I spent a lot of time this year connecting with people, considering whether I still want to be connected, and seeing connections between things. After the Year of More brought more illness, more sadness, and more weight to our bodies, I worried about the downside of the Year of Connection. Well, when we let the world know we were officially buying a beach house (which had been in the works for months), we found out how many connections we had!
A lot of 2009 through 2012 was spent chasing big lifetime dreams. Frankly, 2012 was a very busy year and I am craving downtime. In 2013, I will turn 39 and have much thinking to do about the upcoming 40 milestone. I've launched a successful photography business and need to think about where it is going. We have a second home that will require work before and after rental season.
In 2013, I want to spend time appreciating the dreams that are here. I've been thinking about this ever since my hike with Andrea in March, and now's the time to fully commit.
After much consideration, it feels right to declare 2013:
The Year of Reflection
