A few resolutions
Sorry I’ve been a little absent over the last few days or so – what with Christmas and then spending New Years in Hamburg* I’ve only been able to have scheduled blog posts pop up here and there – but now I have some more time to sit down, sip some coffee and write something more personal. (*I’ll be posting some more about Hamburg later in the week.)
After looking through my roundup of 2011, and thinking back over 2012, I realised that I did have a few resolutions that I wanted to make. Things to improve, things to continue with and things to stop doing!
Exercise - I definitely need to be exercising more. I’ve been browsing dance classes which are held in Brighton every week – I really want to get more active and a little bit fitter, whilst having fun. I also need to get back into yoga. Plus, hopefully this will help me stress less!
Blogging - Continue to grow and spend more time on paperbagblog. Take better photographs, write better content and consider taking on sponsors. I also want to take part in the ‘Photo per Hour’ challenge!
Reading & Writing - This sounds so stupid for a writer – but I just don’t seem to find the time to read! Of course I am addicted to reading blogs, and I do find the time to flick through my favourite magazines – but actual books? This needs to change. I do write daily – numerous times a day – but I want to write more.
Eating & Drinking – Less chocolate, more home-made raw treats, and much less drinking! I really want to use my cookbooks more, too.
Explore & Inspire - Walk around, get out of my comfort zone, explore my surroundings and dream more. Go to the cinema more often. Go to more galleries. Be more spontaneous.
Save & Spend - Spend less money on random clothes and more on items which will last me years. I’ve never really been one to buy anything too wild or pricey, but I can sometimes buy cheapy items which inevitably go straight to the charity shop via a few months in my wardrobe – sometimes still with their tags on. I also need to save more money – my savings account is embarrassingly empty, so once I’ve got myself on track I’m going to start filling that back up again.
How is 2013 treating you so far? Did you write any resolutions this year?
