A New Year, a New Me.

I see posts flying everywhere about resolutions, words for the year, new mantras.

And I don’t have all that. I’ve written before about how I don’t “do” resolutions.

That hasn’t changed.

But I am changing. Growing. Learning. Evolving.

2014 is going to be the year of growth. Changes. Starting over, a fresh outlook. No regrets, no looking back, no stagnation. No grandiose plans, no promises I won’t keep. Just forward motion. Upward. Onward. No backpedaling.

So much is coming up, and I can’t wait: TribeFest in New Orleans, Listen To Your Mother: Kansas City, BlogHer’s 10th anniversary conference, and of course the ongoing work on The Gay Dad Project documentary.

I haven’t reached my potential. I haven’t been stretching myself.

But that’s changing, too.

Hope you’ll stick around to watch me grow.

    Can’t wait to follow along! I love that idea of stretching, not resolving. Different way of looking at making changes.

    Okay, I confess: I jumped on the one word bandwagon. :)

    I think it’s great you’re working hard at reaching your full potential. You are an amazing and inspiring woman. Can’t wait to see what you do this year!

    Totally sticking around to watch. I hope 2014 is a year of big changes for you: good changes. Restorative changes. Changes that leave you feeling a year from now that 2014 was full of blessings. Love you!

    OH Erin, when I think of you I always say “she’s one of the most inspiring and amazing women I know”. I feel so lucky to know you and call you my friend, my shoulder. I can’t begin to say THANK YOU for you’ve done for me over the years (for my writing …you’re the reason I started writing FICTION. For my heart, you’re the reason I kept going and did the IVF, I got my babies because of you. For my self esteem) and esp the last few weeks. ALL THE LOVE you gave me as I lost Ben , well there is no word or show of appreciation big enough to say thank you, but thank you. Always, thank you.

    I have watched you grow for years, find yourself, adjust your footing, stand tall and strong.I’m not going anywhere anytime soon.

    LOVE YOU my friend. xoxo

    Erin, I have been reading but just haven’t been able to comment. I am so hoping that 2014 is an amazing year for you!!! I’m always rooting for you.

  • Ally

    Erin, I know it’s been a difficult year for you. But I’ll tell you what I tell my patients because I honestly believe it applies to all facets of life: “Change is good, but it doesn’t always feel good when it’s happening. Sometimes it even hurts a little. Hang on through the change and good things will result.” You are there. You’ve been changing (meds, kids, life growth) and it’s time for the good results. You are so strong, and that strength will be rewarded!

  • Kim@Co-Pilot Mom

    Oh, I love this. I’m with you and for you. I don’t do resolutions either, but I can say an amen to this. Onto more and better and what’s next. What’s done is done – I love that.
