Little changes add up to big ones

Standard

New YearA bad habit I’m going to break: Holding in my emotions until I pop. I would like to work on dealing with little problems before they turn into big ones. Be more open about when things are bothering me.

A new skill I would like to learn: I want to continue learning more about photography, posing and editing. I have come a long way in the last couple years, but there is still so far to go. Eventually it would be nice to be able to make a living off it again.

A person I hope to be more like: Pollyanna! I need to learn to appreciate the small things in life more. To view the class as half-full rather than half-empty.

A good deed I am going to do: I would like to do good deeds whenever possible. Little random acts of kindness can make a huge difference in the day, or lives of other people. If we all tried to do one random act of kindness a week, I think the world would be a much better place.

A place I’d like to visit: I would love to go back to New York City. I haven’t been in over a decade. I could never imagine myself living there, but with the hustle and bustle, the lights and sounds, it is a great place to visit. I really want to visit the Ground Zero Memorials. I think it is a place every American should visit at least once in their lives.

A book I’d like to read: The Bible. I have read bits and pieces of it and have several times started to read it cover to cover, but have never managed to do it.

A letter I’m going to write: I write letter all the time, to all sorts of people for lots of different occasions. I never mail them though. Maybe I should.

A new food I’d like to try: Sushi, the raw kind, not the cooked kind.

I’m going to do better at: Not emotionally eating, sticking to my weight loss and exercise plans.

I’d love to hear your responses. Here’s to a great 2014!
