Ways to Go

It’s that time of year again. When all of your Facebook friends start working on their “New Year’s Resolutions.” I personally gave up on resolutions years ago. (Ok, not that long ago, I’m only 18, so…) But all I can say for 2014 is: “I got a ways to go.”

If there’s one thing that I’ve learned since I moved out, it’s that I really need to take control of my life. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not addicted to drugs, and I’m not living on the street, but there is a whole lot more that I need to take into my own hands, instead of running on autopilot.

  • I want to lose weight
  • I want to start going to bed on time
  • I want to start waking up on time
  • I want to eat healthier
  • I want to be more spiritual
  • I want to procrastinate less
  • I want to figure out what I’m going to do with my life

These are just a select few. Trust me, the list is long. But according to Danielle Laporte, who wrote a great book called The Desire Map (I have yet to read it, oops), goals work better when they are feelings rather than ideas. So, in 2014…

  • I want to feel healthy
  • I want to feel refreshed when I wake up
  • I want to feel skinny
  • I want to feel connected with God and the Universe
  • I want to feel preparedness
  • I want to feel confidence

I think, when we feel these feelings, they can inspire us to do the daily activities that will make us feel this way. So, wishing you all a Happy New Year, and good luck on all you goals, we’ve all go a ways to go.
