I am guilty sometimes of getting too comfortable and not taking chances or trying new things. Being content and doing the same things the same way, over and over, can lead to a stale and boring life. Who wants to live that way? There is so much on this world to be experienced and hopefully little by little I will be able to experience more of it. I have made it a goal this year to step out of the comfort box more and try new things and visit some old friends. I guess this is 11 days late, but this is of sort my 2009 New Years Resolution. I have a few things I wish to do this year and hopefully I am able to accomplish them.
One thing I have always had an interest in is writing and being creative. There is some creative writing in my family. My I have seen a lot of my sister’s poems in the past, and my grandfather was an Editor and writer for a newspaper in New Jersey for years. So one new thing this year is to try blogging. There is no rules to it that I know of. I can write about my day, share my opinions, share stories, or really write about anything I really could ever want to.
Another thing I hope to do this year is travel more. I have promised for awhile to visit some friends around the country. So hopefully I will be making some appearance. If all goes well I will get back out to California and Colorado, and get down to Texas as well. Friends spread out all over making places more desirable to visit, as there always is a couch to crash on. The improvement in communication (email, texting, cell phones, etc.) has made it easier to remain in touch with friends, now I have to get it moving to get out and see them.
Finally, I need to find new ways to be more active. I would like to find something to volunteer with over the summer, or possibly sooner. Not sure yet what I intend to do, but hopefully it will be something that makes an impact. For years I spent hours a day playing music, but my music career has been pushed aside by an office job. With that change, I hope to get back into more sports leagues and show the world the athlete I am. So far I have joined a volleyball team (I have a lot of improvements to make).
There are plenty of other things I want to do in my life, but this is a simple, general list that I have put before me that I hope will help me improve my quality of life. These items are not at all difficult to accomplish and I did not intend to create such a list. Earlier I wrote about the Power of Self-Awesomeness and trying to think positively. Another great way to think more positively is to improve on the quality of life. Hopefully this year is a great year and brings many great new things.
