2011 seems like a good year to make attainable and indelible resolutions. Past years I unoriginally jumped on the “eat healthy and work out more” or “keep my room clean” bandwagons which I more so forgot rather than followed by mid-February. Being that I am posting my resolutions to my public diary, I hope it (as well as my followers) will stand as a permanent reminder to stay true to my promises. Speaking of which, the perfect lead into my first resolution:
1. Write more.
...whether it be in blog, poem, note, or story form, I need to find time for this hobby that truly makes me happy. Writing completely overwhelms me with a sense of pure satisfaction. Take note that 2011 will unquestionably be noted.
2. Run more.
... OK so I shamelessly fall once again upon the healthy habit bandwagon. But this time with a more defined goal: 2011 will see at least one 10K race, and after, the training for a half-marathon
3. Discover my “something interesting.”
... and own it. Recently I was asked to proclaim a “really really interesting fact” about myself for the Group Fitness bulletin board. What should be a simple task turned into an interrogation of my closest friends only to find what I already knew: my life (thus far) is not bulletin board interesting. Yes I have my quirks, but is there something I accomplished in my twenty years interesting enough that people would want to read it? So far, I think not. A wise woman once said, “You’ve got to ignite the light, and let it shine. Just own the night, like the fourth of July.” I will take this advice, ignite the spark inside of me, and strive for a 2011 composed of many Fourths-of-July.
