Goals for 2022

I really should re-think about how I go about these goals. I don’t think I’ve particularly kept them in mind the last couple of years. 😛 I’ve just let the days unfold. Though I suppose I couldn’t be blamed for that, what with the pandemic steamrolling over everyone’s plans.

This year… I want to be the best version of myself. Which is, I suppose, the general sentiment underlying all of these yearly resolutions.

To begin with, I want to be more present. I want to be fully engaged. My biggest barrier to that is mindless Internet surfing and TV watching. It is hard not to be attached to a device, especially since many of my friends and family are overseas, and even the ones here in Australia, I can’t see in person as much as I’d like to, what with the pandemic still going on. But I’m continuously seeking to strike that balance.

I want to be healthier. I need to get back into intense exercise. While I’ve done some form of exercise most days of the year, it’s mostly been walking or yoga. I couldn’t do dance classes with all the moves when we stayed with the in-laws. Even at our house, I’m iffy to do all the jumping around on timber floors! We’re planning to clear out the garage so I can have a little dance studio, but given the garage is still a bit of a mess it might be a while!

I want to take more time for my mental self-care. I did a bit of meditating, a bit of journalling last year. I want to make those into stronger habits.

Other than those things, I’m keen to just keep going with my hobbies… keep baking, sewing, reading, playing the piano and getting better at Spanish.

In summary, no big changes planned for this year, just little pivots day by day. 🙂
