I know, I know, everyone is always super critical of New Year's Resolutions. I get it. I mean, how many resolutions have I made in my life that haven't...quite panned out? Despite this, I always look forward to making them. Why? It gives me a reason to really think back on the last year and ask myself: what did I do right? What things do I still need to work on? What do I hope to achieve in the coming year? I think it's important to take the time for that reflection.
Lately, I have been thinking a lot about the past year. It has been filled with an awful lot of work - and even a little bit of travel. I definitely tried to make some incredible memories with my loved ones despite my hectic schedule. Unfortunately, as I look back at this year, I realize just how much of it I spent stressed out, frazzled, and writing out to-do lists. Which brings me to my list of resolutions for this year!
- To spend more time on myself (relaxing, working out more, and being social)
- To focus more energy on building my writing career (and less on the full-time job that pays the bills)
- To have a more positive attitude in my day-to-day life (aka get more sleep and stop being so crabby!)
Maybe these resolutions will stick and maybe they won't. One thing is for certain though: I'm going to give them my all!
"Sometimes we know the best thing to do, but fail to do it.
New year's resolutions are often like that."
So, those are my New Year's Resolutions. What are yours?
