I welcomed the new year in the perfect setting: surrounded by friends and gorgeous scenery, playing games, dancing, laughing, doing yoga and hiking and just taking it all in.
New Year’s Eve I ran 20 miles around the Willamette in below-freezing temps and had a perfect run. Then, we drove up to our friend’s cabin on the Washington side of the Gorge in the afternoon where we had a wonderful weekend.
I set my intention for the year as Positivity. This year, I become an optimist again. I know things aren’t always going to be easy, but I will always keep my hand on the thread of joy that runs through life. I’ll choose love over fear. I’ll keep a smile on my face and I’ll be grateful for all that I have.
Are you with me?
