Hindsight is a powerful thing, it reminds you of all the great times and teaches you things that could be done differently.
Starting the year in Tasmania, adventuring around the state, returning home with barely enough money to pay bills. It was an exhausting start to the year. Living from week to week, hemorrhaging large sums of money to pay for a sea-change and a wedding. It’s enlightening to look back on that time and experience such relief that we are not in this situation now.
2012 also brought some adventures:
- Hiking the overland track, Tasmania
- Getting married
- Adventures to Hawaii
- Hiking the Great Ocean Walk
- Getting settled into a new area
- Starting this blog
- Roller Derby
Life’s an adventure, and generally I’m not one to make resolutions, I figure that if you can’t change throughout the year then what makes January the 1st any different, but this year one word seems to stick in mind. I want 2013 to be about adventures. Big, small, expensive, cheap. I want to live life as an adventure, not feel like I’m moving from one to the next.
So on the way home from Tasmania yesterday, we created a list. A small list, with only 25 things (not counting the 8 wineries we want to visit). So that every day we can feel like we’re living an adventure.
This is mine and J’s combined list, I obviously have my own goals for this year, as does he. There are things I personally want to work towards, do a photography course, visit Canberra, and J is going to Tasmania for a 2 week sea kayak, but these are things we’d like to do together.
If you could pick one word to describe your goals, resolutions, plans for 2013, what would it be?
