2014 was a big year for me. It’s the first year that I actually started to feel like an adult. This feeling first hit me when Grant and I bought our condo in July and put our names on a 25 year mortgage. The second time it hit me was in October when Grant and I became husband and wife. I’m not entirely sure if I will ever feel like a full-fledged adult or what that really means because most of time I’m just racing to keep up with life. In 2015 my biggest goal is to define what I want for myself and to follow through with the steps to get me there. Since I’m mortified of failure I’ve had a hard time jumping right into anything. But being terrified all the time hasn’t gotten me anywhere. This year I’m going to explore what I’m passionate about and attempt to focus that into an eventual career. What I’ve been sure about for as long as I can remember is that I want to be my own boss. I’m not in a position to do that full-time yet but I know I’ll get there if I can be more focused and fearless.
Other goals for 2015 include:
Saying no to plastic grocery bags because laziness is not an excuse. We own the damn reusable bags, we just have to remember to use them.
As mentioned in my last post, I aim to read 15 books, not including comics…
Blogging regularly. I gave up on Thrifted for a good chunk of 2014 and it sucked. I’m a much happier person when I’m blogging.
Taking more photos sans iPhone. Yes, my DSLR is beast but the photos are a million times better than what my iPhone takes. I also miss being behind the lens.
And as with every year, I want to be more active and practice a healthier lifestyle. I tried spinning and bought a bicycle in 2014 (I loved the challenge of spin class). I’m a far happier person when I exercise and don’t eat crap food. I also bought a Vitamix and I want to use it every single day. Grant and I have talked about camping and heading to the mountains more this summer. I camped a lot more growing up on Vancouver Island and I miss waking up outdoors.
I’m optimistic about 2015. Each New Year is a metaphorical "fresh start" whih I could use right now. What are your goals for 2015?
