Hey everyone! Happy New Year! I can’t believe it is a new year and decade!
I am not 100% on blogging but I decided since it is a new year and I am in a better head space then I should start up again. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season! I know I did and am really happy with how the end of the year went.
This year what are some of the the things that you plan to either change, fix or continue in the new year/decade? I would love to read your plans! I plan to be a bit more organized, be connected to God a lot more and just be happy in general! I will explain each one further in the post.
I don’t really believe in New Year’s Resolutions or the New Year, New Me stuff anymore. I used to but now I don’t. Just after my great grandma passed in 2010, I realized that being a new you isn’t real because you take your heartache and depression with you into the new year and really every year after that. So I just decided to make plans that I try to keep throughout the year and if I don’t then I won’t punish myself for not following through.
Many of my things I have decided to do for the new year are really things that I have tried to work on in 2019 especially towards the end. I am trying to become a lot more organized, so I bought myself a pocket calendar for my bag and one big calendar for my desk at work. So we will see if it will kinda help me keep my dates in check for work and just things I need to do for the boys.
The next thing I am hoping to get better at is to be able to type what I want for here and actually being confident enough to press the publish button and not care if my blogs get read or not. This space is for me and if someone wants to read it, cool and if not then that is cool to. I just want to have that safe space of typing things and being able to be myself on a bigger platform than just my outside world and inside my head.
Some of my other things I want to do or at least attempt is eating healthier, eat less junk, and not eat out as much. I did well today (1/9), I stayed away from the restaurant near my job and ate the lunch I took in to work today! But especially for Lent, I plan to give up caffeine, soda, and coffee. Soooo we will see if I can do it!!
I also plan to be better with having a time to pray, do my 21 day challenges (that Helen Elizabeth does), and just overall have a better relationship with God. He has done some unexpected things in my life these past months, that I have been off of here and I am ready to just be better at praying and thanking God for everything.
This Saturday will be the first 21 day challenge of 2020 with Helen Elizabeth and I can not wait! I plan every month starting on the 11th, I will do my own 21 day challenge for the rest of the year and I really hope I have the motivation to keep it going through the end of the year!
Another thing I plan to do when it comes to my blogging is I won’t get upset with myself for not finishing a blog in one day and posting it. I will take my time typing them and hey if I don’t finish it in one day then i’ll continue it the next and maybe post it another day… like tonight’s post. These are all things I have to work on but I am hoping i’ll be okay with them!
The last thing I plan to do is be truly happy and today (1/10) was it. I was for once since 2010 truly happy and I can’t wait to tell you in my next blog post about it!
I hope you all enjoyed my post for tonight and I will hopefully be back soonish!
