I say this as someone who adores New Years' Resolutions with many over the years. And failed most of them. Maybe it's because I am indifferent to the 'New Year, New Me' policy that many see to take up this year. The belief that a new year will change you for an optimistically better year.
Good for them! Not for me.
But there are things we can do. Little things that can make the new year worthwhile. Here are 16 Things To Do in 2016!
1 | Travel to somewhere else. Rome, perhaps? Or that part of town you never visit.
2 | Listen to new music, whether it is the upcoming blue-haired singer or old jazz from the 30s.
3 | Make a friend. They don't have to become life-long friends, or even Facebook friends. Just friends to make that day.
4 | Finish a project you were suppose to finish in 2015. You know which one I'm talking about.
5 | Take a much-needed break.
6 | Stop having such unattainable fitness goals. Starting drinking more water and eating more fruits and veggies.
7 | Reduce time on social media. You don't need to update your life story on Twitter everyday.
8 | Take up a new hobby. Might I suggest knitting or starting a blog!
9 | Love yourself. Love yourself more than the world ever will.
10 | Enjoy things genuinely and love unconditionally.
11 | Take more risks with caution
12 | Stop hurting yourself for the sake of hating. It's not helping anyone.
13 | Remove drama, and people who seek drama.
14 | Start breathing when you're suffocating. Then you will know you're still alive.
15 | Accept apologies you may never receive. Forgiveness is a strength, often mistaken for weakness.
16 | Learn to say goodbye, and learn to let go.
Boy, this just got super emotional.
I deliberately left this post vague so you, and by extension me, can make what you will with it. Not everyone's resolutions are the same. But they are characteristics that tie them all together. Consider this a broad overview for 2016, than specific must-do's and have-to's.
So what will you do in 2016?
