Happy New Year everyone! Hope you enjoyed the holidays! I sure did! It was busy but received some unexpected guests. My father and his girlfriend came all the way from Quebec to see me which I appreciate very much and we rang the new year at Medieval Times with my mom and her husband which was great! Now time to reset our goals.
A new year means a fresh start for me. It’s time to reflect on what I would like to accomplish this year. I am not going to set a definite goal per se. This year, I want to take better care of myself. That would be the main goal.
I want to focus on being healthy. Weight is just a number, what’s important is how you feel in your body.
This year, I want to focus on the following but limited:
- Make better food choices
- Consume less sugar
- Drink less alcohol
- Reduce caffeine intake
- Go to the gym 3 times per week minimum
These are the main focus that we always should follow, but unfortunately, temptations always come into play and we lose track. Last year, I was always trying to lose the weight, but with no success. This year, if I lose weight in the process, good! If not, I am sure I will at least feel better in my skin.
- Write more (On my blog and/or a journal)
- Have more focus on practicing my guitar
- Start drawing
Ever since I started blogging, I feel better in my head. Putting all my ideas on paper or on here is freeing my brain of the clutter. I know I have been MIA for a little while and I was all over the place trying to figure out what to write about. To be honest with you, I still don’t know. I decided to stop trying and just write whatever I feel like it. I am sure my experiences and discoveries will help at least one person somewhere. This year, I will be me and I will not try to be something that isn’t me.
I have been slacking on my guitar practicing as well and learning an instrument is challenging, but is also therapeutic. I love music, but it seems like I never have the time to practice… The truth is, we find excuses… It is so easy to be lazy and sit in front of the TV. It’s much easier. haha! So I want to dedicate at least 30 minutes 2-3 days in the week for practice.
When I was a kid, I used to be awesome at drawing, but came adulthood and ever since I entered the workforce, I have been putting aside my artsy side. This year, I would like to start drawing on a regular basis. I bought myself before the holidays I really nice sketch book and I don’t want it to go to waste. I don’t know if I will be able to keep it up, but I would like to come up with monthly drawings. I thought, that one drawing per month isn’t that hard to accomplish and again, drawing is really therapeutic as well.
2019 is the year that I will take better care of myself and I believe that the listed goals above are going to be beneficial for achieving it.
Let’s hope I can keep it up! But when roadblock arise, there’s always tomorrow to start again. We’re all human after all.
Assess, modify, refocus, achieve!
What are your goals for this year?
