For many years I made resolutions and then I never followed up on them so last year I had this brilliant idea to stop making resolutions. The only problem….now that 2014 is over, it feels like I got accomplished nothing. I decided that also won’t work so I’m going back to setting some goals.
- Apply to college to start in the Summer semester.
- Make decision when it comes to work.
- Take better care of myself by walking at least 8,000 steps a day and realistically add more until I am at over 10,000 steps; work on my flexibility by doing some yoga at least twice a week; after three months of yoga and watching what I eat and walking, transition to the Couch to 5K program; and stop eating things that are not nice to me. (I am lactose intolerant and have been my whole life but I still ate ice cream and cheese and then just put up with being sick. Now I resolve to stop doing that.)
- Read some books.
- Knit some stuff.
- If I don’t get out of my dark place, resolve to go to a therapist.
None of these resolutions or goals are extremely difficult but I have been in a seriously blue place for the past year and I am being gentle with myself.
