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.
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’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.
