Ok, Lets Talk

First, let me apologize for going M.I.A for the past two months. I could tell you the various reasons I did, but that's not too important other than to say that I was overwhelmed in general and couldn't give the blog the time it needed. I thought no one would notice my absence from the blogging world, but thanks to a little pep talk from a reader I didn't know I had (thank you Lauren Ross) I feel like I am ready to get back at it.

The next order of business is to say Happy 2014! I like to take the first week or so of the year to figure out my goals and resolutions for the year. Like many bloggers out there I came up with a huge list of things I would like to improve, change, or do in the new year. I haven't felt especially motivated, but maybe the blog will be just the right tool to help me stay focused and accountable for what I want to achieve. So today I wanted to share some things I have on my 2014 agenda, and I would love to hear some of your goals and resolutions too!

Work on my posture! This is no joke. I am legitimately worried of becoming a hunchback due to my desk job and am seriously considering one of these.

Pick up a creative hobby/ do more DIYs and craft projects like this one. I would really like to learn how to sew and I'd also like to try my hand at calligraphy (I'm thinking of getting one of these fun kits to try it out).

I want to get healthy. Yes this is repetative. Yes everyone wants this too. But I am at the point where I need to do it. I'm not happy about the way I look in pictures and I think it would do be a world of good to get some confidence back. I'd like to get back into a routine of working out, eating right, and cooking at home.

Be a better friend. I want to spend more time working on the friendships I have and making those last. We all get caught up, but a few minutes can most definitely be found to reconnect. I'd also like to make new friends, but that proves to be challenging the older I get.

What are your hopes for the new year?
