Resolutions

It's that time of year again when people start evaluating their lives and making grand promises to themselves and the world. I think that every day, every moment is a time to grow; however, I do think the new year is a good excuse to take a calculated look at my life.

The most important thing for me in 2015 is to start knocking some stuff off my 30 Before 30 List. In specific, I'd love to aggressively attack my credit cards and my savings fund. I hate having debt, I hate thinking about debt, I hate worrying about money. So, the plan is to just pretend to not have any money for a while. I'm going to really focus on grocery shopping, not eating out, and eating good home cooked food.

This will help me not only with saving money, but hopefully with one of my other goals: being healthier. This means losing weight, but also just having a better life style. This past year I really surprised myself: hiking a mountain, walking 5Ks, and working out. I've back slid a little, but want to amp it up again as 2014 comes to an end. I want to be able to climb a bigger mountain without huffing and puffing the whole way up. Maybe I could jog the 5K instead of walking OR even run!

Another thing that I want to focus on this year is creating more. This includes making wonderful meals, but also blogging. I've been really good about getting content out every Wednesday and it really makes me feel happy. I absolutely love that I have such great people who read my blog, but even if you didn't, I like what I'm writing. I like looking back on things that I've written and seeing what's changed, not only in my life, but in my voice, in my style of writing. I like sharing my life with you, but also future me.

I want to work on really being present. No matter what I'm doing, I want to be one hundred percent into it. Whether that be having a conversation, writing, or even watching a TV show. I want to work on living in the moment, no matter what that moment may be. I don't want to half experience anything. Where I've been working on this lately, is at concerts. I feel like there was a time in my life, even now where I really want to take pictures while the band is playing. However, I have learned that none of the pictures I take are ever really worth it. So instead what I try to do is just be there, just really soak it in and then instead of showing a picture I can paint a picture with my words... A little corny, but it really makes the memories more vivid to me than just a shitty cell phone picture.

What are you trying to work on in 2015?

Until Next Time,
