That is a question that I have been asking myself for quite a while. 2012 was a year of transition. We moved from South Carolina to Denver towards the beginning of the year, and while I did not start at a new company I started a new job. The first month of being in Denver I was actually in South Dakota for work.
I travelled quite a bit over the summer so I did not get a great opportunity to explore all Denver had to offer.
So what will 2013 be like now that I have been living here almost a full year.
Well for one my wife has a full-time job, something that she did not have for the majority of the year last year. So we struggled a bit for money. This year will be much better in that aspect.
Secondly I have settled into my job fairly well and will probably not travel quite as much. I don't mind the travel it just makes it tough when I am gone for a month at a time.
Thirdly, everyone in the family is much happier now that we are living in a place that we really enjoy. I did not mind South Carolina but it was never actually my home. I could never consider it a place I would like to live for the rest of my life.
Denver on the other hand could easily be that place.
My wife seems to be doing much better with her depression and we are working on our relationship.
I am looking forward to exploring all that the Rockies have to offer. I spent a good part of my adult life in Utah, therefore I have a lot of time in the mountains just not the Rockies.
There are some incredible areas to explore and now that we have the money and the time to do it things will be much better all around.
So 2013 will be a year of settling into my routine here in Denver. Hopefully forming new relationships that will last a long time.
Finding new places to explore with the family and overall enjoying the outdoors again.
There are a few things that I want to happen as we progress through the year.
One of which is to get more focused on my writing. I have been meaning to start an online magazine for quite some time. I have the name and url and all but just have not spent anytime developing it.
Hopefully I can do that.
I also want to rekindle my relationship with my wife. We can work on the relationship but I also need to work on myself.
As the first month is drawn to a close, I can say that things are starting to fall into place... here is to a happy and healthy rest of 2013.
