Hello lurking lurkers! How are you? I am alright. It is cold here in the land of wooden shoes and windmills but it’s not like it’s freezing or anything.
As the end of a strange and turbulent is coming closer and it is one more day to go before we get to ring in the new year, I find myself returning to this poor excuse of a blog. On this last day of 2016 I am reflecting on life, on what the year has brought me and the world thus far and what I hope will be better in the new year. You know; Just the usual crap one tends to do when the end of a year comes closer.
Making new years resolutions is quite ridiculous, in my opinion it is anyways. It is pointless, I think. But I’m biased because I’ve tried making those lame new years resolutions several times in the past and I always fail. Why I always fail? Well… Because I am good at failing, I suppose. It is something that comes naturally to me. Or perhaps because the true desire to make those changes weren’t really there to begin with. I don’t know.
Yet here I am making a list of stuff I would like to change or do better in 2017. Why is that? Perhaps I just enjoy making a list of random stuff I hope to do better or accomplish in the new year. As a nice way to make myself believe that I am working on my personal growth. Perhaps? Challenging oneself isn’t bad. Even if it is just in theory. In the worst case this all will just be another long forgotten blog post with ramblings about nothing. Or I might actually get something done. That would be fun. I really should be nicer to myself more…
You know what? I’m rambling. Whatevers. Go see my list below.
A list of 20 things I want in 2017
- Have my own Christian business
- Enroll a Theological Study
- Enroll a Writing Course
- Finally finish that book I’m working on
- Speak my mind more
- See my favorite bands live
- Enroll in a kick boxing or other self defense sports course
- Pick up painting and drawing again
- Make my own music
- Go outside for a walk more often
- Do something new everyday
- Be nicer and happier to and with oneself and others
- Say hi to my neighbors more
- Visit my family more
- Smoke less
- Fix my bike
- Clean up the shed
- Have a healthier sleeping pattern
- Finally finish all my current Xbox 360 Games
- Watch all the good movies and shows
Well. Some things I put on that list are doable. Others are unrealistic. But it’s a nice random list of things I hope to do in 2017. Who knows by the end of 2017 I have a more interesting blog entry; with being able to share that I’ve actually done all 20 things I wanted from my list. Although I think it would be cool enough even if I managed to do half of the list. Some of it I could do. I think.
Do you have a list of things you want for the new year? Or do you just go with the flow of the river that goes wherever it flows? I guess the only resolution that seems nice is this: To be nicer and happier to and with yourself and with life.
Well my lurking lurkers. Here is to wishing you all a wonderful last day of the old year and loads of luck and positive vibes in the new year. Cheers and God speed!
