Well, 2019 is here! Time seems to fly by much too fast these days.. I’m ready to embrace the new year, with hopes of it being a great year. Fingers crossed that it’s better than 2018…I had some rough times last year. I’m still struggling with Ulcerative Colitis, but thankfully the headaches have been significantly better. One evil recedes as another arises. I’m hopeful that I’ll be able to become healthy again this year.
New Year’s Resolutions are always things that I set my mind to do, and then hardly every accomplish. I’ll stick to something for maybe a few months, then start slacking. I don’t know about you, but it’s a lot easier said than done, especially when life gets in the way of our goals. Well this year will be different.
For my resolutions, well, I have quite a few. I plan to finally finish the book I’ve been working on for almost five years, and hopefully have it published. Of course, working out and exercising is at the top of the list as well. Being healthy is a priority, especially now that I have an autoimmune/inflammatory bowel disease. I would love to start yoga. It’s supposed to be great for relieving stress, which I need. Stress is a trigger of Ulcerative Colitis, so anything to help! I’ve also simply heard great things about yoga, and I’m very intrigued.
Going to work on a regular basis is a huge one for me. I’ve been wanting to do this for so long now, but my health keeps getting in the way. I’m determined to work, so my body will just have to be good! Working gives me a sense of accomplishment that I’ve been dearly missing these past six months. Cooking more is another one. I love to cook, but I never want to put the time and effort into it. I won’t let my laziness stop me anymore!
Riding my horses on regular basis is one of the things I’ve been wanting to get back to for years now. Again, my health has been a detriment in this area. But now that I’m feeling better, riding is going to be a priority. It’s good for the horses health and happiness as well as my own. It helps my mood and spirit stay uplifted, and it’s relaxing. Riding horses really is therapy, and I just love it so much.
Something that isn’t as important, that I’m not dying to do but I would like to, is working as a waitress part time. I feel like it would be good life experience to work in an environment where I’m not in my element. I’m hoping it would be great learning experience as well as a way to make a little extra money. I’ll be getting married in only a few years and I need to start saving up to start my life!
There are so many things that I want to do, need to do, that I’m overwhelmed and excited at the same time. Needless to say, I’m ready for 2019 and what it’ll bring me! I just have to pray that I can handle everything that comes my way, and that I can accomplish everything that I set out to do.
Have you set any New Year’s Resolutions? If so, I wish you luck in fulfilling them. Our journey is only beginning! Let’s make it worthwhile!
