***This has not been proofed. It is also 1 am. I make no promises )
This year has had it’s ups and downs, as most measured links of time do. It’s always odd to me how we all decide to start thing on January 1st. These resolutions that we expect ourselves to live by slowly dwindle as the next year approaches. This means we start to feel guilty that we have not kept up our resolution, thus starting the new year on the wrong foot.
I don’t think the start of any time period should be met with guilt. How are you supposed to concur a task if you are only acting on guilt. You should act on things that you know will make your life more fulfilling. That’s why I created a To Do List quite a while ago. It started off being 30 thing to do before I’m 30. Only some of them happened. Some of them I just just stopped caring about. Some of them I wanted to hang on to and continue to make efforts to make those things happen. It’s important to reassess them yearly if not sooner, to make sure that I still care about the things that are on the list. But for the most part, I find myself crossing things off and adding new things! It’s so exciting.
I also don’t think that everything must start on the 1st day of the new year. It’s a day like any other. I want to start watching what I eat again. I probably won’t start focusing on that until Friday because that is when I start back to school and my routine starts again making things just a little easier. I also have the desire to lift weights more. This is something I have not felt before. I don’t know why but I like the way my body feels after. I still want to travel. I still want to go to craft and antique shows. I want to soak in the amazing friendships I am so lucky to have. I am going to my first local Comicon (sp?)! Later in the year I would like to put Eli in dance classes. Do something that is not one the “To Do” list. Some of these are things that already existed. Find something new to put on the “To Do”list.
All are of these are on the “To Do” list.
