On the eve of 2012, I’m naturally looking back on the past year and looking forward to the next. (Truthfully, I’m frequently looking backwards while also looking forward. But today seems like a good time to write about it.)
I started 2011 with the intention of writing more and being more creative. I did that, but not to the extent that I originally wanted. But the year was sort of hijacked by a lot of residual anxiety and depression, as well as junk caused by anxiety and depression. I’ve learned a lot about myself and my habits because of this, and all in all, I’d say this year has been a very good one in terms of growth.
Going into 2012, I find myself making…well, not New Year’s resolutions so much a life resolutions for myself. I’m planning on exercising more, making changes to my diet to eat better overall, writing and creating more, getting more organized, getting my finances and spending under control and just generally taking more control of my life, my anxieties and my fears. I feel like I’ve spent a long time developing bad habits to work with my anxiety and depression, habits that have given me an excuse for being disorganized and unproductive. I’m tired of living that way. I’ve already started working on getting more organized, more productive, less timid and self-sabotaging, and 2012 will be the year I kick all of that into high gear. In many ways, I feel as if my life is just getting really good, I’m starting on all of the good stuff. Just in time for Timewave Zero!
Buckle up, friends! This is going to be an exciting ride!
