I thought the best way to respond to this might be by sharing my New Year's Resolutions/Goals. I'm not sure that I like the connotation that comes with the word "resolutions." Most of them seem to die out pretty quickly, and I don't want that, so I have decided to stick with "goals" for the new year. I intend to work very hard to make them happen, too.
-Eat healthier (I'm going to start by counting calories, just to help me get on track. Once I feel like I've gained some self control with food, I'll most likely stop this).
-Exercise: Even though I work an hour from home, I know I need to find ways to fit in some fitness. I know it will also help me get through the days easier.
-Be more positive about myself/my image; I have a bad habit of being way too hard on the way I look. No one is perfect, and I need to keep reminding myself of that.
-Journal daily; so far, so good. I love to write, and it is a wonderful way for me to get feelings out that I'm not always comfortable expressing in words to others. I think that it's a wonderful goal to write something every day, even if it is just a tiny bit.
-Find a new job: I count this more on the emotional side. I am in a very negative environment at the moment. And when the new school year comes around, I hope to be in a new school where I can grow in a positive way instead of dreading going to school.
-Staying positive in general; I have gotten to a point (mostly because of my job) that I am incredibly negative about things, and I want to change that.
-Be more social: I want to make some great new friends (whether online or in person)
-Keep up with Project Life - I had a blast putting together my title page yesterday, and look forward to continuing on. The Day by Day class has already been inspiring.
-Continue using/learning more about my new Cameo. I love it already, so I want to make sure I don't put it aside.
-Focus on my word BELIEVE
-Keep up with One Little Word - I'm really excited about it, and want to remain that way throughout the year.
-Begin an art journal - I have seen these all over Pinterest, and I am definitely interested.
-Write, write, write. This is my biggest goal this year.
That's it, at least for now! I have high hopes for 2014, and I'm really excited about sticking with things and making them happen.
