New Year’s has always been a time I enjoyed…plans or no plans. One year my sisters, Jenna, and I all watched the ball drop together and had a wonderful girls night. Now I usually go to the Brown Hotel for a cocktail then dinner with my BF and friends. Whether it is a fancy night out or home watching TV I have always enjoyed it. I love the whole message behind New Year’s and I love the excitement. It never gets old watching all the performances and most of all, the ball drop.
As I have gotten older I have been more realistic about resolutions and making them attainable for a year’s amount of time. Last year my resolutions were 1) Live in the moment, 2) Make healthier choices, and 3) Be bold. I feel like I achieved those in many different ways. By living in the moment I have been able to separate from my phone by enjoying the people around me and their company instead of checking on social media. I started practicing yoga 3-4 times a week and eating better in order to make healthier choices. I have been more bold by actually sharing more about myself with others. I have done this by posting my blog on social media, talking about yoga, and getting to know new people. I also have been bold with making decisions with my career and beginning to look at and apply for graduate schools.
So this year I plan to do the same resolutions because I feel like they are general and attainable. But I do have some goals for 2017 that are specific. Here are my resolutions and goals:
- Live in the moment
- Make healthier choices
- Be bold
- Learn more about taking pictures with my new camera.
- Read more, watch less.
- Take the GRE.
- Apply for graduate school.
- Travel more. (California, St. Louis, New York City)
