Do you have New Year’s resolutions? What do you hope to accomplish in 2018?
Your list might be as short as … make it to 2019. That’s among my hopes for sure!!
I’m not a resolution maker. In fact, if you talk to most people who know me very well at all, I’m not even much of a planner, ever. I am a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of girl. I wait until the last minute to get ready for a trip, to prepare for a dinner, to do most anything. I just don’t like to plan.
I drive my friends and family crazy because I alone am not a planner!! Everyone else wants to know when, where, how much! It is understandable. I don’t mind others planning for me. But don’t leave it to me. I won’t do it.
Usually. This year, or for 2018, I have several plans that have come to me just during the month of December. Why is this year different? I have no idea!! Maybe I am finally growing up! (I doubt it … and what’s more, I hope not!)
This year, my plans (not resolutions) are to:
- Read through my Bible. All of the way. I have never done it. I’ve started it but never finished. I hope this year will be different.
- Work on this blog regularly. I hope I can find interesting content and actually grow it to become a useful site, much like SchoolGrants was before it. (SchoolGrants was a site I ran for many years that focused on grant opportunities and more for K12 education.)
- I hope that I can learn about and use more social media tools. I’ve been listening to a book on tape about Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and more. I’m am trying to learn how those tools can help me grow this blog.
- I am going to start going to FitSteps for Life. This is an exercise program solely for cancer patients. It is available at no cost to the survivors. Your doctor has to complete paperwork in order for you to participate. My doctor has completed his part. Now, I have to do my part. I hope that I will like it so much that I might start going to our community center for additional workouts.
- I want to continue my involvement with Cancer Support Community, but I would like to grow that involvement. I just started art class with my friend Rose (you saw her picture on my blog about visiting the Arboretum). She’s the best at (1) finding interesting things to do and (2) getting me to go along with her to accomplish them!!
- Visit the Arboretum and start taking pictures again like I did several years ago. I got in the dumps and quit doing things that interest me. I have a yearlong membership to the Arboretum now. I need to use it! If I do, you’ll get to see lots of pretty pictures!
- Get back on the agility field. My dogs hope I am successful in meeting this goal!
So, what are your plans? Your resolutions? It just occurs to me that mine don’t really have much to do with cancer, other than participating in some activities devoted to cancer survivors. Do yours?
