It’s that time of year. You’ve still got a whole almost two weeks to think about it and plan, but it’s time to start thinking of New Year’s Resolutions. Every year these catch me off guard. I wake up on New Year’s day and someone says, “What’s your New Year’s resolution?” And I quickly think of something to fluff up what seems like an adequate resolution. “Oh I hope to … read the National Geographic cover to cover every month.”
This year, I’m really going to think them out, though. Writing and research have always been my passions in life. I really just want to know everything there is to know about everything. I’m sure my coworkers can attest to my annoying “Did you know?” facts sprinkled into irrelevant conversation, when a little mention of one thing sets off my brain relating it to something else.
Here are some resolutions I’ve been mulling over committing to this coming year:
- Write one page of personal (non-work, non-blog) something every day
- Take healthy eating to the next level
- Tone up (gain more muscle mass) and be able to do more athletic things
- Get out of defense/back midfield and actually score a goal in YMCA soccer
- Read a lot more books (classics & modern lit)
- Save enough to get a new car
- Get more involved in the community
- Take up yoga again
- Take more trips around Georgia
- Make more friends and have meaningful relationships
What are you New Year’s Resolutions?
