79: New Year, New Goals

Updated: Jun 12, 2023

Howdy! This week's blog post is less of an essay and more of a list of areas in which I hope to grow. Namely, I want to improve as a writer and a painter. I want to improve my time management. I want to work on my emotional stability. I want to be the best version of myself. Is that last bit do-able? Maybe!

How do I intend to work on these areas? Well, if I write and paint more often, and continue to seek out new techniques and tips, I'm bound to see some positive changes. As for time management, waking up earlier should solve that. It might also be worth it to organize my calendar, labeling when I should work on each task. Going to bed earlier means more day light exposure which should help with any potential vitamin D deficiencies which should boost my overall mood. Working on communicating with my husband so that we solve problems as a team, without allocating blame, is another method to explore. While I'm at it, I should try to be healthier in general, both for the sake of my body, but also because, in the words of Elle Woods, "exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy women don't kill their husbands. They just don't." Working out, eating better, should help to stabilize my mood.

I might pick up Habitica again. It's an app for gamifying general life tasks. I used it during 2020 to keep me on a basic routine, and it allows more freedom, schedule-wise, than calendar alerts.

Anyway, I'm not setting firm goals because I've fallen short in the past and found the experience demotivating. As usual, the goal is to be ultimately "better," which is just vague enough to be attainable. Thanks for stopping by. I drop a new blog post every Monday. Toodles!
