I don’t like the concept of “resolutions” but I do like to set goals that I can put into place for progressive change.
- Take control of the device that is stealing my time. I’m reevaluating my time usage with apps and redefining my relationship with ‘always-on’ work emails (especially the weekends).
- This will be the year I finally learn to say ‘no’. I find that I commit myself to things because I feel pressured, I don’t want to let people down, or FOMO.
- Accept myself. I have reached a point in my life (approaching 30) that I feel pleased with the person I have become. For too long, I’ve questioned almost every move and overthought so much of what I’ve done. It’s time to accept who I am and be confidence in the person I have become.
4 and 5 are carry over goals from last year, but I like them so much I want to continue them.
- Find happiness in the person staring back at me in the mirror every morning. Last year, I found myself to be more critical of my body than ever before. On average, I worked out 5 days a week because I wanted to transform my body into what I saw when scrolled on Instagram. I want to continue that momentum, but I want to resume it for different reasons. (And that shirtless photo? I finally took it.)
- Keep reading. I really enjoy it. It’s a wonderful escape from my iPhone and the world war we’re facing. It also makes for great conversation between friends and strangers alike.
