I heard a story on the radio where the man said, “I don’t do New Year’s resolutions because I think it’s important to be happy with yourself, and what’s the point of saying you’ll do something or other and a few months later falling into your old habits? It’s demoralizing.”
I can see his point….to a point. It is important to like yourself, and be happy with who you are. But it is also important (in my opinion) to try to keep growing and learning and trying new things. My typical list of resolutions is a mix of things I want to learn or experience and new habits I want to form.
No surprise, this year several of my resolutions are travel related. Going to see family, experiencing new places, and learning new cultures and languages. Should make for a busy year!
My travel resolutions are:
1) Travel to Chicago to see my sisters twice
2) Travel to South Texas to see my grandmother twice
3) Go to Europe (hopefully Norway) with Home Warrior, and learn some Norwegian
4) Go to one new place in the US with Home Warrior
Happy New Year!! I hope this year is a great year for you, filled with fun travel, lots of learning, and new experiences.
