My only resolution for 2013 has been to Take Care Of Me. Take Care Of Me is a life philosophy more than it is a selfish hobby. When I’m happy, I’m my best self. It’s that simple. I rocked January and now have another month behind me. Let’s see how February went:
Ah, February. I went in with such high hopes. But then I got sick with a cold that lasted for 2.5 weeks (i.e. most of the month). I’m sure you know of other people who got this year’s winter death rattle. It was not pretty. When I’m sick I want to do nothing but recover as soon as possible so most of the month was spent resting, drinking tea, and trying to get healthy. Another thing that kind of sucked about February was that we had a blizzard followed by two weekends full of non-stop snow. All of that pretty much impeded any plans we had and kept us stuck indoors.
Some good February things included John getting a new job (so proud of him!), us taking a mini trip to Atlantic City (the picture above was from the spa), taking on a huge project at work that’s going well, going to the movies a bunch (I saw Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook, Identity Thief, and Die Hard 5), going to a bunch of shows (I saw Fun, New Found Glory, and Desparecidos this month), getting new glasses, and planning a bunch for our California/Oregon road trip in May.
Today is the last day of the month and while I feel like it was a total blur, and kind of a junk month overall, I do feel pretty good about Taking Care Of Me even if it meant just getting over being sick. The second I felt better (around the 18th) I jumped right back in to my routine – going to the gym before work in the morning, juicing, eating healthy, reading, and just generally staying on top of things. That felt really good too. I’m very excited and optimistic about March. Bring it on!
