I've never been one to make New Year's Resolutions - I'm pretty sure that if I have to wait for a specific date to try and implement some drastic change in my life, it's doomed to failure. In the last few months, though, I've been doing a lot of stepping outside my comfort zone at work and trying new ways of doing things. It doesn't always come easily, but it's an approach that I'm going to try to add to my everyday life as well.
In that spirit, I thought it might be fun (crazy?) to literally dive into 2014. Some friends and our families spent New Year's at the beach this year, and for the first time in my life I decided I was going to take a dip in the ocean to start of the new year. I was the first one in the water (I'm the splash in the photo - I was underwater at the time it was taken) - I couldn't feel my toes and had to walk back to shore because I was afraid my legs wouldn't be able to keep up with my brain if I tried to run, and thank goodness there was a hot tub waiting back at the house, but it was awesome. Crazy and fun, too.
Crazy, fun, and awesome - I think I'm going to shoot for more of that in 2014.
