With the transition from one year to the next, comes reflection and resolution. This often can lead to me looking at the resolutions I made at this time last year, and if I didn’t meet all of my goals, becoming disappointed in my apparent failure. Yet as the first day of 2014 comes to a close, I recognize that this isn’t the lens through which to view my past, or evaluate my future. Often I have accomplished even more than I initially resolved to do, and if I were to focus on those success, my evaluation of the previous year would look quite different.
Nearly at the summit of Roraima!
So in 2014 I hope to dream dangerously and to draw closer and be amazed and to feel. I vow to be proud of my successes and mistakes, and I hope to make great mistakes because in doing so, that means that I’m pushing myself and truly living out my wildest dreams.
