Things not done

Yup.  2014 is over.  And these things still aren’t done.

Sometime around 2011 I started talking about blogging and getting better at all social media.  It took until 2013 before I got the blog up.  Literally “learn Twitter & Pintrest” has been on my to-do list for the last year.  Yup, still not done.

Just one of many lists it didn't get crossed off on.

In April a friend gave me a new binder just for all my recipes.  I started reorganizing them sometime last summer.  Yup, still not done.Recipes

In March I started a new strength routine.  I asked my fellow personal trainer what a reasonable goal would be.  He said to be able to jump half my body height and deadlift twice my body weight.  I wanted to be able to do a handstand and a muscle up. I was totally going to be able to post my accomplishments by 2015.  Yup, not quite there.

I got up to 5 reps of 185 lbs.    I can jump on that box if I sneak up on it and don't look it in the eye.

I’m sure there are more things I haven’t quite done.  But I was also going to write this blog post sooner…

The truth is that most things I end up feeling really proud of take a very long time.

Back in 2007 I was going to learn to cook.  It took about four years until I felt truly confident with all my cooking skills.  Now I’ve got more recipes than I can keep track of and I don’t even need them most of the time.

In 2004 I really wanted to like biking.  It took until 2008 before I became a bike commuter and it took 5 years before I started to really like it.  I biked through 5 winters with terror in tears.  Finally this winter I’m really ok with it.

So cheers to another year filled with things not quite done.  I know by now that just because I didn’t get it done doesn’t mean I won’t, and nothing is every really done.
