So we’re one month into 2019 and I feel like I can safely talk about resolutions without feeling defeated or overwhelmed.
(Me every New Years thinking about how I’m gonna disappoint myself this time)
So I’ve played the game:
1: Set resolution
2: Be really good at the resolution (usually lasts anywhere between 20 minutes - 5 business days)
3: Fall off the resolution train
4: Be really upset because this the 4th year in a row that we were going to get in shape, Kaley but we’re still eating Oreos and ice cream watching Grey’s Anatomy and NOT working out
5: Figure I’ve waited this long, I can just do it next year
6: Wash, Rinse, Repeat
(2018, but whatevs, same sadness different year)
I get it, New Years is a reset, a start fresh, a new turn around the sun... But I’m tired of always being let down by the time pre-Summer hits.
So I decided this year, I’m not setting a resolution. I’m setting one idea into motion.
(And no, I’m not jumping on your “Marie Kondo = Spark Joy” bandwagon)
What I really want to spend my time doing is learning how to enjoy my boredom. Learn a new hobby, learn to do something with my hands and get off my phone more.
(Why? Oh. Because she’s hobby-ing)
So the more I looked around, the more I loved what I saw! There’s ideas for so much, I just don’t know where I want to begin. I really like the idea of crochet or cross stitch.
What intrigues me most about it is the fact that I can wear or decorate with my designs, and I think that’s more rewarding than losing a couple pounds.
(And while witchcraft would take care of both, I don’t have the time or the goth clothes anymore :/)
So maybe the next time you see me, I’ll be sporting a new scarf... or something that is in the family of scarves.
Until next year, folks.
