Resolutions and Rediscovery

I've been telling myself that I would write this post ASAP but, funnily enough, it took me 6 days to get it done. OK, 2 days because I had no Internet access before the 5th. But, I could have gotten it done sooner if I had really wanted to. What is the cause of my seeming procrastination? I guess I am a bit wary about writing down what I think I want to get done this year. It feels so...final that way. And scary. But, I am remembering all my holiday reflections and I have decided to bite the bullet!

Here they are:

1. I resolve to "rediscover" myself- to find out what I love, like, dislike, hate; what I stand for; what is important and what I can do away with; what I want the rest of my life to be like.
2. I resolve to make my 30's what I think my 20's should have or could have been. I have very few regrets about the decisions I made in my 20's and, honestly, I don't want to think about them. I've realized that they are dangerous breeding grounds for discontent and very unfair on reality. How can you do battle with 'what ifs?' right? But I do think that there was much I could have done in the way of improving myself that could have benefited not only me but people close to me as well. So I am on a mission to make this decade worth it- in every way possible. This year is the beginning. I want to live life to the fullest, to take risks, to stop being afraid. (Some support and encouragement is very welcome).

And that's it. Corny? Well, I figure, these are pretty tough tasks and I don't want to bite off more than I can chew. OK, on a lighter note:

1. I want to read a book a month, at least.
2. I want to save 10% of my pay every month.
3. I want to get a facial and a new blouse or article of clothing once a month.
4. I want to go to the gym regularly.

Much easier huh?

Well, cheers everyone! Wish me luck.
