Today's Moment of Clarity: Resolutions

I've gotten a bit off track since moving to LA 15 months ago.

You can't blame me, derailed from the job I moved here for, with little time to figure out what I wanted to do next until the next opportunity just dropped in my lap.

In fact, it's kind of amazing I haven't gained any of my 50 pounds lost back. That's what would've happened five years ago.

But that doesn't mean I am on track.

In January, I made my New Year's Resolution to "Stop barking up the wrong tree" (conveniently phrased in six words).

But a couple of months into 2012, I don't much like the idea of my only goal for the year being stopping. I never wanted to run away from New York; I wanted to run towards something. I'd rather regret the things I do than the things I never did.

At work, over the last few weeks, I've made it my goal to "maintain sanity." But that's not enough for me as a person.

So now I resolve to get on track and start doing more, to recapture some of the things that have fallen away:


Maybe that means I'll have to take some time away from hiking (which is what I should be doing right now on a cool, sunny Saturday afternoon) or my nightlife, but it's a worthwhile sacrifice.

Even just starting (I have gotten to all of the above except Weight Watchers) feels good. I feel better.

A little.
