I have mixed feelings about New Years Resolutions. I remember the many times that I’ve made a resolution and forgotten it the next day and so I think they are useless. But there is a part of me that really loves reflection on life and then making some decisions to try to do something different. Life is a habit after all and we need to live like it. If we don’t like who we are or where we are headed, we need to make new habits to take us where we want to go. Maybe a little simplistic, but i still think there’s a lot of truth in there.
Last year i ran my first half marathon and found it very rewarding mentally, physically and spiritually. So this year I’m making a resolution to run, read, journal, and blog. I’m currently looking for a race to run in May or June, I’ve found a few books that I’m planning to read, received a new journal from a friend, and here I am starting my blog. So i think I’m ready to take on my resolution.
I just recently bought my first purchase using woot.com. It’s a heart monitor and watch monitor. I’m hoping that it will be a slight source of inspiration to kick start myself back into running. I’m also counting on the fact that if I’m journaling, like i do when I read, that I’ll have something of a source for inspiration for my blogging.
So here’s to a new year of attempting to live life with purpose and passion.
