If You Never Tri, You'll Never Know!

What awaits you in 2016?


I sure hope this is someone else's wedding!! *insert EYES WIDE OPEN face*
The rest of it, I'll take!!

Did you make any New Year's resolutions? I really didn't. Of course, I want to lose weight and get stronger ^ more muscles!! Toned body!! YEAHHH!! But aren't we supposed to go deeper than that? 

What do I want for myself for 2016? What kind of change do I want to see in the world? In myself? 2015 was so much about letting go. And not on purpose. I didn't plan for that development or enlightenment; it all just happened. So I think that's what I'm going in to 2016 with... it's all a part of letting go and just letting things happen. 

I'm definitely a go getter. And I'm not going to let up on that. I'm going to go and get what I want... That's not what I mean by "let things happen".

I think too much. I think and I worry. There are things I want so bad in my life that it physically hurts if/when I don't get them. I make myself sick over them. Even when I have absolutely no control over what could happen. And my heart and mind battle between acceptance and fuck that, it's not fair! Sure I let happiness guide my spirit, but pissed off, selfish, arms crossed, stomping her feet Lisa SCREAMS for attention sometimes. It's really hard to sit back and LET things happen.

For being such a free spirit, I like to be in control. I know it's a bit contradictory but I am a PLANNER. It's easy for me to see though, I can't control everything and plans usually go to shit! So I'm going to relinquish that control. (Okay, SOME of that control ~ let's not get crazy!) But I want to just let things happen. The good, the bad, and the ugly. And be okay with it. <--- that's probably the important part. 
I want to celebrate the good, learn from the bad, and put some make up on the ugly.
I'm not going to freak out or be sad. I'm going to turn loneliness into peacefulness and adversity into growth. I'm not going to allow myself to become an obstacle.
I'm going to continue to travel and meet people ~ do things that scare me!
I'm going to be here for you. Be a good friend. Be a shoulder, an ear, or a hug.
I'm going to be fearless and confident and resourceful. 
I'm going to be an Ironman ~ strong, resilient, dedicated!
I'm going to represent my sport, my sponsors, my athletes, my friends, my bosses, my family, my WORLD, with dignity and integrity. I'm going to Coach and motivate and INSPIRE. I'm going to embrace moments and love deep. I'm going to smile. And I'm going to let things happen.

There is a time to MAKE things happen. 
And there's a time to LET things happen. 
2016, you have the reigns, I'm letting you happen! (but please note that when I need magic, I'm making that shit happen!! *kisses*!!)
