Now that the new year has started, it’s time to figure out what major things I want to accomplish this year.
This kind of goes with doing more for me. In the past year I have had some health issues pop up, that I feel if I would have just been doing what I am suppose to I wouldn’t have these either wouldn’t have happened or wouldn’t have been as bad. First of all I am a BIG sloucher, always have been. I have to take care of that. I am going to exercise more, like I did for a good bit of last year. I am also going to try yoga since I have been told that does a lot for your posture. I also need to eat better. I use to do so well at prepping my meals for the week on Sunday, but I have just fallen out of that habit. I know how to do it I just have to do it. Which I did it this past Sunday and I can already tell a difference. Last but not least, I have to drink more water! When I valeted I was constantly staying hydrated. Now that I sit at a computer all day I would rather drink coffee.. Over this past holiday I noticed how dehydrated I was getting and I could tell my body was not happy with me. Perfect example, I went to the gym on Wednesday and didn’t get a chance to post, but it is something I needed to do (Sorry not sorry, I needed it).
I absolutely love getting mail. I realized how much I like sending people things in the mail this past Christmas when I was finally able to send out my own Christmas cards. I like the idea of brightening someone’s day by just simply sending them a piece of paper in the mail. It is pretty much a lost art in the digital age. I am going to start by sending 4 items a month. That way I don’t overwhelm myself. If I do end up sending out more, awesome! Just a good starting place to get me in the grove. So by the end of the year I have 48 pieces to get in the mail.
Now that I feel like I have settled in, it is time that I explore. Even if it simply just going on a drive to go take pictures. I just need to go out and enjoy this state that I moved to. I loved going on mini adventures back home in Texas, sometimes I found some interesting things and sometimes nothing too interesting. Either way I got lost, and found a piece of myself. I want to do that again, especially since I pretty much know nothing about Arizona.
I think this blog will help me with this and keep me motivated. I just want to do more with my hands I guess. I want to paint, sew, craft, decorate and build more. I at least want to do this once a month, if not more. I did get a circular saw for Christmas, so I have somethings that I want to make with it.
I am terrible at doing things for myself. Over the last couple years I have seen myself care more for other people than I have for myself. It is time to make sure I take care of me. If I don’t, then who will?
I’m sure as the year goes on there will be other things I want to add to my list, but at least this is a start.
