New Year's Resolutions [2015]

Phew.  I actually made it to 2015 in one piece.  Is anyone else feeling that way today?  Steve and I stayed home last night and rung in the New Year on the couch with the cat.  We felt like we just needed to lay low and quietly push 2014 out of the way.  We had a sort of crazy year and we're both happy to move on from it.

Now, like everyone and their mother, I've been thinking about making resolutions for the new year.  A new year feels like a chance at a fresh start so it's a good time to think about what the coming months should look like.  I usually keep my resolutions pretty general so as long as I keep my themes in mind throughout the year then I feel like I'm successful.  This year I want to focus on health, career and enjoying my life a little more.

Those are really general (and generic).  It's pretty standard advice to break a goal down into achievable chunks.  It's also a good idea to work on things one at a time instead of getting overwhelmed trying to change six things about yourself all at once.  That just seems like a good way to set yourself up for failure.  With that in mind, throughout 2015 I want to try something different and work on one little piece that will help push me toward my end goals each week.  I figure that each thing will build on the ones before.  One of my goals for this blog is to consistently post 5-6 times a week so writing about this here will hit that and should also keep me a little accountable as I'll be sharing what I'm doing with the internet.

I'd like to dedicate Thursdays to the idea that we can resolve to be better all year long so that's when I'll be talking about it here on the blog.  But it'll be more fun as a larger conversation so feel free to check in with me on Twitter and Instagram.  I linked my accounts so that you can find them easily but I'm (@)girlofyarn on both of them.  You can just lurk and see how I'm doing each week or you can join in and do it with me.  It's up to you! :)

Leave a comment and let me know if you've made any New Year's Resolutions yet and if you have any tips on how to stick to them.  Good luck!
