I often share overly personal information about my family on Mostly Teachable, but neglect to share some of the honest to goodness details of my happy life here in the wilds of Southern Michigan. This year I plan to post my photo collection from each Week That Was. To kick off 2013, I thought I’d go back into my vault and share some of what turned out be a really nice 2012. Here are some of the pictures from the last 12 months:
Hitting the reset button is never easy. Do you start a game, a project, or any life event over again and throw out all of the forward progress that you’ve made to that point? In mid-February I reset my 2013 Post A Day goals. The original idea was to write a short post each day about the things that are making 2013 so great. I’ll still do that. When I started down the strange path toward depression treatment, the plan was reset, however. My daily posts this year are going to reflect the walk toward wellness and the things that I’m doing to get healthy. There will be depressing posts at times this year. That’s kind of the nature of depression. Through it all, though, there will a lot of posts focused on the good things, the ideals that encourage wholeness. For instance, there will be a lot of posts over the course of 365 days about running a marathon and giving the sponsorship proceeds to mental health and suicide prevention organizations ( To Write Love on Her Arms in particular). Life will be good and getting into it this year a joy. With you, dear reader, by my side, of course.
