As some of you know my New Year plans were scuppered by a visit to Bronchitis Land. Being very ill for a 2 solid weeks was not the best start to a year. However, I tried to embrace the situation. Check out my post in case you missed it – Seeking new year inspiration while surviving acute bronchitis.
Anyway, I am now well into my recovery – hooray, hooray! I have started my new job, which is going well – hooray, hooray! So it’s time to get to grips with this whole New Year thing. Let’s get this show on the road.
So here’s some of my plans, goals, tasks (whatever you want to call them) for the year ahead.
Current Situation – I’ve been happily blogging away for a few months now. I’m enjoying the creative outlet and particularly enjoy communicating with other Bloggers, either on my own posts or reading other people’s posts. A huge thank you to everyone who takes the time to read, like and comment on my posts. I really do appreciate it.
Plans & Tasks – I think it’s time to refresh my ‘About’ page. I’m going to do some rejigging of my categories. I’m also thinking of creating some new themes and categories. More about this in future posts. I am currently doing the Colour My World Challenge. When this finishes, I will be looking for some new blog challenges.
Long term, my aim is just to keep my blog going. This will be enough of challenge now I have a new, very busy, demanding job. However, I am determined to keep it active because I enjoy it and it gives me something just for me outside of work. I would like to do Blogging 101. I did sign up for this before but it fell during a blogging break so I didn’t participate. Hopefully, I will be able to do this later in the year.
The Universe and Beyond
Plans & Tasks – I plan to do a post about each of these so watch this space.
Get back into running – this will take time following acute bronchitis but I am determined to get back into the running habit this year.
Keep up Mindful Yoga – this will be a challenge to get out of work on time to get to the weekly class but I’m determined.
Make self care and well-being my key priority – today, tomorrow and all the today’s and tomorrows after that (there’s a whole series of posts here). This is a good place to start – Is Energy Management the Key to Overcoming Exhaustion?
Read more – I really enjoy reading but it fell by the wayside a bit when I started my new blog. I enjoy reading fiction so I am challenging myself to read 2o fiction books this year. Some of which will be part of a reading challenge – I Spy Goodreads Reading Challenge 2016. I also want to get back to reading about health and well being themes. I’m aiming to blog about these, a bit like this one – The Reality Slap. Finding Fulfillment.
Well that’s enough to keep me busy for a while. Who knows what else 2016 will bring. Looking forward to a great year – here’s hoping.
So what do you think? Do you have any similar plans for 2016?
