The First Post of 2012- and my version of Small talk.
My SEO advisor tells me I’m supposed to blog frequently in order to get my visits up. Ok, here I am. I always assume I should only blog when I have something really valuable to say but I notice that most people blog about silly nothings. And people read their silly nothings. So maybe I should join the crowd. But I don’t live a life of silly nothings. Just like I don’t do small talk. Here is my attempt at small talk.
It’s January 2nd and not a resolution in sight. I had a pretty good year in 2011 and I did most of what I wanted to do. Of course, there is never enough time, many incomplete tasks. But I don’t have regrets. And usually resolutions are about regrets. Things you said you would and didn’t. Goals you set and missed. Pledges you made and didn’t keep. Maybe I didn’t miss any of that because I didn’t make resolutions last year either.
I don’t really see the point. Life is so fluid. How can I determine today what my goals should be in 6 months? Life changes so much. I had lots of surprises this year. I had failures which I hadn’t anticipated but I also had victories that were a surprise. I got on the bike as I planned and had the best season yet. I feel incredibly healthy and strong and I know it’s only getting better. I didn’t write my book but i wrote other good things. I decided most people write books as vanity projects anyway.
I was a pretty good mother although my son disappointed me some- as I disappointed him. But overall, we love each other to death, tell each other everything and are closer than ever. The house is looking pretty good. The dog is happy. My friends have been great to me. We had some struggles and overcame them and our relationships are better than ever.
My work has taken me into some new directions, unexpected paths. All good. Some things i hoped for didn’t materialize but other things did. My faith is stronger and I’ve found a new path. God is good.
So there you have it. My first post of 2012. My SEO advisor will be happy. Not sure anybody will actually read it. But at least I check one thing off the to do list.
