Let’s start with the resolutions from last year which I didn’t quite accomplished:
Drink more water
I’m doing pretty good guys! I tend to forget about my water bottle sitting next to me on my desk, but in January I managed to fill up my Camelbak (750ml / 25oz) twice a day every day – YAY! I had to use the restroom every 10min though…
2015 started good with lots of exercise such as running, yoga and biking. That only lasted until August though. I don’t know why I stopped but that definitely proved to be a bad bad bad decision (hello +4kg on my belly – OMG that’s like being preggers and more!!!). Totally want to get into exercising again. Already signed up for a yoga class.
The new ones:
Do more of what makes me happy (and not others)
I like to make other people happy but sometimes I tend to forget about myself and my needs. I want to do things I feel good about and I want to tell people without feeling bad.
Learn a new language
I already bought some Spanish study books and downloaded the “Intro Span” app to get a basic vocabulary. My intensions are the right ones but it’s also hard to do the studying by myself. There is a lot of self-discipline involved. Let’s see how that goes...
Volunteer and give more to charity
A few of my friends volunteered in Macedonia, Greece and Croatia and I find it so brave and selfless! I donated money to them and to organizations they recommended to me. And even though I did not work as a volunteer just yet, I think every little help is needed. And as we all know: money is not everything. Even an open mind, a smile, a conversation or a little gesture such as sharing your food can have a huge impact on someone’s life. I want to support those who do great things for humanity and I want to be a better human. Big words I sincerely want to live up to.
The big ones aka life goals aka dream on:
· Carpooling with James Corden
· Adopt a pet
· Hiking a trail (Cheryl Strayed style)
· Flying in a light aircraft (e.g. Cessna)
· Save a life
· Be role model for my (not unborn) children
· Go skinny dipping on a beach
· Living in a foreign country (kinda did that already but I would like to live there for at least 2 years)
· Set foot in all 7 continents
· Get a photograph published
· Dance a whole choreography
I could go on forever but who has time for that. Instead, let’s start with one of the above!
