I read somewhere on the good old Internet about how a girl posted up a picture & a thing that she was grateful for, for 365 days. Not sure which article it was or where it was published, but it got me to thinking and evaluating things that have been happening in the past year or so for me. I know I made some New Year’s Resolutions last year, some of which I’ve achieved and others not so much.
Now is a good time as any to make some resolutions or goals for 2014. I’ve never been a huge resolution fan, I’d rather look at them as some goals to achieve and guide me for the year. I hope to review them in detail at the end of the year to see what I’ve achieved & look back at what life was in the year 2014.
First thing that I would like to achieve is to write more often here & document things that are happening in life so that I have some sort of memory of what went on. I know with life, study & all sorts of things, blogging daily won’t be something that can be achieved, but I would like to increase my writing frequency to document the big events in life.
Second thing that I would like to implement with this blog is to be thankful for at least 1 thing each day, although I might not post daily. With the things that go on in day to day life, it is sometimes easy to forget to be thankful for the little things in life. And it’s the little things in life that make life so colourful & interesting.
Thirdly, I would like to take more pictures each day. I have put this down last year too, but think this is probably an ongoing thing as I would like to improve my photography skills. Sometimes I think I’m just too lazy to whip out my camera or phone & I miss things, which is something that I don’t want to happen anymore. Learning to be more spontaneous with things & life will definitely help with this.
Lastly but not by any means the least, I would like to look at delving deeper into my hobbies, more so cooking and baking, and to see if there are any business opportunities in Melbourne to do with these. This one is pretty close to my heart as I’ve been wanting to embark on a business to do with either cooking or baking and would like to see some stuff happening in terms of that. I’ve put some ideas on hold due to personal reasons and the Melbourne move, but am now putting it out there so that I can hold myself accountable to it all.
On a side note, a few other things that I would like to achieve in the short term is to secure a job prior to the Melbourne move, complete my 3 week prac (starts next week, eek!!), finish my Graduate Diploma in Information & Library Studies, as well as settle well into Melbourne. I work best by setting small goals each day & working through that. It has taken me nearly 28 years to figure out how to understand my body is telling me, but I am taking it day by day & learning to love myself & life a bit more each day 🙂
