I'm a little late on the New Years' resolutions train, but I needed time to think. Another year, another list of goals that I plan to enact in my life; however, instead of applying these objectives to the year as a whole, I will apply them day by day. I've learned that when I think too hard about the future, I completely stress myself out.
I've always had an old soul, but lately I've been feeling a lot older than I am. Even from a young age, I've always held more responsibility than my peers. Although I'm only in my early 20's, I feel like my 20's are slipping away too fast without me enjoying them. I want to enjoy youth while I still have it (or it still has me).
I am my own worst critic. Only in the past couple of months has the self-deprecation reached a level that is out of control. I want to get back to a place of peace in my mind about the things that I do or don't do; realizing that I am still loved by God, and by my loved-ones.
make something everyday
That "something" can be a doodle, or a paperclip sculpture, or a logo for a made-up company. This small practice will sharpen my artistic skills.
embrace my hometown
I want to explore my city more. The common complaint among my peers is that there is never anything to do in our city. Well, as true as that might be, there is always room for change. If we create events for ourselves and our peers to enjoy, the complaining would stop.
stop letting my good ideas sit in the "Drafts" folder"
There are so many posts that I've written that for some reason have never come out of the "Drafts" folder. It's a way of stifling myself. I need to just let them ideas flow!
get back to posting anecdotes
The posts from the past couple of months have been serious or laden with advice. I miss writing about the hilarious occurrences that so often happen in my life.
There are plenty more resolutions, but these are the main ones I wanted to share.
