Half of January has passed and nothing has changed. It’s the same old routine we’ve had last year. I guess old habits are hard to break.
Bad habits are like a comfortable bed. Easy to get into, but hard to get out of.
It’s been ever harder for me, since I really want and need a vacation. With 12 days of paid vacation left from last year, I was only able to get one day off. It’s just not possible for me or anyone else to get a vacation at the moment.
Who said January is considered a “dead” month in terms of work was clearly wrong.
That doesn’t mean, I don’t have anything better to do than complain about work. Nope, I like to complain about work when I am at work. It makes more sense that way. In a way, I want to break this bad habit that I have and stop complaining about things in general.
I also wanted to make this nice post about my goals and resolutions for 2016. But I never got the chance or I got stuck when it came to what I want. It feels rather weird since I have at least 10 things I want to do each year.
Then, I though about it more and I realized that what I want is not something big. My goals this year are so small and common that normal people would automatically do them without really thinking much of it. I know, it’s a habit of mine to compare ourselves with others.
I guess 2016 is not about big things, but rather the small ones in my case. It just hit me that we will be turning 29 this year. It will be our last year when we can see “When we were in our twenties..“. I know age is just a number but I feel so small when I look back on how I’ve spent the last couple of years.
It might be just me thinking that way..
Either way here is what I want from this, in very general terms:
No more Facebook.
Read 50 books.
Change/upgrade something/anything in the house.
Pay my debts.
Save some money.
Get my eyes checked.
Visit a dentist.
Have a staycasion.
Have a real vacation.
Learn new recipes.
Break my old habit of procrastination.
Then there would be even the smaller things, but they do come in the want rather than need section of life.
I hope I will be strong enough and I will not fall in the same old patterns, have the same old habits and just become better at being a grownup.
