I’ve never been one to make resolutions, but inspired by the one word challenge I decided to pick a word for my goals for 2015. And for me, that word is COMMIT.
I have a tendency to start things, not commit to them because I get discouraged, or distracted, or, to be completely honest I just want to sit on my sofa and watch netflix. So, in 2015 I want to commit, and with that in mind, I’ve made some very high level goals:
I am committed to being more organized. I am a messy person and I always have been AND I know exactly why this is and have never really done anything about it. Why am I messy? Two reasons: 1. I keep EVERYTHING and now have a bunch of stuff that I don’t really need but am too scared to throw away and 2. Most of my stuff does not have a defined “home” so when it comes time to clean up things just get put wherever there is space..or in shopping bags…or on the floor of my closet…you should see my desk, it is the perfect example of why I absolutely need to be more organized. I haven’t actually come up with my plan for how to do this yet…but I’m working on it.
I am committed to getting into better shape. I’m very happy with my body but I know that my flexibility, strength and cardiovascular health need a lot of work. I’ve never been one for the gym so instead of getting a membership that I never use I’m thinking I’ll start with yoga and learning to run, which I admit, scares the crap out of me.
I am committed to taking better care of my skin. When I was younger I had terrible acne, and I was vigilant. I had strict routines I followed without fail and by the time I was 24 I had clear skin with no sign of my 8 year struggle with spots. Funny thing though, once my skin cleared up my routines completely disappeared and now after years of abandonment my skin is mad at me. It’s constantly dry and dehydrated and needs some TLC.
And last, but not least, I am committed to this blog. I definitely jumped into this without a plan and my commitment wavered because of it. I’ve spent a lot of time over the last few months thinking about House by the Bay and the direction I want it to go in and, armed with my plan, I am really excited post more regularly and share all the exciting projects I have planned.
I’m excited and a little scared (okay, a lot scared, let’s be honest here) but I’m COMMITTED and I’m looking forward to sharing my progress with you.
