I’m not really good at the “Resolutions” thing. Not that I have anything against them, I just usually forget to make them, and then if I do make a resolution, I will forget what it was and just do whatever.
So this year, maybe I’ll work on “Intentions” for 2018.
Things I need to do this year. Things I want to do. Things I hope for.
First off, considering my current situation: Get a job. I’ve never been out of work since I began working, and I can’t handle it. I don’t know how people survive, not having some job to go do every day. If I had a home job, and was making some money from it, I could be fine. So, shame on me for not getting something started up before I separated from my job.
Second, start up something at home. Become my own boss, doing something I enjoy, and have a passion for. This is something I think a lot of people want, and is why Gary Vee has become so popular right now.
Third, be more sociable, and maybe get into a relationship. I’ve been in Michigan for four years, and despite several attempts, no relationship. Not even dates. This place has been not good for me, even though I have enjoyed my time here. I’ve ended up with one friend, too. Several people I thought were friends, until suddenly we don’t work together anymore, and I never hear from them, and they don’t usually respond to me if I reach out to them. It sucks that people are like that, but what can you do, other than try to be a good person.
Fourth, travel more. I’ve become sedentary here, as the airport in Grand Rapids is freaking terrible. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a decent little airport, but is woefully undersized for the size city it’s in, and you can’t really get flights when and where you want them, and when you do, it’s REALLY expensive. So, access to a better airport is needed.
Fifth, try some different things. From different ways to save money, to maybe new foods, to new places to go, to new creative situations…the point is to grow. Meet different people, do different things with my time. Let’s try and shake up this life, and see if I can make it better. I don’t think I can make it much worse.
I think I’ll stop there. Five things to accomplish in 2018. Maybe if I post this here, I won’t forget it, and will work on these things. I’ll see at the end of the year if I can get there.
What are you hoping for this year?
