As per my usual routine, Chinese New Year marks my second chance at resolutions/goals. Doing a quick review of my goals and my overall plans for this year, the only thing that I’ve really stuck to was the reading goal. I think that rather than following my usual plan of rethinking my goals for the year, I’m going to stick with them this time around. I know it’s weird because I usually think of this time as my second chance to get resolutions going and it’s also the perfect opportunity for me to really just put a focus on things that I know I can accomplish.
But 2018 is the year of trying things so rather than changing my plans to do something I know I can achieve, let’s keep a focus on things that will be stretch goals. I’m going to stick with everything rather than taking a step away from a challenge that I set for myself.
That being said, as a way to celebrate this year, here’s what I’m doing for my second chance.
I went out and bought myself a new shirt to wear today. I spent last night doing an exfoliating face mask so that I can wake up with new skin cells and I’m focused on making sure I get oranges today.
Overall, I do see this as a second chance for myself. I was traveling during the start of 2018 so I didn’t get a good chance to really start the year off the way that I would have wanted to in terms of getting my life in order and getting everything ready for the new year. Don’t get me wrong, I loved that I was able to start off the year in another country and get the chance to actually be doing what I love. But I also love organizing and feeling like I have some semblance of control over my life. So coming back from my trip and having to get everything figured out while jumping right back into work was a bit on the hard time. This is my chance to actually just try and make sure everything is in order for this second chance.
I’m very excited to do all my favorite organizational activities and get life ready for me. It’s also amazing that this new year happens to be on a Friday so I have the weekend to really just focus on myself and start this off right.
So here’s the new year, challenges and stretch goals.
