I’ve been thinking about resolutions a lot lately and how little I want to make any. You see every time I make a resolution I try for about a month and then forget about it or give up. I’m sure a lot can relate.
I just feel like there is only so many times I can say to myself; “I’ll learn French”, “I’ll start running again” and so on and so forth.
I want to have a year of unknown joys. I’m going to be heading to New Zealand and then heading to Europe which ticks off all my travel goals I’d ever make. If it leads to learning a new language, exercising or drinking more water bring it on. But I want it to happen naturally this year and not come with the added pressure that I will disappoint myself.
You see, when I made Travel part of my goals, resolutions and bucket lists I never actually pushed myself to do it. I had to just start and forget about it being a ‘dream’ and turn it into a reality there and then. Hopefully I can use this mindset instead of creating dreams I know I’ll let myself get away with not pursuing.
Here is to a year of the unknown but one that will hopefully be filled with happiness and adventure. I’ll still be setting myself mini bucket list items for the year to give some direction but they won’t be my be all and end all.
What I will have in the back of my mind to do this year will include;
– Meet a lot of new people
– Have my first kiss
– Maybe even go on a date
– Eat a lot
– Exit my comfort zone a lot more
Now it’s not much but it is enough to make me feel like I am aiming for something but it still gives me room to do whatever I want this year and not be tied down to resolutions.
I want to wish you all a very happy and adventurous New Year!
