Screen Shot 2014-01-01 at 10.01.38 AMWe’re not even a week into 2014, which means now is the perfect time to brag about how well your New Year’s resolutions are going! You can say that you’ve exercised everyday this year or you’ve written in your journal everyday this year or you haven’t Facebook stalked your ex all year. All true statements too and you should applaud yourself for these micro-moments of achievement.

I don’t do New Year’s resolutions per se, but I have started off this 2014 by continuing and starting some useful habits. I’ve kept up with my Morning Pages (shout out to The Artist’s Way) and I’ve gotten better with staying on top of my inbox, so that it doesn’t reach monstrous proportions.

What have you done (or not done) that has made you proud of yourself so far this year? Also, don’t fret if you’ve already tripped up on some of your resolutions.  This upcoming week is the first Monday of 2014, so that’s kind of like a fresh start.

    Well, I think I’ve started off to a good start. I finally made the decision of changing my career goal. Hopefully, I’ll start school in February. While in school I hope to work a part time job or two ( a lot of money is better than a little), this month I hope to start my training for volunteer work on the weekends. Another goal is to reduce my coffee intake. Lastly, I do plan to shut off all devices at 9pm. I have more but, those should come with time. I don’t want to overwhelm myself.

  • I’m off to a great start. I broke up with the guy I had been dating for the last 3 months on New Year’s Eve. I knew he was not going to be my future husband and I did not trust him. I figured there was no good reason to waist my time or his if we weren’t going to last long term.

    My resolution is to not be such a crazy driver. No more tailgating people, cutting them off when they won’t let merge onto the freeway, etc. I feel like I’m on the right path. I’ve come to the conclusion that a lot of people are oblivious when they’re in their car and I don’t need to risk my life or there’s trying to get from point A to point B two seconds faster.
