New Year’s Resolutions
It’s been several years since I’ve adopted any New Year’s resolutions. This year I’ve decided to celebrate the end of the Bush era with a couple of other changes:
- Be more social. I’ve become more of an introvert as I’ve aged (and I think the loss of some of my eyesight has contributed to my introversion) but I’m going to try harder to engage with other like-minded people. To start the year off, I invited an ex-coworker and her husband for dinner last night and we all enjoyed ourselves a great deal. It was a good start!
- Look for new ways of finding like-minded people. There are two things I enjoy doing – reading and making cards. I’ll try to find other like-minded souls by starting new groups on the meetup.com website and see what happens.
- Move more. I hate to exercise and until recently I didn’t have to. I am, what is called euphemistically, petite and haven’t had any weight issues until fairly recently. I’m still not overweight but my body shape is changing in ways I don’t like. Plus I seem to enjoy food more than before, so that’s a double whammy.
I’m going to start with those three and see what happens.
