I looked at the calendar this morning and saw it was January 23 and immediately thought WTF? Where did January go?
Since it’s almost the end of January, I thought that it was time to do away with resolutions. They’ve all been pretty frivolous anyway. What do I really want to do with 2010 anyway?
- Be as healthy as possible.
- Get out of debt.
- Find a new job.
- Be happy with what I have instead of always wanting something else.
- Spend as much time as possible with the people I love.
- Find out who I am.
And yes, of course, I’m going to accomplish #6 in one year. Hell, I’ll be lucky if I find that out in my lifetime, because it’s been 31 years and I have no idea. But on the style/fashion front (and this blog has mostly been about that), it’ll help me figure out what my style is and what I should be wearing.
#3 and #4 are pretty contradictory, but who knows about #3 in this economy and job market, so in the event that #3 doesn’t pan out, I want to focus on #4.
As for #1 and #2…they’re the most important to me, which is exactly why I’ve been shopping up a storm and eating a ton of sugar and wheat (two things that I know make me feel unwell). In all honesty, I won’t get completely out of debt in one year, but I have to start rather than just ignoring it/making it worse.
But before I completely freak out about the magnitude of what I want to do (except #5, that’s easy), I have to remember to stop, relax, and breathe…and everything else will fall into place.
