I realize I’ve been severely slacking on my blog over the past few months. I started a new job and I’ve allowed myself to just live for a while without worrying about what’s coming next. Along with that new mentality, I’ve incorporated more relaxation into my after work time, which translated into less blogging. But starting in the New Year, I want to make more time for the things that keep my mind fresh and sharp. This includes more blogging.
I’ve never really been good at keeping New Years resolutions in the past. Maybe it’s because I never really set resolutions I was intent on keeping or I didn’t write them down. Well, this year I’ve decided to do my best to start fresh in 2014 and be the best that I can be. Here goes nothing.
My New Years Resolutions:
1. Write More
I originally intended to have this blog be a regular part of my routine, keeping you informed about events in my life and what I’ve been thinking about. As you can see, things didn’t really go according to plan. 2014 marks a new start, and with that, I will start blogging more.
2. Read More
I have so many great books, yet I waste so much time watching TV, especially shows I’ve seen a million times. I want to spend more time filling my mind with knowledge and reading the words of great writers.
3. Try new things
I want to step out of my comfort zone and experience new things. Far too often I stay in my comfort zone because I’m afraid of what might happen if I step out. This year I’m going to take more risks. Well… I’m going to attempt to take more risks. And going along with my first resolution, I’m going to keep myself accountable by sharing my new experiences with you.
4. Make more plans
Working full time, along with getting older, has left me with little time and energy to fill my life with extra curricular experiences. It’s the least I can do to fit a workout here and there. This year, I want to go out more and experience more of what my great city (Toronto) has to offer. This also means I have to intentionally plan things to do and people to do them with, as opposed to waiting for plans to fall into my lap. I’m going to stop waiting for the life I want to happen, and start making it happen for myself.
I’m hoping that telling you about my New Years resolutions will help to keep me accountable and hopefully this year, I’ll keep at least one of them. By 2015, I’ll look forward to sharing how I’ve enriched my life with new experiences.
So, what resolutions have you made and what have you done in the past to keep your resolutions? I’d love to here from you in the comments below! 🙂
