next year

If you've read my blog for a year or more you know I'm not a big fan of resolutions. But I do try to set some goals. I try to formulate a bit of a plan for the next year.
I'm not a real big fan of goals and plans, either, so it doesn't always work out that well.

Focus may be a better term. I try to find some focus.

I want to focus on feeling better. Making some diet changes, one little step at a time. First, no refined sugar. Second, add fruits and veggies. Third, decrease refined flours. We'll see where it goes from there.
You may know that I've had Insufficient SI Joint pain for over a year. It's finally improved to the point that I think it will benefit from exercise. So I'm going to start walking and I'm going to try Tai Chi.

Because of the back pain I've started feeling and thinking like I'm old. That's going to change next year. I'm going to remind myself that I'm only halfway there. I'm not going to surrender to dotage yet.

Writing will be a focus, but I don't want to talk about that. I've discovered that I do better when I don't talk about what I'm doing and planning to do with my writing.

Since I did the creative month thing in November I want to focus more on creativity next year. Make more art. Live more creatively and beautifully.

Relationships and friends are always a focus. That won't change.
God is always a focus. That won't change, either, but I'd like to take some time away next year. Time alone with God. I need it.

What about you? Do you make resolutions? Are you changing things for the New Year?


  1. I make goals, too. My resolutions are always failed attempts. So if I make a resolution it's to forgive myself for not keeping my resolution. :0) My goal this year is to be the best Robbie I can be. This will encompass several areas. It's good to have a goal. And it's even better to have grace for myself and that goal. :0) Love you Kay!

  2. Tai Chi might work for you. I need to do the no sugar thing but I am not very good at it! One of my goals is to not let certain people make me feel that I can't do anything right. Mom

  3. I like your goals. Sounds like they will increase your health and happiness.


I love to hear your thoughts!
