For the most part, I usually set goals or resolutions for the new year.
In 2013 I had 18 things I wanted to accomplish. Just looking at that list I can tell you I bombed it.
In 2014 I set just 10 goals. Smart thinking on my part. However, I only finished 1...maybe 2.
In 2015 I took a different approach. I had just read the book Just One Day, & I'm pretty sure that was the same time I read The Happiness Project. I decided I wanted to live in the moment more.
Last year I set 3 goals which had sub goals...which really meant I had a shit ton of goals...fail.
So this year I'm saying screw resolutions & goals specifically for 2017. I already have seasonal goals & my 29 by 29, both of which ultimately come from my 3rd 101 in 1001 challenge. More things to do & accomplish is not something I need to add to my plate. I'm going back to picking a theme. In 2017 I want to discover.
I want to discover more of who I am.
I want to discover what I'm passionate about.
I want to discover a deeper relationship with God.
I want to discover love in every meaning of the word...family, friendship, romantic.
I want to discover the little things in life.
I want to discover the DFW area, & Texas in general.
I guess this could kind of be seen as almost the same as my living in the moment theme. Ultimately I don't just want to exist this year. I don't want to get into a funk. I want to discover new things & live life to the fullest. 4 days in & this year hasn't exactly started the best. But, I'm not going to let a few days determine my whole year. Each day is a new chance to discover something new & to start over.
I started a bullet journal this year & the quote at the top is the first page of the journal.
