I am NOT on the non-plan plan…

I get all dorkily excited about new things.
New Years are no exception.
And I’ve not been to New York yet, so I’m not sure,
But I’d probably get excited about that too, even though it’s kind of a pun.
The point is,
I like having a fresh start for the new year.
I like having goals.
I never really stick to my goals,
I always think,
“This could be it!
This could be the year I follow through!”
So I’m working on the things for which I’ll set myself up for disappointment (OR NOT!)
Only THIS year, I’m going to put it up here for all to see.
Yep, I’m baring my resolutions to the world.
That way, it will be much more embarrassing if I neglect it.

So January 1st, 2013,
I will post my list and start working on being a better version of myself.

What are your ‘resolutions’ or goals or what have you?
Let’s get some feedback here.
I need inspiration.

I was talking to my father-in-law not too long ago,
And he was reminiscing about the days he used to windsurf on the mighty Mississippi.
Apparently a lot of people used to be out there,
Peppering the waters with their colourful gear.
It got me thinking:
I may not be the most coordinated person in the world,
But I’m also no Bella Swan.
So I think I could learn.
Doesn’t this look SO fun?

(just to be clear, this is NOT a picture of the Mississippi. We don’t have mountains in the mid-west, last time I checked, although it WOULD be nice.)

The ocean would be fun to try too, someday. IF I got the hang of it.

And that is that.

It’s crazy that simplifying your life can actually be so incredibly complicated. But. I know there are a few things that I want out of life, and to reach those goals, I am probably going to have to give others up. Just thinking about it both excites and scares me. It’s something I need to will myself to do though, because I would like to become more of a finisher and less of a procrastinator. I want to be that person that says something and follows through with it. So I must simplify. What’s that phrase? Too many irons in the fire? Or something like that. I don’t really get it. But here’s my first one, I guess. I’m going to get rid of everything I don’t wear. I always do this, but this time more extreme. This will create more space in my closet and allow me to think better. Besides, we always re wear our favourites over and over and only wear the spares in a pinch, right? I’d rather have some basic essentials to mix and match than a closet full of random clothes I barely wear. Ok. Also going to bed earlier. 🙂 this will in turn help me to get more things accomplished! So good-night!
