Yesterday was my twenty-sixth birthday and I thought I’d share with you some of my goals for this coming year. Do you set goals on your birthday too? I like creating goals for the year to come so I have specific things on which to reflect when my next birthday comes around.
Eat well. I want to really increase my body awareness by listening to what my body is telling me. I want to love and take care of my body by feeding it healthful foods and drinking lots of water. I’ve developed many healthy habits over the years, but I know I can improve in many ways. What are your tips for eating well?
I want to find the depth I search for in people. I shared with you in a previous post about losing friends who would not or could not support my growth. I’m very grateful for my remaining close friends but long-distance relationships are just as hard with friendships as they are with romantic relationships. I want to find friends near me who are real, deep people. I don’t really do surface level friendships. I crave depth and I love sharing depth.
I want my love for depth to reflect in everything I do. I want to be thorough and thoughtful with the time and work I put into Clear the Way. I want to go deeper into my interests and talents, increase my knowledge of the things I really care about, and throw myself head first into the things I love doing just because I love doing them. I want to surround myself with the things I find beautiful so that I am full of positive energy everywhere I go.
I want to write more. I always loved writing as a child and teen. I want to spend more time writing with purpose for Clear the Way as well as writing to my pen pals. I want to focus on writing poetry again and keeping a journal. Do you keep a journal? What other writing do you do?
Honestly, I really want a car. I lost my last one in an accident and financial circumstances have kept me from obtaining another. I realize having a car is a privilege, but it’s one I am accustomed to and want back. Even if I still am without a car next year, I want to feel like I’m going places. I want to cover a lot of ground this year. You know, another road trip wouldn’t hurt either.
