Every year I make huge resolution claims - I will lose 20 lbs., I’ll learn Spanish, I’ll meditate daily, I will learn to play guitar. Of course January generally goes well, but I have never successfully stuck to a resolution and as I look back at all the extreme goals I realize many are almost impossible to achieve. And why set myself up to fail? The inevitable disappointment as my 30th birthday approaches and I am STILL not fluent in 5 languages and I never did take that accordion lesson. So this year, I resolve to do more things that make me happy.
I just want to do more! I want to take classes, and explore new places, and meet new people! They say you regret the things you didn’t do more than the things you did. I want to create more special memories with the people who make me happiest. I want to fall in love with new places and hobbies.
I look forward to reflecting on this year and all of the things I did for the first time and all of the moments I spent excited, relaxed, challenged, scared, proud, and in love.
