So I don’t ever take seriously making New Year’s Resolutions. I always figure if I am going to start something I should start it.
But on the other hand I understand the significance of a turning point. I remember a few years ago where a dream on New Year’s seemed significant. At the very least I woke up and felt like I had turned a corner (from what had otherwise been a downward trend). And I suppose New Year’s Resolutions set nice goals, however temporary they seem for most people.
So to that end let me make my list like everyone else does:
– I plan to continue drawing. A drawing for each day. I admit, I fall behind, but I strive to always catch up. I take my sketchbook every where so that I can draw in the minutes I have. Its important to me, and makes me feel good.
– I plan to exercise regularly. I started this one a while ago. I started biking 40 minutes a day after work. I’ve fallen off the bandwagon over Christmas Break as I haven’t kept a regular schedule. So in order to improve my exercising I need to set it as part of my schedule even when I am not keeping a regular schedule. I can do that.
– Keep the apartment cleaner. I’ve been slowly de-cluttering my stuff over the last couple months. A few small things here, a few small things there. We did some small rearranging, moved a bookcase to the bedroom (and got rid of six books in the move), organized what was left in the living room. Kitchen is next on the list. We’ve been more on top of the dishes and doing laundry.
– I don’t know, more outdoors stuff.
The thing with these goals is that I’m not reinventing the wheel, or doing anything new, I’m just building on top of what I’m doing now. And I kinda think that is how it should be.
