I'm feeling rather conflicted on New Years Resolutions this year. I still stand by the belief that a person can change behaviors and habits any of the 12 months out of the year and really shouldn't wait for 1 specific day to change their routines. But. I have been taking a few minutes to reflect on 2014 and taking note of a few things that I let fall to the wayside that I want to improve upon.
I'm going to work on creating more. Creating more food, memories, cards, friendships, income, crafts, designs, fitness goals. Creating of all forms is a huge release for me and it's something I want to continue to grow.
I want to become more knowledgable of what I'm putting in my body. We eat copious amounts of fruits and vegetables but sadly I don't know that much about the specific nutrients and benefits of them all! I would love to really read up on what it is we are eating on a daily basis.
I hope to be more kind to myself and practice several forms of self care…both big and small.
I want to grow my friendships. I want to do more than shoot a "Hi,howareya?" text with several emojis to my long distance friends. I want to spend more time talking on the phone and writing letters. I have a girlfriend in Washington ( my best friend Julia! ) and we've slowly started the habit of sending each other letters once a week or once every two weeks. Actual letters! I can't even express how much it warms my heart. It feels like a much more sincere form of friendship and it's something I want to work on for all my girlfriends.
I want to take less shitty pictures and far more intentional photos. When I look through my iPhoto I notice a trend of dozens of half assed blurry photos because I was too shy or lazy to work on getting just the right photo that I was hoping for.
I will be more nurturing to myself and those around me. I will be intentional + present with my actions and my words.
Happy 2015, friends! I hope you started your year spoiled in love and laughter.
