Welcome to the first Ultimate Coffee Date of 2018! Is it too late to wish you a Happy New Year? Is it too soon to ask if you’ve given up on any resolutions? 😉 Share your “coffee date” post in the link up below, and make sure you visit my co-host Deborah at Confessions Of A Mother Runner and comment on other blogs to spread some New Year’s goodwill.

If we were having coffee …
If we were having coffee, I would ask about your holiday. Did you travel? Did you get a chance to relax? Did you drink too much eggnog? I only took a few days off from work–and didn’t have any eggnog!–but it was nice to have some down time without a big to-do list keeping me running around.
If we were having coffee, I would ask if you made any New Year’s resolutions or have any big goals for 2018. I didn’t and I don’t, but I am participating in Laura’s Fit And Fueled program and looking forward to implementing her tips and strategies for improving my nutrition and performance.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am still drawing inspiration from this Picasso quote that Ann shared during a yoga class.
Then and now I draw on it mostly for cycling. I did that challenging Conte’s Hill ride until I could do it, but now that it’s been a few months I may be starting from “can not do” again. I need this reminder that it’s worth facing down my fear of failing–and falling–to learn how to do it again.
That brings me to the words I’ve chosen for 2018:
Namaste served me well in 2017, and with compassion I will continue my efforts to see the best in others. But I also need courage to do the hard things God may be calling me to do to make His world a better place. Instead of choosing, I decided to have two words for 2018.
Did you choose a word (or two!) for 2018?
