When we think about New Year’s resolutions, we usually think of something new we should be doing, or something we should change. For this year, I’m going to resolve a few inner issues that I have been gradually working on, but needed a true starting point to do it.
One of the first things, which will probably be the hardest, is to worry less. I tend to be a worrywart, because it comforts me when I know what is going on. I like being able to know how to resolve an issue or situation if I can. But here is the issue I do not know how to solve, and that I hope to discover, or maybe I have already discovered it, but need to really instill it: worrying less. I tend to get caught up in something and think of the worse possibilities. But you know what, I am going to enjoy this life, and just deal with things as they come. And like everyone else, I can be lucky or unlucky when making quick decisions. Obviously I will still plan things out, but will concentrate on calming myself before I get too overwhelmed.
Another thing I want to work on is my frustration levels, my anger you could call it. I get emotional too fast and then I get angry before I can even evaluate what I am feeling. That is the best way I could describe it, and that is all I need to say.
Another resolution is to really commit to building fitness into my everyday lifestyle, and keep it going for the rest of my life. I have delusional views about how my body looks, and I want to make it look better. I am not that upset about how I look, but I do want to look leaner. I am at 155, want to get down to 125. I think I can accomplish something close to that soon. I want to, and I have to. I have things to look good for, and me!
Another resolution is to really work on my writing and communication skills. I tend to think in run-ons and end up writing in them. I need to work on it by reading a lot more. Fiction and nonfiction alike.
OKay, resolutions, a’hoy!
