It’s that time of year again, the time when most of the population resolves to lose weight, save money and become an all around better person.
That’s right, it’s New Years Resolution Time!!!!
Last year I made a conscious decision to NOT resolve to do any of those things. No, I would not allow myself to attempt that which many others have failed at year after year after year. Instead I resolved to make some realistic changes in my life:
Learn how to appreciate red wine: CHECK When I was in Italy I visited three different wine vinyards and learned all about the way wine is made. Then I got to sample! By the time I got back on Canadian soil I was converted to a red wine lover.
This year I am sticking with my trend of realism, although I may dig a little deeper for 2015. Here goes nothing…
2015 New Years Resolutions
Learn to cook: I am not exaggerating, I am quite literally useless in the kitchen. I can make a decent egg on a good day but my abilities start and end there. So this year I want to figure out this cooking thing and make myself something delicious.
Embrace the now: I have a tendency to forget about what is happening here and now and focus too much on what I don’t have. This means I under-appreciate what I have and I can can’t enjoy life just the way it is. Seeing as my life is pretty darn great, embracing the now is something I need to keep working on.
Run a 5k Race: I know, I know, I said I wasn’t going to resolve to lose weight, and I’m not. This is different. Resolving to lose weight is open ended and vague. Resolving to run a race is specific and there is a clearly defined measure of success. I’m aiming for late spring, check back for more on that.
