My 12 Goals for 2016.

Have you ever felt lost? I’m sorry even I ROLLED my eyes at that question, OF COURSE. If you are in your twenties chances are that you’ve stayed up late on different nights trying to figure out and plan how your life should be going and how you get your life started. 

My best friend graduated from the Marines in early December. I’ve never been more proud of anyone in my entire life. She’s basically family to me - and my family. She also managed to some how get time off to be home for Christmas AND New Years. Christmas Eve she came over to my house and we were just discussing life and (honestly) discussing how everyone else our age was acting and how we felt out of place because we weren’t still into the “going out” scene anymore. I started discussing how well I was doing with getting my life on track and how I began to feel proud of myself, but then it just stopped. I told her how I stopped working out because of some unknown reason (no motivation?) , stopped reading as much, and stopped blogging. You know what she told me?

“Colleen you should get back into blogging, you were good at it. Your stuff is real and its from your heart and you put a lot of effort into it. It gave you something that you were proud of and honestly I really think it could take you somewhere."

Now there’s only a few people in my life who currently even know about my blog and even fewer who read it (boyfriend I’m calling you out right now). I’m okay with it really. I’m still a little embarrassed but my best friend is right. I need to get back to doing stuff for ME. I’m the only one who can change my situation. I’m the only one who can get myself to take steps to the goals that I have (side note: will still update you whenever I actually figure out what I want to do with my life) but I can’t keep sitting here expecting my situation to change if I don’t change it myself. With that said  and 2016 approaching, here are my 2016 New Years Resolutions:

  1. Run an average of 5 miles a week. (about 260 miles the whole year)
  2. Work out at least 3 times week. 
  3. ACTUALLY do something “travel” related every 6 weeks, even if it is exploring my own town. 
  4. Journal. 
  5. Blog.
  6. Take more photos. Learn how to really use camera.
  7. GoPro. 
  8. Chip away at the 101 in 1001 challenge.
  9. Read. (Novels, self-help, recipes JUST READ)
  10. Start a roth IRA. 
  11. Be on track to buy a house.
  12. Stop second-guessing on ever decision.
