Today I wanted to share my new years resolution. I used to have resolutions for the new year every year when I was younger but I think it’s been a few years since I’ve set goals for myself for the year. I figured I should do it to have some motivation for changes or improvements throughout the year. They are just hard to stick to, I feel like I start the year following my goals and then I forget about them lol but I will try to stick to them as long as I can, plus I have ones that I really do want to accomplish.
- Eat healthy and exercise more: Honestly we don’t eat a lot of junk food, but our main weakness is sweets. I think I’m better than my boyfriend at not buying them and staying away from them. But he buys me chocolates or desserts cause he knows I love them and so does he but that isn’t very helpful when I try to eat healthy. I have been exercising more and have lost about 8 pounds so I plan to keep it up this new year, and even if I don’t lose more weight, I just want to feel better and have more energy.
- Meet people and make friends: Okay, this one is difficult. It’s hard to make new friends now. I only really talk to people at work but I’m not close enough to hang out outside work. Other than that, I don’t have any other place where I could meet people. When I was in high school, I had tons of friends but lost contact with them when we all went to different colleges and universities. I slowly lost contact with old coworkers than I used to hang out with and now I find myself having no friends. It’s not as bad as you’d think, but I do get bored and lonely sometimes, so it’d be nice to have a small group of friends to talk to and hang out with.
- Keep up with blogging: I first started blogging in 2013, but I wasn’t consistent and only blogged when I was bored. I tried to do it often but always found myself lacking ideas. I even went to only blogging twice or three times in one year, 2015, I believe. I decided to start blogging again in July of last year and have been much more consistent. I am planning to keep up with it as I do enjoy it. It’s something I look forward to, specially cause it keeps me busy and interacting with others.
- Read more: I remember when I was young and I would stay up all night reading. Later on when I was 16 and moved to Canada, I had to learn the new language so reading wasn’t something I enjoyed much as it seemed like a chore to me. After I learned the language and was more comfortable, I picked up reading as it was easier and went back to enjoying it. I’m not sure why I stopped, for the last few years I’ve only been reading a couple of books per year which is awful. In this new year I want to go back to loving books, so far I’m doing good. I’m reading Finders Keepers by Stephen King and I am enjoying it.
Those are my main goals for the year. I hope to travel around Canada this year, go for more walks and keep up with my hobbies such as makeup, knitting and baking. I am looking forward to what’s to come in the new year, I hope that this will be a great year for me, for my loved ones, and for all of you guys. Thank you for reading! Please let me know if you have posted your new years resolution, I’d love to check it out.
