No, today we are not going to talk about beach vacations, which I hope you are enjoying or will be enjoying pretty soon, but about something else. Today I’m sharing my half year resolutions. Do you remember how you create one of these lists sometime in January and you check them at the end of the year to see how it went? Well, I have never been the kind of person who sits down and does this.
But I guess I am getting older and for some reason I wrote my New Year’s Resolutions in 2013 and in 2014. I clearly remember because when I wrote one this past January I found the one from 2013 and got very excited. Truth is, I have no recollection of what I wrote, seriously, no idea. For that reason, the other day I decided to look for those resolutions in my computer. Guess what I found? Nothing. I have no idea of what happened to the lists. They just vanished!
Now what? Let’s not panic.In line with me getting older and more a little bit mature, I decided to come up with my half year resolutions and see what happens (you should do it too). I know it is summer and we should just be thinking about the resolution of making it to the beach as often as possible. Unfortunately for me, in San Francisco, summer, beach and warm weather don’t go together.
- Start a blog. Fine, that’s cheating, but I’m sure I wrote this down because I’ve always been intrigued by the whole blogging thing. How about, keeping the blog for at least a year? I hear blogging is hard, but it is fun too.
- Improve my photography. Well, let’s start by saying that I’m awful at taking photos. I understand the basics aperture, shutter speed, etc. but the problem is that I don’t take my camera out, and when I do, I don’t take pictures.
- Shop less. Just because it is on sale it doesn’t mean that I have to have it. When am I going to learn that? Mind you, I’m in marketing and I’ve worked in retail for a while. I should know better by now.
- Exercise regularly. Sometimes I’m lazy but when I workout I feel so much better after a workout…
- Get out of town at least once every two months, even if it is to our regular spot, but preferably to other places.
- Cook more. I LOVE to cook but after a long day at work, I just don’t feel like it.
- Have more time for hubby and I without our little pumpkin. We love her, but it is nice to have a conversation where random princesses or imaginary friends don’t come up.
- Be more organized. I have several notebooks to write things down and several calendars. I don’t know why I can’t just use one. I should be able to have everything in one place. For some reason, I don’t like to use the phone for this.
How about you? Do you follow up on your list?
