Today we drive home from our trip to the beach. And I’m making a few resolutions. I know there are people who think resolutions are specious and overly optimistic, but it’s nice to think there’s a possibility to reset your life, to assess and reflect in the middle of winter. So here goes…
Overall I’d like to spend more time outdoors this year enjoying our area. Especially now that my “horticultural” job has gotten more and more computer-based. I’d like to try and walk or bike to work on the days that I don’t need to drive for event or marketing-related errands.
My second big resolution would be to take a more structured approach to my writing, rather than fitting it in around other commitments. I’ve got loads and loads of notes that I’d like to work into a feasible draft situation, so I’m thinking I can return calls a few days later, maybe the dishes don’t have to be done right today and all those sorts of things.
Lastly, I’d like to continue with some of the teaching/tutelage projects I took on this last year. There’s an element of sharing and learning that goes both ways with teaching and I definitely missed it. It was one of my resolutions last year, after a great volunteer experience I had while in Norwich.
Have you made any New Year’s resolutions for 2014? What are they? Also, what are you excited about in 2014? We’ve got a couple weddings coming up this year and I can’t wait. Do you have any trips or special events coming up? I’d really like to hear about them.
