Happy New Year everyone! I am oddly glad to be going back to work this week. I love the holidays – the decorations, baking, getting together with friends and family. But our decorations have been put away, and I am ready to get back to a routine. My daughter is going back to school today, and I am ready to embark on another semester. Last year, Kelly and I shared our goals for the year, and we were somewhat successful. This year, I’ll do the same. These are just some of the goals I have this year.
I will again attempt to do more yoga. It’s not really a resolution – again, this is a goal, I don’t think resolutions ever work. Kel and I have challenged each other, and encouraged each other, to run more. Wish we could do it together – but there are just a few miles between us! The running is great, and I got a few things for Christmas that make running so much better. The yoga helps when my legs are sore, tired, and telling me to take a break. Last year I downloaded a great yoga app, then a few months of no yoga deleted the app. I’m kicking myself now – and this may be something else Kel and I can do together!
I’m excited to tackle another reading challenge. Last year, I made a goal of reading more – and that’s one goal that I accomplished. BringingUpBurns posted a reading challenge that I am eager to take on. It includes books that I probably normally wouldn’t read – and maybe a few that I’ve read before, that I’ll be rereading. It’ll challenge me to get out of my book comfort zone, which is a good thing. One of the best challenges is reading a book with a friend, which is something I can’t wait to do!
One other goal I have is to create more. I love making things – but don’t always have time. I have a bunch of crafts that are half-finished. Whether I decide to finish those projects, or embark on new ones, it is a goal of mine. Last year I read The Fringe Hours, which was a call to all women to take time for themselves. It was such an important message, and such a great book.
What are your goals for the new year? Do you have any resolutions??
