from distractions and engaging in conversations fully.
*I also want to continue to work on detachment. To not have emotional attachments to things and people. This is something I worked on a lot in 2011 and had success with, so I'm on the right path, so far.
"The correct attitude of our 'possessions' is gratitude, not ownership." B.K.S. Iyengar.
*And as cheesy at is sounds, I just want to be a better person in 2012. I'm in a great place mentally, physically and spiritually right now and I need to figure out ways to spread that wealth.
“…….we believe we arenot making a difference. But making a difference is really about the way you show up in the world everyday. In fact, know it or not, like it or not,you’re already making a difference by your presence. It may be a gooddifference or a bad difference, a large difference or a small difference, butyou had an effect on everyone who saw you, felt you,or heard you today. So the question is not whether you can make a difference, but what kind of difference areyou making?” - Barbara De Angelis*And... I also want to read more books this year than I read last year !
What are you going to do in 2012?
