I like the number 3. It is one of my favs along with 2 and 5. I am finding it hard though to like the number combination of 2013. On the unexplainable side is why I don’t like it. I know it has the obvious “13”, but I don’t have beef with that number. Thirteen has not proven itself unlucky in my life. On the plus side, 2013 has a “2” and a “3”. Multiply those numbers to get 6. Which is the same number you get if you add 2+0+1+3. And without further ado, I’ll end my most neurotic post introduction by moving onto my 6 resolutions for 2013.
1. Read more.
I’ve already started doing this and I’m smitten. I was a readaholic as a child and apparently all it takes is just one book to get back into the habit.
Essentially what I mean by this is to take lots of pictures and write down lots of words. I’m hoping to kill two birds with one stone by blogging about my reading (as well as other things). I already have plans in place to use my phone during my commute to help with writing. Gotta love that text to speech.
3. Exercise more.
I don’t want to become old and immobile, so moving around now should help my healthy later. I am active, but I don’t have an exercise routine and I need to build cardio into my schedule.
Since resolutions 1 through 3 require me to do more, I need to do a little less somewhere else. So…
4. Watch less television.
I already watch little television, but it is my go to after a long day of work. I’m hoping to replace this habit with reading. Or exercising. Maybe a Pilates class is in order? I know I said cardio earlier, but relaxing exercise may be more realistic. Oh, and of course, writing/picture taking. The inspiration for this resolution stems from the following chart.
I don’t want my leisure time mostly spent on watching television. That thought depresses me immensely. Reading, writing, and moving around make me happy. Happiness is queen.
5. Spend less time on the internet.
What I largely mean by this is spend less passive time on the internet. No absent minded pinteresting or pogo-ing for this girl. No searching for one thing and not knowing how I got to an unrelated site two hours later. I am going to work on structuring my internet time for the purposes of creation, not consumption.
6. Dream bigger.
I am finding the older I get, the lamer my innermost dreams become. Travel the world somehow morphs into live in another state…temporarily. Really? I am going to let the dreamer inside me speak freely. And when she gets braver, maybe she’ll blog about it.
Here’s to 2013. Here’s to possibility…
