Even though I did create a Goodreads challenge, I want to read for myself more than anything. Of course I'm going to have review books here and there, but this year, I want to re-read as many books as I want or take as long as I want to read a book.
Blog for myself
Notice I said blog and not book blog! The thing is, last year I began a personal blog that I didn't update as much as I would have liked but this year, I will change that! I want that blog and this blog to grow and change and become something new.
Life my lifeThis sounds so simple and honestly, you would think that it would be. But I have anxiety and I tend to over think EVERYTHING. This year, however, I just want to enjoy life. I want to walk around my university and the town and see the wonders around me. I want to visit Charlotte more often and just enjoy being in a city.
I want to smile everyday and truly, truly be happy. I remember being on Twitter on New Years and I found this picture that said simply "Are you happy?" The answer at that time for me was no, I wasn't happy. But in the future, I want that answer to change. Of course I won't be happy all the time, every time, but I want to be able to find peace in the things I can't change or that don't go my way.
Some things that happened last year made me truly reflect on how I see myself and how I want to see myself. There are major changes I want to make that I think will help me get to a good place in my life.
I want to show the people I care about them that I do indeed love them. I want to build and strengthen my relationships with the people in my life.
Do something new
Or something scary. Or Something exciting. Or something unordinary. Just something.
And that's it! I know that this list isn't long at all and that's how I wanted it. I think that having too many expectations isn't a good thing. Too often, when we're let down, we let that bother us far too much. So this year, I want to focus on the little things as mentioned about. I want to make 2015 my year!
