I’m not going to lie, kids. Every year, I make resolutions after 6 months of telling myself that I won’t make them. Without fail, I end up not completing any of them. But, I try, and I feel that even a small attempt is a good one. Wouldn’t you agree?
I try to make my resolutions realistic as much as possible. First, I’ll assess what the next year looks like in pre-made plans and try to base some of them around that or expand more on what I’ll already be accomplishing to keep the progress train going. Last year, my goals were pretty simple. Travel more. Get back into the things that make me happy. Work on getting the store up. I traveled a little more than usual, but still not as much as I had wanted (which is fine). I got back into the things that made me happy; sewing, crafting, cooking and baking, gaming. The only aspect I really feel that I failed at was getting the store up. By the time I felt ready, City of Lodi suggested that I wait a few more weeks until the beginning of 2015 since their license run from January 1 to December 31. It’s ok, though, because I still worked towards it and I’m still making it happen.
This year, I’ve decided to expand my resolutions a little bit more:
- More nail art more often
- Incorporate Filipino culture more into my life
- Play more video games
- Work on and finish 2014 scrapbook
- Make a quilt
- Finishing Bulbasaur cross stitch
- Start actively working out (home or gym)
- Healthier eating style
- More regular blog posting
- Begin eliminating debt
- Mastering the recipe for ONE mini cake
- Learn to use fondant
- Take a class at Joann’s
My goals are small and probably seem more like projects, but they’re mine and ones I know I can accomplish. I’m really confident in these and my ability to finish! But, you know, we’ll see how it all works out at the end of the year. 😉
