Here’s How 2015 is Going to Go…

I never make New Year’s resolutions. If I’m being honest, I haven’t seen any benefit from it. And, I think if you’ve read any of my other posts then it’s easy to see if I’m not benefitting, I won’t do it. But, now that it’s January 4th, tomorrow will be the first Monday of a normal week, and the New Year hype has died down a bit I think it’s important for me to talk about 2015 and what I want to will accomplish. I’m not even going to reflect on 2014 because it’s over, plain and simple, It was a great year filled with lots of new beginnings and I’ve never thought of my future so much than in this past year. But, back to 2015, there are only a few important things I want to carry in with me. And, I think this will help me remember everyday what I’ve set out to do. Starting this blog (and 2 others!) in the past 6 months has been so therapeutic for me and it’s revived my love for writing so that’s what I’m going to keep doing. Here’s to 2015 and growing!

  1. Mind, Body, Soul
    • Meditate for 5-10 minutes every night when I get home from work and my day is over. I can reflect on my day and spend some time just focusing on my breathing and clearing whatever stress has built up.
    • Drink at least 2 bottles of water a day. Drastically cut down on chocolate.
    • Do yoga for 30 minutes 3 times a week. Never go a week straight without running 5 miles.
    • Smile at strangers.
  2. Work, $$$, Career
    • This is the first year out of school so it’s imperative that I work twice as hard this year as I did in 2014.
    • Don’t get stressed over student loans and car payments. Everyone has bills but not everyone is as lucky to have two jobs as I do.
    • Learn how to use Adobe Illustrator before the year is over.
    • Take your breaks! Always use the time to get some fresh air and stop staring at those computer screens.
    • Have your grad school plan figured out and all apps in, if that’s the road chosen.
  3. Relationships
    • I don’t have to be nice to anyone. Know who lost that privilege and don’t forget why.  People don’t change.
    • To those who deserve your love, be appreciative and caring always.
    • Don’t get upset when mom or yiayia ask if you’re dating anyone. They just want to be around to see you happy and meet him.
    • Keep working on the relationship with yourself. You’ve come a long way but you’ll chip away at this forever. We’ll worry about everyone else later, as it should be.
    • Don’t say no as much and stop talking about how tired you are all the time. It’s not cute.

What are you focusing on in 2015?
