I honestly can’t believe that it is now seven days into 2015, already it seems like this year is going to go whooshing past. Per usual with the start of a new year comes the outpour of new years resolutions. And again here am I battling with myself about whether I should make some or just leave it be. I know I will never stick with what I plan. My aunt told me a few weeks ago that at her gym, January is a crazy busy month and then slowly dies down and it’s just back to the regulars. Proof that no one sticks to New Years resolutions?
My main problem is that I love to make lists and making a list of resolutions is oh so tempting. So tempting that I decided to make a general outline of things I want to do in 2015, rather than a list of specific goals. I think that in the long run its a better idea and will actually help me to change a few things in my life, even if only a little. I want to make 2015 all about being productive and getting the most out of life!
Be more Productive
I started my morning/afternoon by laying in bed till 3pm. I wasn’t even sleeping, just laying there thinking about different things. This is why I think it is very important that I start being more productive this year. One of my biggest anxiety inducing fears is that I waste all of my time which leads to the thought that I am wasting my life. It is not true in the least but these thoughts are something that I struggle with constantly and am hoping to change.
I don’t really want to be specific about how to change this because I know I will not follow whatever goal I set out for myself. Instead, I will simply say that this is something I will set out to change this year. Looks easy enough, right?
With 2015 being the year that I go on exchange (Eek leaving in less than a month!) I think this one will be easy to sneak in. I really feel like I stay indoors way too much that it is a tad bit unhealthy. I want to breathe the fresh air and see new sights this year! Another reason why this is so important to me is because it brings about new opportunities to photograph the world. I am very disappointed by the lack of photos I took in 2014, I am sincerely hoping that I can change that this year!
Get Out of My Comfort Zone
This one is mainly for when I go to Amsterdam. I want to get the most out of my exchange and I think to do that I have to start being a lot less self conscious about certain things and just go with wherever life decides to take you. This one is definitely going to be a struggle but I’m putting it here in the hopes that I will try my best.
Those are my two big plans for this year that I am hoping will change 2015 for the better! What are some resolutions or lifestyle changes that you have for 2015?
Until next time x
