We all make New Year’s Resolutions. Sometimes we keep them, sometimes we don’t. I read that writing them down and sharing them with others gives you a better chance of sticking to them. I had two this year. One I kept a secret, (The 52 Week Money Challenge,) and the other was writing this blog every day for a year,– obviously not a secret at all since according to my stats, it has had 44,456 hits since I began! I still cannot believe that many people are interested in what I have to say! I have a little less than a week to reach 45,000 by the end of this year. I wonder if I will get there??
Today was a great day to stay home, do some organizing, take a nap, spend time with my family and begin thinking about what next year’s resolution will be! I impressed myself by sticking to the two from 2013, so now I need to find something that will inspire me to stick to it for 2014. I even “Googled” it trying to come up with something new and inventive. All the usual things came up, lose weight, exercise everyday, eat healthier… but I want to do something different, (although I can definitely do some of those things.)
Dave would be happy if I chose to do this one that I found, “Spend less time worrying about what other people think.” This is a terrible problem I have so it could be something to work on.
I would love to be able to spend more time with friends. We try to do this often, but with crazy schedules, it is hard to find the time. Even once a month, setting aside time to meet up would be satisfying!
One that I found interesting was, “Learn/try something new.” I have actually started that already. I began working out at a new studio in town, taking classes that I have never done before and I am enjoying it so much. I’d love to be able to keep that up. I have been kickboxing for three years and LOVING it, but limiting myself to just that. This year, I’d love to incorporate the kickboxing with some other classes and challenge myself to things I might have never done otherwise. A few years ago, I would have never imagined myself running 5k’s and doing Mud Runs and now I am doing a few a year so…..maybe this is a good one for me….
I have four days to come up with something for sure. What are some of your ideas? I’d love to hear them. I will be sure to write it down and share with other so that I have more of a chance of sticking to it!!
