Is it really 2014? Did I really finish one semester of graduate school? Have I really had a fluctuating cold for an entire month?
If you answered yes to all three questions you get to be right about something for once!
I hope you’re right about things more often though.
Did you make New Year’s Resolutions? I did. And technically I’ve broken every single one of them. But I don’t consider myself a failure. I will still continue my resolutions as if I didn’t break them.
1. Stop drinking soda: I had one on the plane back to Pittsburgh and some tonight… but in my defense, both times made my stomach hurt, so at least there have been some repercussions.
2. Eat less unnecessary desserts: This would be more attainable if people stopped giving me them. (Not that I’m complaining about the homemade chocolate chip cookies that came in the mail from my friend… they are delicious.)
3. Focus more on myself: I haven’t failed at this, but I also don’t want it to seem like I’m being self-absorbed or selfish. I mean this in the matter of my mental, physical, and spiritual health. In order to be the best that I can be, all of these need to be attended to, and it’s something that I want to focus on since this year (as like last year) is bound to bring some more major changes.
4. Write more: I’ve got an idea for a book… and I actually like it. I also like this little blog thing and in one year I have garnered over 40 followers plus the people who read this but leave no evidence of who they are. I would LOVE to grow this space and to actually have comments on the posts so that conversation can happen. Otherwise this is just a one-sided conversation.
5. Seek adventure: This was my resolution last year and it’s continuing on this year as well. I want to live this very finite life as if I were given the greatest adventure to be apart of. It’s a beautiful thing.
Those are pretty much my resolutions.. or as that one commercial says, my New Year’s Revolution. But I’m not too worried if I fail at them at different points. Life isn’t fun when we’re just worried about everything.
What are your resolutions?
