so when new year's day came along, I decided that this year I am going to get up and do something. not only will it keep my mind preoccupied and away from the dark side, but it will also challenge me to become a better person, which is my ultimate goal. for the past couple of days, I thought about how I wanted to do this - I have so many goals in life and honestly life is too short. then I thought, why don't I make a list of 12 things I want to get accomplished this year and challenge myself to do it each month.
then I saw the rest of the blogosphere came up with the same idea. (really? I thought I was a freakin' genius for this one!) oh well. that shouldn't stop me from pursuing what I want. one of my new year's resolutions was to do more stuff for myself, so I'm not gonna hold back.
here's my tentative monthly to-dos list (most of them stem from my 2011 resolutions):
- no fast food and cook meals at home
- exercise daily
- spend more time reconnecting with chris
- take more pictures
- explore more unique and local places to eat and be entertained
- write more poetry
- do volunteer work
- spend more time outside
- finish decorating tha crib
- no tv
- dress up
I also want to dedicate myself more to blogging and not just about my boring, depressing life, but maybe ways on how to get yourself out of a hole and realize how great life is. basically, my blog is going to have a much-needed make over soon. ;)
