January is a month of possibilities. It is a month of filled with reflections, resolutions, hope, and determination to change for the better.
When I reflect on 2013, I feel quite overwhelmed with how much my life has changed over the course of the past year. Some of these changes have been wonderful, some have been difficult, and some have been both. However, one of the things that I have realised in the past year is how much I value having time to process my thoughts through writing this blog, and how much I enjoy having a record of our adventures. It is also an excuse for me to spend time taking pictures, which is something that I really enjoy (even if it is just pictures of food and day-to-day stuff). I am disappointed that I have missed out on documenting the past few months as they have happened, and I already feel like I can’t remember what has been going on. Therefore, I am hoping to write some posts looking back at the past few months, but I am also determined to start writing more frequently again about what I am currently doing.
I had hoped to start writing again in earnest tonight with a Christmas re-cap, but when I logged on, I realised that I needed to renew my domain name (www.dishontherun.com) before it expires tomorrow. I also found out that my original domain name (www.ediblepsychology.com), which I had linked to this account since I added the new one, has now expired and is no longer available. I have to admit that I feel quite sad about this, particularly given that I had recently been thinking about going back to edible psychology. However, in a year where I am hoping to simplify things, I am trying to be grateful that I have one less decision to make.
So, for tonight, I haven’t managed to do what I set out to do with a Christmas re-cap. However, I am a firm believer that one of the most difficult things to do when making a change is to get started. And it may be the 14th of January, but I have officially re-started Dish on the Run for 2014.
And, since I hate writing posts with no pictures, here is a picture I took on my phone on our flight back to the UK after Christmas…I love the way it really captures the rays of sunshine.
Happy New Year Everyone!
