Brooklyn Fit Chick New Year’s Day 2013 Extravaganza!!!!
Today we celebrate 2013 with a new attitude, new goals, a new favorite word and my new theme songs!
(Me & Mah Boo Working on Our 2013 Goals)
As my friend (and brilliant author) Jennifer Gilmore said so well today: “Goodbye 2012—don’t let the door hit you on the ass on the way out!”
Don’t get me wrong—I am not bitter about 2012 but it has been a particularly rough year for my close friends and family. I mean like terrible diseases, hurricanes, robbery, divorce, bankruptcy, multiple surgeries, layoffs and ass hats for clients kind of activity happening in a mere 12 months and would try the patience of Gandhi.
So long 2012—we have had our fun times too and met some super-cool new people but I am more than happy to send you off to a faded memory.
Last night, the biggest party night of the year, I was in bed with a head cold thinking of my New Years resolutions (photo above) and the word I kept coming back to was “finish.” I want to spend 2013 finishing things I have started. Trying that business plan competition one more time until I get the “just right” idea, putting together the standing bike stand so I can ride at home (I bought the damn thing last Christmas!), learning how to properly use my podcast equipment so I can get that out there (two years on my resolutions list) and all of the other things I overlook in my apartment that I know need to get done and yet I turn a blind eye to it.
Enough—it’s time to finish what I started! So that is my word and challenge for 2013. If I knew how to needlepoint I would frame the word “finish” and put it over my desk. (My birthday is March 29th if any of my crafty friends out there need an idea on what to get me!)
In the meantime I am putting it on my wipe board, taking a picture and printing it out. I am going to remind myself every single damn day that when I finish what I start—the accomplishment I feel is incredible.
Now on to the new “theme songs…”
Here are my 2013 theme songs to get me over any personal/professional/family B.S. in the coming months:
- “No More Drama” Mary J. Blige: I resolve to fly above the fray when the drama levels cranks up in my life. “No more tears. No more pain. No more drama in my life.” Indeed.
- “I Love Myself Today” Bif Naked: If you are not aware of this song or the totally amaze-balls Bif Naked then start off with this song. “I’ve had enough. Spit-shine my soul. I’m gonna get up. And out. And out of control!!” Yup.
- “I Don’t Feel Like Dancing” Scissor Sisters: On my darkest days I will make sure to put on this tune and remember that it next-to-impossible to dance and cry at the same time. “So I’ll play along when I hear that special song. I’m gonna be the one who gets it right!”
So enough about me—what about YOU? What will your “one word” focus be? What will be your theme songs? Let’s do this whole 2013 thing as a team!
Together we can accomplish anything!
