“New Year’s Day. A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved. Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformative year of delight and self-discovery. Today carve out a quiet interlude for yourself in which to dream, pen in hand. Only dreams give birth to change.”
― Sarah Ban Breathnach
As we should all know by now, January 1st doesn’t come with any magic so halting your resolutions till then doesn’t come with an instant miracle installation.
Everything you find yourself accomplishing is a sum of all the work you put in and a little bit of serendipity. However, visions are clearer and tangible when it is put down for you to see, feel and touch.
I must confess, I didn’t meet up with all my 2019 resolutions but it felt challenging to have something to go back to at the end of the year to compare and contrast.
The goal this year is simply to be at war with my vices, at peace with my neighbors, and let the next year find me a better woman.
So, like I did last year, I am going to pen down my new year’s resolutions but this time around I am going to be a little more detailed.
Here we go:
1. Save 30% of my monthly income.
2. Drink at least 2L of water a day.
3. Sleep before 11 pm.
4. Start exercising.
5. Take control of my time on social media.
6. Improve my blog readership.
7. Record over 18000 blog hits.
8. Create more time for friends and family.
9. Embrace spirituality
10. Read at least one book per month
11. Learn when to approach problems with patience and when to attack with grenades.
12. Make mistakes *weird huh?
Feel free to share any of your new year’s resolutions in the comment section.
“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.”
