Anti-Resolutions

Years ago I decided I would never set New Year’s resolutions. I did this as a way of protecting myself from the mental bashing that would inevitably ensue when I never achieved let alone even started those resolutions. It’s all about knowing yourself.

This year is no different, but I can’t help finding it serendipitous that I wrote a post about skills I wish I had that includes learning another language, see it here, and for Christmas my mother decided to get me this:

Of course this cute little calendar isn’t going to make me fluent in Japanese but it is certainly an unexpected step in the right direction.

Included in my little list I also wrote about wishing I had the skills for running. I’ve actually tried in the past but was discouraged I could never get the breathing right. Two of my fellow bloggers Bor Bor and staystrong10 not only provided encouragement but tips on how I can train properly. These tips actually got me excited to try running again. Even if I never get any further than that, I want them to know how much I truly appreciate them and their positive words.

Perhaps life is finding a subtle and gentle way of guiding me into some goal making. Perhaps life is a strange mix of coincidences and I’m making connections that are not really there. I’m going to try to believe the former. This will be a nice change of pace from my typical over thinking, pessimistic self. Let’s hope it lasts into the New Year 🙂
