To start off this list, I want to look at it from a physical stand point to make me feel healthier.
I want to cut back on sweets and fried food more and start eating healthier greens. I had a salad tonight for the first time in FOREVER and it was delicious! I forgot how good chicken caesar salads were and the one that I had from Bread Co. was super good! Sure, I'm going to miss desserts, but I'll still treat myself from time to time, because come on, no one can truly cut sweets out of their life.
I think I'm a very active person already, but I feel like I could definitely do more as an athlete. I want to run more often, and maybe keep an exercise log in my bullet journal, so I can keep track of each mile I've run, every sit up, each push up, etc. I feel like this would make me not only a better athlete, but more organized of what I do each day.
Not only do I want to change things in my life from a physical stand point, I want to change things from my mental and emotional stand point as well.
This year, I also want to make new friends. I have never really gone out of my comfort zone and talked to new people, and I want to change that this year. Meeting new people is something that I really love to do if I'm being honest, but sometimes it's difficult to do so because I overthink the situations too much. For example, if I want to hang out with someone, I don't really want to ask because what if the feeling isn't mutual and they don't want to hang out with me? That's something that is always in the back of my mind, so I never really go out of the way to make too many plans myself. I know, I know, you're probably thinking "Sarah, it's not that difficult, just make plans!", and that's what I'm wanting to change.
Social media is a huge part in everyone's lives nowadays. It's everywhere you go. It's all in this little box we carry around no matter where we go. In my opinion, I feel like social media is ruining our generation in a way. It's shortening our attention span from the real world. It's a HUGE distraction. Don't get me wrong, I'm guilty of being someone who constantly gets distracted from the consistent buzzing from my phone. That's the thing I would love to change. I want to put my phone down more often and spend more time with family and friends. I need to go outdoors to exercise, like I mentioned earlier. There is an endless possibility of things that a person can do when they put the phone down. I want to be more aware of the possibilities in 2019 and live in the moment.
The last thing that I want to do this year is to keep everyone in mind. What I mean by that is, you never really know someone's situation. No matter if it's their home life, something that's going on with friends, a recent loss of someone of importance in their live, just anything, I want to keep that in the back of my mind when I choose to talk. You never know when a person is going through a rough time, so I want to be kind to everyone around me, no matter what mood I may be in. I want to be considerate of others and think about what I say and how I act.
I know that this was a long post, but if you truly stuck with it to get down to this sentence, then I thank you so much for reading this!! I hope 2019 brings you a great deal of happiness and memories that will last a lifetime!
See ya later alligator ;)
