On the off-chance that anyone will bother reading this (or, find it remotely interesting, for that matter)…behold, my Resolutions for 2015:
- I will integrate a 30-minute yoga practice into my regular routine, starting with once per week, then gradually increasing to every day.
- I will divorce my tendency to restrict calories and, instead, eat balanced portions of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and whole grains.
- I will put a small sum of money aside each month in order to afford an adventure abroad by the end of 2015 or the beginning of 2016.
- I will learn how to play a musical instrument or explore a potential new hobby that I’ve wanted to try but have never made time for.
- I will curb my sarcastic tongue, compulsive need for control, superiority complex and judgmental attitude in my dealings with others.
- I will root excessive anxiety, stress or fear of the future out of my life, and focus on counting my blessings instead of uncertainties.
- I will make a conscious effort to form new friendships in my area, as well as reconnect with old friends, with whom I’ve lost touch.
- I will pursue professional writing opportunities, learn how to become marketable in this industry and, of course, network my ass off.
- I will participate in the Whole-30 nutrition program at least once, which will be an extraordinary feat, considering my love for wine.
- I will get back into the habit of regularly posting on this [sniff…sniff…all-too-often neglected] blog, at a minimum of twice per week.
- I will become more sensitive and respectful toward my significant other’s needs, and flex my “romantic muscles” more frequently.
- I will practice open communication with loved ones, demonstrate vulnerability and accept help, instead of relying solely on myself.
- I will read 5-10 classic novels from Time Magazine’s 100 All-Time Best Literary Works list, even if this makes me sound pretentious.
- I will continue my current exercise regimen of 5 days per week–1 hour per day, focusing on a balance of cardio and strength training.
- I will regularly attend a local Bible study and set aside between 10-15 minutes on a daily basis for spiritual “quiet time” and meditation.
