Some people don’t like New Year’s resolutions because they think it sets them up for failure. Other people love resolutions and go semi overboard – depending on your perception.
I lean towards loving resolutions. I know I can’t always meet them – and I know some are unrealistic – but I know enough about myself to make resolutions that are attainable. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still willing to set a goal that I probably won’t meet, but how do I really know I won’t meet it? Every year I see people accomplish all kinds of things and if another person can do it… well, I can do it, too.
I turned 27 on December 27th and I’m ready for my golden year. I’ve made changes before and I’m making them again. While this isn’t quite a quarter life crisis, it’s close enough!
Bring it on, 2015.
- Graduate. (MBA!!!)
- Run one mile. Every. Single. Day.
- Gasparilla. (I didn’t sign up for the most insane challenge.)
- Abs. This is an unrealistic goal. But it’s a goal that requires a lot of work, time, and effort. This effort will lead to results regardless; it’s about an overall lifestyle change.
- Let go of people that ask for time, but give none.
- The Four Agreements. Most importantly remember that “your best is going to change from moment to moment”.
- Get a bike. There is so much to discover!
- Rest. This never happens. It needs to happen.
- Blog more – I treated my blog really well in 2013, but in 2014 grad school kind of took over my life. This year I’m going to balance! It can be done.
- Get a new job. Constant unhappiness is bad for your health.
All of these items are very self-focused and I’m sure it seems selfish. Some people might think I was selfish in 2014 – and maybe I was – but you can’t live your life for others.
Make it the best year yet! Here’s to a golden year.
