I feel like every year I set myself New Years Resolutions. Yet, by the time it gets to February I’ve forgotten that they exist. That is why this year I’m not setting myself specific goals, I just want to be… better. Cue Project 2017…
Don’t get me wrong, I actually quite like who I am as a person right now. However, I see this year as a taster more than anything else. I want more for myself. I plan to grow further. There are things that I want to do next year that I’ve missed about life pre-serious exams. I want to read books for fun again and actually be excited about learning. This year (Wow… isn’t it weird that 2017 is now “this year”?!) I want to get back to enjoying what I do.
A lot of the time I feel like I’m just going through the motions. My life revolves around studying for exams to get qualifications that allow me to get other qualifications that will one day hopefully lead to a “good job”. I miss the days of enjoying what I did and learning because I found it fun to have this new wealth of knowledge instead of learning for exams.
However, I’ve been thinking about it recently and there’s no reason why I can’t do both. You can choose to enjoy things, and if you’re not enjoying things, give yourself reasons to: set yourself challenges, take time out of what you’re doing to do things that you love! A lot of the time we forget (or, at least I do) that it’s our life and we have a certain amount of power to change things.
So, I guess my resolution for 2017 is to make it a more enjoyable year? I want to get back to what I love, because if we only have a limited amount of time in this world we may as well fill it with more ups than downs.
Ps. I’m thinking of making a series of blogs called “Project 2017” where once a month I review how 2017 is going and what I’ve done to fill my life with more enjoyment. If that’s something you’d like to see message me or comment or like this post and I may put it into action 🙂
Hope you guys are loving life and 2017 brings you joy!
Lots of love,
