My blog writing has gotten super rusty. I love when bloggers are open and share a glimpse of their normal human lives in their blog posts, but it doesn’t seem to come as easily to me.
I’d like to focus on letting go of worrying about what others think. Looking back, I realize how often I torture myself over-analyzing a situation repeatedly or feeling guilty about something I said or did (or didn’t say or do). This year, I plan to focus my attention on the things I can change rather than mulling over the things I can’t.
I’d like to get more sleep and learn the art of waking up. Sleep (and stress) hugely affects my mood. Ideally, I’d start each day pleasant and prepared.
I’d like to spend more time documenting my adventures. At the end of last year, I finally put together our wedding album, and it was so nice to be able to look back on the photos and reflect on our wedding. I’d like to do more blogging on the trips we take and get better at taking photos and editing them.
Finally, I’d like to stop my habit of mindless Facebook scanning. It’s not productive. I’m always wishing for more time in the day, so here’s my opportunity.
