The end of the year always brings about the opportunity to reflect on the past year and plan for the next. As you can probably tell by the tone of my last few posts here and over at The Sexpressionists, I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting lately. Our traveling journey over the previous year and a half resulted in a ton of amazing experiences and some great personal growth. We’re enjoying our “down” time right now, but I can’t help but to consider the future.
As of right now, we’re already planning to continue our running clinics with Merrell, though they likely won’t be as frequent. We’re still not sure where we’ll end up, whether we’ll move around or not, or another other “logistical” details.
Despite that ambiguity, I’m already planning some new ideas. Since it’s around New Years, I’ll consider them to be resolutions. The idea behind all my previous plans was to make a dent in the Universe; to make positive change in the world. The new ideas have the same goal. Here are a few:
- Expand the running world with other forms of physical activity, including MMA. This is actually Shelly’s thing (yes, she’s a serious badass.) I see a lot of potential here, though. This idea will be accomplished through my often-delayed BRUcrew idea. I’ll also finish up my trail running book.
- Get involved in the “green building” movement. This is an idea I explored several years ago, but haven’t done much with it. I’m hoping to help people less dependent on public utilities and make less of an environmental impact.
- Continue building The Sexpressionist project. Teaching people how to run better makes them more active, ergo better health. Teaching people how to navigate relationships allows them to have better and more frequent sexual experiences, ergo even better health (and happiness.)
These are my big three for the coming new year. There are a few more ideas floating around, but I don’t want to dilute my focus too much.
What about you? Do you have any plans to make a positive change in the world? Share your ideas with the rest of us in the comments section!
