I’m hardly a living in the moment type of person. In fact, all I do is work; leaving me little to no time to do anything close to ‘living’ life the way one should.
But, setting goals and resolutions at the top of each year has never been a favorite habit or activity of mine either.
For the most part, we fail at them unless we’re truly goal oriented. At least that’s how I feel.
During the whole of 2019, I set so many goals for myself, made so many plans and went through with ZERO of them because something was always coming up and getting in the way.
And if you’re lazy like me, I’m sure you enjoy a good excuse to back out of things.
I’ve been thinking for a few months now, and I would love to hop on the ‘New Year, New Me’ train and dive straight into big changes and exciting adventures and activities.
Can’t do it. Don’t have it in me.
HOWEVER, the one thing I really want to do in 2020 is to be more present in this life of mine. I feel that so many of us take for granted the gift of life that we’re given. We take advantage of the fact that we are so blessed to go where we please, do what we please day in and day out, when there are so many in the world who can’t.
As I said in the beginning, all I do is work. And while that’s fine, because I am an adult and have bills, I would also love to get out and LIVE. See more of the world, be around family and friends that love and miss me.
As I’ve seen all of December, life is short and you can be here today and gone tomorrow. I don’t want to miss out on things anymore.
So, that’s my very first, one and only goal/intention/resolution; LIVE.
The workaholic in me is cringing hard as I type this, but Sis will be so happy when she learns how amazing it feels to relax.
I pray that everyone had a very happy and safe new year! I hope that everything is off to a fantastic start.
Please, in the comments, tell me what your goals/intentions/resolutions for 2020 are. Would love to read them.
