new year, new you?

It's so easy to get excited about the possibilities a new year holds: the chance to make changes, to try new experiences, to shed old habits, to create new habits. I'm not in the habit of making resolutions... that's kind of like annual reviews to me. Address an issue as it comes along, no sense in saving it for the year end and all the build up.

So as I embark on 2013, I'm trying to focus on the positive and the things I want to improve, not necessarily bad things I want to 'fix'. And then my mind starts to wander with the seemingly endless list of things - careers - activities I'd like to try... you know, since you do only get one ride on the merry-go-round and all.

When I grow up, as if, here's what I want to be for my new year, new you: an ESPN commentator. A scuba dive instructor. A travel writer. A photographer. A mentor. A mentee. An FBI profiler. A PGA tour events professional. A pediatrician. A bartender in Tortola. A teacher. A philanthropist. A mom. A wife. An attorney. A pilot. A rancher. A southern belle. An adventurer. An actress. A motivational speaker. An around-the-world sailor. A seasonal ski instructor. A race car driver. A chef. A US Senator.

I guess we'll have to see how the world turns and what comes up on my next spin. But rest assured, I'm going to seize every day and every opportunity I can!
