2014 is over and good riddance. It was a rough year but all I can do is learn from it and focus on what's to come for 2015.
Which of course got me thinking about what to do for myself in 2015. And so it goes, I'm focusing on me:
|Best time to date... but can be better!|
Present - Hi my name is Natalie and I'm addicted to social media. I need to take a step back. It really hit home for me when Goodreads told me I only read 6 books this year because that's not normal for me. I've been slack-a-lackin as I still have books from Christmas 2013 that I haven't read and a bunch more Santa brought me just 10 days ago. I need to stop checking social media when I'm laying in bed and pick up a damn book.
Trusting - I believe the saying goes let go and let God? Yeah, I need to stop stressing over what I can't control and as Elsa sings, "LET IT GOOOOOOOOO"
Creating - I need to write more. When I recently transferred a running draft of ideas I was saving as a 'composed' email into my Google docs, I found out it is 6 pages of material. All of which needs to be expanded on as these were just short clips to remember. PLUS I only wrote 7 blog posts this past year, as opposed to over 30 each of the previous 2 years. I need to keep up with writing because it's something I truly enjoy.
Lastly Grateful. I am going to keep a journal where I write down one thing I'm grateful for each day. No matter how tough my day is, I strive to find one positive aspect in all the negativity.
I've set my resolutions to better myself in 2015 and I wish all of you the best for the upcoming year. 2014 can't say I'll miss you, but bring it on 2015.
