Year End or New Year Resolutions

Do you set yourself Resolutions or Goals for the New Year? Do you go over them and check them off the list as you move forward every single month?

I have a few goals every year, but never quit drinking, I don’t drink that much for it to be an issue. I don’t smoke so that is not a problem.

I definitely make goals to be happy, to be healthy, to save money, and to find love. I struggle with saving money because I am always working on paying bills off, but the minute I have one paid off here comes another one. Never ending life cycle, but I’ll get there. Just lessons you learn as you grow. I’ll be honest I was never taught about money growing up, or budgeting, and all that mess you are supposed to know. Oh well, better learn it now instead of never at all.

I am learning how to be happy with my life, and myself. It isn’t easy, but I am getting there. Do I miss being in love with someone? Yes, but I am learning to love myself more because I have to look at myself everyday, and deal with my light and dark everyday. I’ve not met any guy who can handle it, they think they can, but when it comes down to it, they walk away. This has been my biggest issue, just loving myself first.

My health is a big thing for me. I am all about making sure I stay healthy because my body depends on me putting good stuff in it and avoiding all gluten and dairy. It has been an adjustment, but once you get used to it, it does get easier. Plus it’s nice to have places that will accommodate all of that too. Believe me grocery shopping has gotten easier. I mean I still allow myself ice cream especially Cookie Dough Ice Cream.

As for Love, that has been my biggest issue. I always hope for love, hope for having someone in my life who wants to be with me, wants to spend time with my family, wants to go to Church with me, wants to just help me calm the craziness of my overall world. It’s definitely a goal of mine to have someone in my life who sees me more than just a sexual thing. I mean if I do that to a guy and we have an understanding then that is fine, but if we don’t from the start and emotions get in the mix then we have a problem.

I don’t make resolutions to workout more or anything like that. My life is super busy, and to be honest I never know what I am doing on a daily basis. I know I need to get back to the gym, it made my life so much easier when I did, and it tend to center me as well. If that makes any sense.

Tell me if you make any resolutions? Do you stick to them?
