a I'm writing this on New Year's Eve in my PJs. I decided to stay in this year because 2015 was the year I realized I really hate parties with large crowds unless I'm 200% in the mood for it, and even then I only ever want to go home after 30 minutes. And that is okay.
2015 was a pretty kick-ass year for me. I kicked off the year in Vegas, went to Harry Potter World for the first time, quit my job, went to Europe, saw basically all of my favorite musicians, drove across the country, got a new job, and finally mastered my 20 minute morning routine.
All of that was cool but I don't want to dwell on it and forget to continue to do cool things. I feel like I get too excited about things I did and then forget that I can keep doing other fun things. That being said, I really hate ~*~New Year's Resolutions~*~ Like honestly, who wants to set boundaries for themselves for the entire year. That's dumb and unrealistic. Instead, I'm a fan of small short term goals more than broad obvious goals but obviously setting big goals is how to get plan for the future and get things done. BUT there is a great satisfaction in meeting small goals that will give you a sense of accomplishment.
I made my own list of goals that I would like to cross off this year.
Goals for 2016:
Take more home videos
Have really white teeth
Finally master a forearm stand in yoga
Be more "in the moment"
Find more beauty in minimalism
Send more cards
Touch my phone less
Drink more water
Wear my hair in a middle part
Let go of things (clothes, thoughts, people) that don't have room in my life
Be transparent about what I want
Strive to be a morning person
As always, things change and it's okay to change your goals.
