Resolutions

“Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each New Year find you a better man.” — Benjamin Franklin

Ben always can be counted on for some sage advice about life and the welcoming of a New Year is no different.  This year is my first as an officially married woman and I’m happy that I will not be planning a wedding this year. However, we have the fun of planning our honeymoon, huzzah!

 

Many resolutions will be attempted this new year…mostly things that I should have done years ago, but have put off for a variety of reasons.

  1. Open up at least 1 IRA
  2. Visit as many National Park sites in New England as I can
  3. Hike at least 3 times
  4. See a MOOSE!
  5. Get happier at work somehow

There are others, but these are the top 5 for next year beyond cleaning up the basement. Purging is the name of the game!

New Beginnings

They say that it takes two weeks of doing something every day to make it a habit. Obviously, I have not been very successful at creating a few new habits in regards to writing or posting. Whoops!

I have vague resolutions for this year, only because I know that they often get forgotten or just fail.

  1. Enjoy hiking the Grand Canyon
  2. Finish up my kitchen
  3. Take more photos
  4. Apply for a higher job position
  5. Get more kudos for my current position

There are others…but this is a good start.

I resolve

This year, I resolve to:

  • Go to Toronto and see the Cup and Niagara Falls (Already in the planning stages)
  • Go to New York and visit museums and see the Daily Show (already have ticket confirmation in hand!)
  • Go camping on the Boston Harbor Islands again on a new island
  • Participate in Light the Night in honor of my Dad hopefully with him healthy enough to join
  • Go back to full time and be able to think about buying a house
  • Possibly go to Washington DC with the Boy, who has never been
  • Explore Eastie more. Go to the Peruvian restaurant and check out a few more places in Maverick
  • Breathe.
