In an effort to avoid this the-only-way-is-down slope, I decided to go for something a little bit different this year. Something easy enough to achieve, something concrete and attainable (we've all done the "I will be a better person" one before), and best of all, something fun. I know what you are thinking: She resolved to start this blog, way to go Kate! You've done it!" Well, thanks for your support, but no, this blog is only a part of the much larger scheme at hand here. Yes, scheme. Ready for it?
Since my birthday is January 2nd, I am pretty much one age for each year. This year, I had the (mis)fortune of celebrating my 29th birthday. One last year of my 20's. Aaaand cue panic attack. But, being the bright-siding person that I am, I decided to turn it into a bit of a game - I do love a good game. So, each month this year, I have written down a goal for myself. Something I have been wanting to try, something that is good for my body and soul, or something that can benefit the people and places around me.
This blog is my motivation. If I fail to achieve a goal and no one was around to notice, does it still count as a failure?
Whether I have one reader (thanks Mom) or one hundred, this blog gives me a stronger sense of responsibility towards each of my twelve goals. It's going to be a great year. I've got that hopeful January feeling!
