I usually post a what I accomplished in 2017 with a what I hope to accomplish in 2018. I’m choosing not to do that this year in favor of just highlighting some small projects that I’m working on for myself. Like, I’m going to make a tremendous effort to write in a journal every day (or near every day). The sweetheart had gotten me this nice Zelda stationary set from last year that I’ve never used. I finally opened it the other day and realized that the journal was unlined and actually kind of nice. So I’ve dabbled off and on with bullet journaling and thought this would be a good opportunity to take advantage of this method for this journal (that’s not to say I won’t just write a traditional entry). I think ultimately it’ll depend on my mood.
I also started a self portrait 365 because why the heck not. These first two pictures has involved me making faces while snapping the picture. I also realize that if I succeed, I’ll look back at those pictures and realize that I look really tired in them because I’m still recovering from the doozy of a head cold the sweetheart shared with me.
So, during my week and a half off work, I slept most of it away or laid in bed feeling like death. Between those periods of time, I did work up my blog plan and post ideas for the year. I still have some fine tuning things to do, but I’m feeling pretty positive about this year in general from a blog stand point.
Will I hold myself accountable to the things I’ve prepped and would like to do? And how will I hold myself accountable for those things? I’m working on that part because I don’t want to feel an obligation to share everything here, but at the same time, I know it’s a good way to get encouragement and to keep going on a long term project.
For the mean time, I’m just going to continue trying to do simple small things and enjoy my little moments of joy and success as they come.
Here’s to a new year!
