I wanted to wake up bright and early to kick off the new year but ended up sleeping in past noon. Some might say sleeping so late is a sign of depression, but I counter that with my 4:00 a.m. bedtime the night before.
The gray day outside didn’t encourage much frolicking about, so I curled up on my couch with a blank calendar and blank leather journal and sketched out my year. This is a ritual I perform every year – though I rarely stick with the plan or the budget I set down on paper.
I’m determined to make this year different.
Goals for 2007:
- Save money
- Get fit and healthy
- Refresh my home
- Turn off the television
- Write everyday
- Travel more
- Learn a language
- Improve communication and relationships with family
- Look into returning to school for anthropology
What are your resolutions or goals for this new year?
