Resolutions. Never. Last.
I always think it’s a good idea to make them. And I usually sort of do … but not until February. Why? Because once upon a time, I heard somewhere that it takes 28 days to make or break a habit. Which is basically perfect in terms of calendar days in February, save for that pesky leap year. It also means that January can be utilized as a practice month.
But Happy 2018 anyway!!
That all said, I would like to put
some the things in writing that I plan to achieve this year:
- Replace all forms of online dating with a variety of podcasts,
- Read at least two books every month,
- Complete three or more MOOCs in the calendar year,
- Complete my medical editing certificate,
- Drink more water,
- Learn to make awesome crusty bread,
- Become an Instant Pot ninja,
- Eat less fried foods,
- Become a regular at the neighbourhood gym,
- Say “yes” to more things (people, activities, etc.),
- Stop feeling bad about saying “no” to things (people, activities, etc.),
- Continue spending quality time with my family and friends,
- Actually get this dementia volunteering thing started (training has been postponed twice due to outbreak in the facility),
- Complete either the Seniors MHFA participant course or instructor training (bucking for the second one),
- Make it back to BC to see friends and meet babies before they grow up and go to college,
