|Doing a little New Year Cleaning. (Jan. 1, 2015)|
Here are the things I resolve to do (in no particular order)
1. SPEND MORE TIME OUTSIDE
I like nature. I like trees and grass. I like birds and squirrels. Granted I live in a place where there are more houses and cars than there are trees and grass. But still, there is a tiny bit of nature in my own back yard, and I should go out there more.
So, I hope to make some flowers survive in some pots this spring and make my back patio a nicer place, somewhere I'd like to spend more time.
Parker will also enjoy more time spent outdoors, and I'm sure Spencer will too, if he ever starts walking.
2. CREATE MORE ART
And here I use the word "ART" to define all creative endeavors. I want to make more altered art collages. I want to write more. More fiction and more bad poetry as well as my writing. I want to take more photos and pretend to be good at it.
This creating of more things will work hand in hand with #4.
3. KEEP WORKING ON POSITIVITY
That one kind of speaks for itself.
I'm going to keep trying to be a teeny-tiny itty-bitty less pessimistic this year than last year.
I'm going to try to think happy thoughts, and I'm going to try to do a daily gratitude list either in my journal or in a blog every night.
4. SELL MORE STUFF
I hardly sold anything in 2014, but that is hardly the buyers fault. See, I pretty much listed nothing for sale in 2014. So, in 2015 I plan to put my etsy store to some use. And some of that art I'm creating will be all over Zazzle as well.
You can't sell it if you don't list it.
5. TAKE CARE OF MYSELF
My depression is getting worse. (Like, suicidal thoughts kind of worse) I'm going to look into more natural ways to combat it.
I still need to get my blood pressure down before I go back to the doctor around May/June so he doesn't demand that I go on blood pressure meds.
That goes hand in hand with continuing the weight loss journey I started in September of 2014.
At the risk of sounding like a generic resolution maker, THIS is going to be the year that I DROP at least 50 of the 100 pounds I need to get rid of.
So there we go, 5 resolutions. Not ones that will be super hard to keep up with. Lets see what good things 2015 can bring me!
