The beginning of this year has been a good one. And I don’t say this lightly. There are challenges in my life, and things that have gotten me down. BUT, and I say this with emphasis, it has started off really well. My mind is in it. Feeling whole and optimistic and (dare I say it) happy is everything. And to be honest, that’s where I’m at.
So, now let’s talk about challenges. I’ve decided 2016 is going to be a year of challenges. In January, I ran a half marathon. I somewhat half-assed this training-wise (but still succeeded in the end!) so I’m hoping to improve my mental dedication overall. Ha! I also purged my apartment and am pledging to keep it generally clean of junk for the year (or for life!). No more crap! Buying responsibly. We’ll see how this goes!
In February, I started nanowrimo with my friend Maggie! Generally National Novel Writing Month is in November, but since both of us were too busy (note: anxiety-driven), we pushed it back until Feb! She’s keeping me accountable for this seemingly impossible challenge. I am SO busy, guys. I love being busy, but it makes writing 1800 words a day PRETTY rough! Regardless, I’m going to push myself because writing a novel is on my bucket list. And so was running a half marathon. So, maybe this is the year of the bucket list!
I’ve got a lot up my sleeve this year. I hope a lot of it comes to fruition, but I think I’m off to a pretty great start. This blog post is also an FYI that I may not be around much in the month of February. There’s also valentines day and a wedding in the mix! Luckily, it’s a short month. 🙂
Wish me luck.
What are your 2016 challenges??
