What are your plans for the new year?

I have never been a fan of New Years Resolutions, so, I don't make them. I do, however, strive to be a better version of me. I LOVE that saying because we can't change other people, only ourselves. At 52, I find myself reaching into the past, remembering the young girl I once was, the young woman I became, and the 'of age' woman I am now. I have not lived an interesting life, but I have lived a life. A good one too, no matter the ups and downs. I strive to ride out the downhill slope of older years much the same way I climbed the hill to middle age...striving for something.

In 2019, I will strive to exorcise more. That means more than walking and riding my bike.

In 2019, I will strive to be a better writer. That means taking workshops on craft, reading books on craft, and stretching my writing.

In 2019, I will strive to take better care of myself emotionally. That means staying away from situations that cause me a great deal of anxiety and stress.

In 2019, I will strive to be kinder and more forgiving.

In 2019, I will strive to learn new things and go on new adventures.

In 2019, I will strive to be a better friend. Over the last few years, I have developed some fantastic friendships, that need a little attention from me.

In 2019, I will strive to be more social.

In 2019, I will strive to NOT make the same mistakes I made in 2018.

Wow. I remember growing up as a kid in the 70's and 80's, thinking 1999 was so far away and now I'm typing 2019. Weird.

What will you strive for in 2019?

Spread the love
