2017 was a whirlwind of good and bad.
Fostered Mae Mae and her kittens
Got a new car
Started up the Lubbock Artist Collective
Went to Disneyland, Tennessee, and Alabama
I finished Inktober
We started making plans for our eventual move
Started the Blog!
Made new friends and tried new things
I got mugged
Leon went missing
The ten thousand times the A/C went out or the house fell apart
Though the bad were big, I'm glad the good outweighed it. This year I want to keep focusing on that and not let negativity weigh me down. Time goes fast and I want to make the most of it.
My resolution for this year is simple. I'm putting myself first.
Learn healthy habits and lose a bit of weight
Start letting go and delegating projects
Try new things
Learn to be more empathetic
Help rescue animals if possible
Keep some plants alive
Get rid of clothes, toys, anything I don't need
Cook through a cookbook
Take and print more pictures
Save as much money as I can
Read 24 books
Take care of my skin
Give up poultry
Be more organized
Don't let the deadlines stress me out
2017 gave me an idea of what I wanted to do and become. I do need to spend more time focusing on myself. I've created some wonderful things in Lubbock and met some amazing people that are going to help keep it going after I'm gone. Now it's time to work on me and push towards bigger things.
Moving is the main focus of 2018. I don't know when or how, but we're going to make it happen sometime this year. If I accomplish just this one goal, I'll be happy.
So goodbye 2017, you weren't great but you taught me a lot.
I'll be posting my January Goals tomorrow and soon I'll be wrapping up my 27 Before 27!
What are your goals for this year or do you have a New Year's Resolution?
