Most years, when I’m on the cusp of a birthday, I have all sorts of goals and ideas swirling around my head for the next year. Read more books, try a new kind of exercise, plan a trip, you get the idea. This year it’s just….blank. It’s not that I don’t have exciting things happening. Namely, I will finish my Nutrition Consultant program this year (that’s big!). But I made that goal years ago, so it’s not a new one.
This year, though, I’m struggling with getting pumped about any new plans. I’m trying to cut myself some slack, because for the past couple of months I’ve been dealing with a recurrence of mono. Yuck. I’ve been tired, lethargic, and it has been pretty hard to follow through on things that require my brain (i.e.: school work). Maybe when I’m back to feeling 100% the ideas and excitement will flow.
In the meantime, I’ve turned to some of my friends to ask them for ideas. My friends KK and KC think I should launch a new business after I finish school. My friend Ali thinks I should shoot for running a 10k. More than a few friends have encouraged me to run for office (I need to grow a thicker skin before that is even an option).
So, readers, tell me: what goals do you set each year? What fun or challenging things are you planning on tackling soon? Leave me your thoughts in the comments and maybe we will all get inspired!
