A lot of us are focused on our first week of New Year’s resolutions. The thing we often forget while working for goals is that we must live at the moment. Take advantage of the new day! Tomorrow’s worry is for tomorrow.
Goals must be taken in steps. One of my main goals to lose weight for surgery can’t be done by rushing. Worrying about tomorrow won’t get me done with today. Today I must make sure I eat right and exercise. Each new day is a blank slate to work on our goals. Embrace that new day!

Every year I write a piece on my resolutions. Normally I would write them and keep it private but this year to help me hold to becoming a better, healthier me. I will list 10 goals I will go for this year.
1. Lose 75. This involves becoming very stringent in what I eat. Not allowing junk food, soda, or other forms of sugar in the home. I also will increase exercising.
2. Start rock climbing again. I won’t let pain prevent me from my dreams I am going to one day climb mountains.
3. I will get back on Testosterone and raise money for surgery. My goal is at least 1000 this year. This means updating my GoFundMe once a week.
4. I will post a non-surgery related post once a week on the blog. I cannot guarantee daily posts but will do my best to try.
5. I will master at least one new language. I have already started doing this using Duolingo.
6. Up my GPA and do my research project. I was extremely nervous about doing my graduation project but I will have to suck it up.
7. Become strong enough to not need my cane. I started walking with a cane during periods of intense pain in 2010. I will figure out what’s causing my pain and find a way to not rely as much on the cane.
8.I will republish my novel and start my second one. I will stop re-editing the first one after I finish this.
9. Finish projects I have started.
10. Beat Skyrim. Seriously, like the complete game not just the main quest.
Every year on the 15th of December my father, a short man, would go out and pick a live tree that often was 2 feet taller than he was. He would proudly haul this tree up four flights of stairs and into the apartment. The pine smelt amazing, and you could tell our father worked hard to pick the best tree.
My favourite tree was the one he hauled up those stairs, got it to the door, and in the house only to stand it up and it didn’t fit. We had to trim the top it was so tall. While I have never purchased a live tree, I cherished those memories and know Christmas is a time of celebration. Happy Yule, Merry Christmas, and a Cheerful Holiday to all my readers this year!
