An inventory of 2010

Continuing the tradition

In 2010, I gained weight. Ugh. I’m fixing it. Better news: a new niece and nephew!

I lost my wedding rings. Ooooops.

I stopped doing things backwards when I realized it.

I started investing five minutes to fix the backwards things and do them better. And I started taking brain vitamins.

I was hugely satisfied by many of the ways Zoe is growing and changing. And the way the Street Medicine blue book lecture series went. Oh and a really good run I took with Krystal recently. I actually enjoyed running.

And frustrated by balancing my responsibilities (same as last year).

I am so embarrassed that I got flabby.

Once again, I let my roll get a little too fast.

Once again, I resolved to slow my roll.

The biggest physical difference between me last December and this December is I have straight teeth and my braces are off.

The biggest psychological difference between me last December and this December is I realized I’m 30 and need to think more like an adult.

I loved hanging out with Zoe.

Why did I spend even two minutes worrying about the small stuff?

I should have spent more time being 100% present with whatever I’m doing.

I regret being late to 60% of my scheduled activities. And losing my wedding rings. And being distracted.

I will never regret quality time spent with Zoe.

I worried way too much.

I didn’t exercise nearly enough.

Parenting a three-year-old nearly drove me crazy.

The most relaxing place I went was the Caribbean.

Why did I stress so much?

The best thing I did for someone else was help her understand what’s acceptable and what’s not.

The best thing I did for myself was power through.

The best thing someone did for me was keep me on track.

The one thing I’d like to do again, but do it better, is guide Zoe. (Only one thing?!)

Happy New Year!
