In honor of my health resolutions this year I am drinking brewed coffee with full-fat coconut milk. A far cry from a frosted mint mocha. What are you drinking?
New Years Resolutions can be so cliche. Yet, I find myself eager to start the new years and remedy things in 2016 that I wasn’t satisfied with in 2015. It can be so easy to fall in a rut of self-pity this time of year. Too many sweets added to the extra pounds that I have already accumulated. I find I am not where I want to be in my career as a writer. On top of some health issues I have. All together it’s overwhelming and I feel helpless to change. I am sure I am not alone in this feeling.
It would be easy to surrender to that feeling, instead, I am using the New Year as an opportunity to change what I don’t like about my life. There is no better way to do this then setting goals. Throughout my life, I have had different training on goal setting. The most I remember is a goal should be something measurable and obtainable.
My goals are to lose weight, query two books, fulfill all my reading challenges, and publish one book. I am setting manageable mini-goals to work up to these bigger goals. It’s good to tell somebody what you are planning because it will hold you accountable. I’m telling the whole world. Ha ha! I’m ready to take this new year by the horns and make some much-needed changes!
How about you? What are your goals for the year?
