After an unbelievably disappointing 2013, I have done
something I never thought I would. I made New Years resolutions! They all
revolve around making a conscious effort to take full advantage of 2014 and
making it the best and most life-enhancing year.
This year is meant to be a turning point in my life, where I
actually take control of my life and starting heading down the path that my
whole existence has lead to believing is the right one.
The best thing that can come out of a bad year is actually
being forced to think about why it was so bad and what you actually want from
life – something that you don’t do when you are happily coasting along in life.
Normally the passing of an entire year makes me unbelievably
anxious. However, this year, I have actually made decisions regarding
where to take my life, and I don’t think I have ever looked forward to one day
of the year as much as I did New Years Day this year. I’m excited and hopeful…are rare feeling in my life lately.
Here are my resolutions…as silly as they seem I think they
I would like to become a yoga practitioner. Classes,
lifestyle all of that. I will be working with the activewear company Hard Tail
Forever at work and am increasingly drawn to the active lifestyle.
Get out of
Hopefully by August – October some of my planning will work
out and I will have a different home base for a while. The grass is always
greener on the other side, but I am bored here. Thinking London, Paris or LA.
A longer-term goal (but not too long) will be for Rob and I
to have the luxury to work remotely, my spirit needs to wander.
Be more adventurous with my hair and style
I spend my day looking at magazines, fashion and popular
culture. It’s all so fun.
Liberation! I am much too critical of myself and second-guess
myself way too much…this will force me get over it. Roomie and brother, Ken, suggested I take one a day –
challenge accepted! 365 selfies to come. #yearoftheselfie #selfish
Be deserving of good Karma
Sometimes I can’t help but attribute my bad fortune this
year to bad karma…I can actually name the day that I think screwed up my life
and wish I could go back to see if good karma would have changed the outcome. This
year I going to put positive energy into the universe and hope someday the
cosmos will remember my contribution.
