So, what will I do to help achieve that? As you know, I am all about goals lately so I am using this New Year's eve to have some 'me' time and have a little wine and give my 2011 some serious thought.
Being single I sometimes fear that not having things to do is preventing me from meeting my real happiness goals. Granted my Chinese delivery guy is a white guy...I am not meeting my future husband reading or watching TV at home. So by having mini-goals throughout the year I hope that my universe will align and things will start to fall into place.
These are things I have come up with so far:
- pick my own berries
- see an opera
- lower my blood pressure
- cook more often (I used to but living alone hasn't seemed 'worth' it)
- go on at least one date a month
- send at least X resumes a month
- do things out of my comfort zone
- do more things alone
- take a trip somewhere
- volunteer more
- go to a book signing
- eat healthier
- ? find a higher paying job?
And my new year's resolution? No group gifts and no planning things for my family! A little nontraditional yes...but it is a source of stress. And getting in shape is so overrated. If I decide to do that, it will be because I am ready/want to not because 90% of the people want to do it in January.
I am looking for other ideas also, so if you have any - be sure to comment!
Hope you have a happy new year's eve.
