I can’t believe that it’s already almost the end of January! This month has flown by, but at the same time, it’s been an amazing start to an amazing new year.
For starters, I am (obviously) running during the winter. “Big Deal!” you may say- but this is me we’re talking about here. In the past, winter wasn’t just reserved for bears to hibernate. I literally left my house to venture into the snow once- twice tops. This year, I rededicate winter (strictly) to the bears.
Also, 2011 marks a cornucopia of change in my life. This is my last year of high school, and in six months, it’ll be my first year of college! So, I’ve spent my 2011 doing things that I want to do.
I’m spending more time snowboarding with friends at my favorite (and only) “mountain,” drinking hot cocoa by big fireplaces, reading, writing, trying new foods and types of coffee, laughing, and generally, enjoying a fuller life. It’s weird to say only 17 days into the new year, but I kind of do feel a difference and a sense that next year, things won’t be the same.
So with that, I leave you with the challenge to change something in your life just to see what happens.
