This year brought many changes into my life, from selling my home and moving into an apartment to becoming a cat lady for the first time. If you’ve been following the blog, you also know it is the year I completed my first draft of The Story. The Story has been on my mind for over a decade, and all previous attempts to get it down fully have failed. So I count that as a major success of 2017!
What’s next for 2018? Revise that story, of course! I don’t know what I’ll do with it when I’m done, but I do want to finish it this year. We’ll see what happens then. My goal is to do something with it every day and maintain that forward movement.
Other goals include some in the health department, because who doesn’t want to be healthier? I am going to train for a half marathon, and also need to lose around seven pounds and an inch and a half off my waistline. The half marathon training and the weight goal should work well together! I suppose I’ll also need to eat healthier, so at least until the seven pounds are gone I’ll use Cronometer to track my food.
Last year, I completed vision therapy. I’ll still go back to visit about once a month now, but it is on me to keep up with my daily exercises. For this, I’ll use my trusty Brock String, a high tech invention consisting of a string and some beads.
While this goes towards physical health, yoga is also great for mental health. I hope to do some every day, and journal as often as possible. They’re building a hot yoga place next door so I’ll need to check that out once it opens!
I already enjoy the daily readings during breakfast, so the plan is to continue there. There are also some spiritual books on my list to read.
Speaking of books, I want read all of them! Just kidding. If you saw my post earlier this week, you’ll know I read more than one a week this year. My count rose to 55 since that post, so let’s aim for 60 next year!
What are your goals for 2018?
