In December, I talked about how I’m not making resolutions this year, that I have made some goals and am working towards meeting those instead. I mean, goals and resolutions are kind of the same thing in a way anyway, so that was my thought. And also, I didn’t want to put a ton of pressure on myself. Meeting those goals is very important to me, but there are other things I want to do as well, and some of those things fall within the wider scope of those goals as well.
There are hobbies I want to try, changes I want to make in my lifestyle, things that I might be able to do, but likely won’t be able to because I’m a mom to a five month old who increasingly demands my time and attention. And one of my goals was to spend time playing with him. I’m only having one child, so Baby J is my one and only. I want to cherish every moment of his babyhood.
But, of course I want to continue to grow and learn and I have so much I want to do for myself. These things are going to improve my life and so I hope I get to them–if not all this year, then eventually. So let’s just dive in and talk about those twenty-two things.
When it comes to lifestyle, there are some changes I want to make or include. They are:
- exercise regularly
- explore my faith/spiritually
- begin birdwatching
- have more date nights
- bake healthy treats
- be more organized
- entertain family and friends
- drink more water
- eat more leafy greens
- reduce time on social media
- journal consistently
This is an area that always excites me and I really would like to:
- dive back into creative writing
- learn to knit
- learn to embroider
- learn Tunisian crochet
- read more books
- publish a book of poetry on Wattpad
- share poetry on the blog
Well, of course I have ideas and things I want to do for my blog. They are:
- grow my audience
- start earning
- gain more subscribers (you can subscribe right now if you like)
- expand my content topics
Those are the twenty-two things! I think some are attainable but I know I am not going to be able to do all of these things this year. I hope I can make headway on some of the harder “goals” like knitting. I know birdwatching will be hard to get into with a little baby, but it’s something I’ve been interested in trying for some time now. If you follow me on Twitter, you might have noticed I have a thing for birds. Writing these down has felt empowering, so I hope that I continue to be inspired to strive towards these goals as the year goes on.
