I do not think I’ve ever been able to keep a New Years Resolution, except for the one year my youth group leader challenged myself and a few others to not eat ice cream for an entire year. That was a tough year but I made it work.
This year, I decided to make a few New Years Resolutions that would help me as I make a lot of transitions this year.
- Read more books. I want to try and read a book a month. With life being super hectic with school and work and other things, I am realizing that I need to start making some time for myself. I used to LOVE reading when I was in middle school and high school and would read 2 – 3 books a week. I really want to get back in that habit, especially if I am going to be telling my future students how important it is to read.
- Eat healthier & live a healthier lifestyle. I love food. It is so easy for me to be lazy and not cook, but when I don’t cook, I end up eating junk food. I am hoping that by eating healthier, I will feel better about myself and have more energy than I have already!
I guess overall, 2014 is going to be about me living a healthier lifestyle of me taking much needed time for myself and not overcommitting myself. I tend to easily pile up a lot of different responsibilities and I tend to not be able to tell other people “no”.
So here’s to a wonderful exciting year with lots of new changes and surprises!
Happy New Year!
P.S. What are some of your New Years Resolutions?
