2018.... Wow!!!!

A vine peaks through from the neighbours 
I am so excited about this year... 2018 is going to be fun, full of activity, and a year of new things. I'm not making resolutions, I'm just putting out my intentions.

2017 was kind of like a year in limbo... surgery - waiting for recovery... study - waiting for the end.... working - waiting for the rewards... but then it was a year of big things.. overcoming pain, rehab success.. travelling, climbing big big hills (mountains) in Nepal, and progressing professionally. And in the past 8 days, while on holidays at home, I rode more than 420kms!

This year I'm working on balance.. I have done half a MBA (I've been doing 3 subjects a year so 2 more years to go), but am in the process of reviewing that. I'm not enjoying it, uts not challenging me, and I'm not really convinced I need this. What's the point of devoting valuable life time to something you dont get joy out of? Plus, its costly..

So I'm really excited about how much energy I will have this year for new things... and the things I love. Being physically fit and well, having brain space, and having time... thats all exciting!

I dream of spending more time in my garden, riding my bike, walking my dog, and spending time with friends. I want to take a few trips this year too...a big trip to India to visit my friends and the girls at Barathi Girls hostel, and a few shorter trips to visit friends and family in other states... I want to go camping, bush walking, and kyaking... I also want to go to the theatre and see some more live shows.. As I write this I feel my energy rising.. its exciting.

So here I go, head on to 2018!
