How do you feel about New Year’s resolutions? Do you ever make them? Better question- Do you ever keep them?
In my case, creating a list of resolutions that I’ll stick to throughout the new year is something of a fantasy. It’s not that I don’t have goals, don’t get me wrong, and I’ve mentioned before that I very much like emphasizing these goals as I change the calendar and my moral, physical and emotional slate clears, but it’s rare that my resolutions actually define my actions in those twelve months that follow. Buuuut, despite my inability to fully implement these specific intentions, I can’t deny the joy I take in recording a fresh set of goals on January 1st (or 2nd ;).
Every year I strive to live in the moment, document more, work on my photography skills, do more creative writing, read at least 3 books (come on, girl, you can handle that), and take care of my body, but this year I have one resolution, discussed with my brother on Christmas night, that stands out from the rest. So without further ado, le resolution principe de 2014:
Kirsten, you must take care of you car.
2013 marks the year I bought my first car all by myself. I love my little VW Golf, aka Greta, and it’s time I started giving her the love, oil changes, and vacuum-seshes she deserves. So let it be written, so let it be done.
What are your goals for the coming year?
