I’ve been thinking a lot over the past few weeks, mostly about what new endeavours I want to embark upon this year. Lately, I have been mentally stuck in a rut – I had become so lazy that I would spend weekend after weekend just watching TV or playing World of Warcraft. Look, I think this is fine to do, just not every weekend. I guess it all came down to finishing the work week, completely exhausted and not wanting to think about how to improve because that’s what I have to do every day at work. But then, the weekend would end and I felt like I achieved nothing, because honestly, I didn’t (other than getting some new gear for my Fury Warrior – which is an achievement in itself since we don’t currently do any Normal/Heroic/Mythic raids so I’ve pretty much capped my ilvl – but that feeling of achievement only lasted for about thirty minutes).
But I want this year to be different. I’ve paid off my loan after five long years, I’ve started this blog and I’ve booked my first holiday in five years. This year, I want to grow – in my career and just generally as a person. I’ve been thinking of starting a small business (even though I know absolutely nothing about it) and I’ve also been thinking of how I can grow my personal brand creatively (i.e. smartly, on a budget). Last year was really learning how to be patient – if you know me, you know I am probably the most impatient person you’ve ever met – that needs to change.
No matter what I do, though, I want to make sure that I keep my integrity. I am all about being natural, healthy and happy – although I may not live these things every day, I will sure as hell try.
What new things do you have in store for yourself this year?
