Hi dear friends,
I’ve seen good resolutions or 2019 goal posts everywhere! Of course the new year comes with good resolutions every year
are good resolutions taken on New Year’s Eve really a good idea?
I will give you three reasons why it may not be so clever to make them on December 31st/January 1st
1) Chances are high that when you make them during your crazy night celebrating the new year you are as drunk as skunk!
Not the best idea as you will either make completely crazy/impossible/outrageous good resolutions (like telling your hot married boss that you are in lust with him and of course you will immediately message him, why not right?) either you won’t remember your good resolutions the day after (you are nursing a freaking hangover with a flock of wild loud birds who decided to nest under your scalp).
Why bother then right?
2) The year is so young you will put a huge and unnecessary pressure on your shoulders!
There is so much time to fail following your good resolutions! Why not wait the last quarter of the year and unders stress you will feel urged to accomplishe what you decided!
You know like meeting that deadline at work: you work better and with greater efficiency under pressure than beginning your task months ahead (then you begin and forget because you have other priorities and .. you rush by the end so it’s bad quality!).
3) In a world of copycats be an original!
Everyone makes good resolutions on January 1st! It is so “has been”! Try to go for February. Valentine’s day maybe? Or Easter with all the eggs? Or when on holiday in Summer? I don’t know but be strong, be different! Don’t be a sheep!
Now that I gave you these reasons not to make them on January 1st ….
Let’s get to my 2019 goals (yes yes the dreaded date is already behind us!)
Because yes I confess having goals is part of what makes us grow and walk further down the path. Become better a 2.0 version of ourself.
My 2019 goals are simple.
In my private life and in life in general I want to enjoy the moment. Be in the moment.
If life taught me something in 2018 it’s that life is unpredictable. You can’t control everything and you have to come to terms with this.
For someone like me, used to plan everything, be hyper organized and used to control so many aspects of my life it will be a huge challenge!
But I feel the need to let lose. Because right now I have many headaches and my intestines think they are on a 101 Mambo danse lesson every day! Not so good.
If you have any suggestions to reach that goal they are welcome!
In my blogger and reader’s life
I want to tone down on the ARCs. I have many coming in January but after that date I want to really accept only two to three ARCs max per month if that. I need to read all the books on my shelves or at least make a dent in my TBR. I also have many books coming in 2019 that I want to read. I want to get back to enjoy reading without the pressure of a schedule. Just the story and me.
As I mentioned enjoying the moment here above I will also probably write more reviews and less meme or tags. Or rather if I feel stressed, tired and under pressure I won’t add more on my plate. I will try not to feel guilty for not doing a meme one week. It’s that or burning out and as I plan on blogging for many more years I choose following my instincts and lsitening to my body.
I woudl like going back to discussion posts and interviews but it will depend on my health and energy. Because my dad’s death took its toll on me and I feel the shock now….
Let’s not forget that I will look into other themes but I don’t know yet if I will make a change or not.
Now let’s talk about your goals! Do you have some for 2019?
Thanks for reading!
