This year is quickly coming to an end. Already it is December 30 and tomorrow if New Years Eve! Where did the time go? I wanted to share my 2017 Reading Resolutions.
I have to get this out of the way: the goodreads goal. Last year my goal was 52 books and I surpassed that by about 5-6. The tendency would be to increase my goal and push myself to read more. But I do not want to go crazy, so my goal is 60 books. I know, not a huge difference, but I want to keep it reasonable. I never want to feel like I have to read.
Read More Diverse Books
Researching diverse books is not as hard as I thought it would be. I have found many lists of different authors or setting to read. Now the hard part is reading them. I want to make a conscious effort to read and purchase diverse authors and books.
Balance my Blogging Life and Real Life Better
This is a really hard one, but I need to do it. I am a workaholic and so I need to set some real limits for myself. I want to be able to go outside, hang out with friends, see my family without feeling anxious all the time. So I am going to try to do yoga at least twice a week. I want to also try to meditate at least every day, even if it is just for a little bit of time. Keeping up with my resolution from last year, I want to maintain my gratitude journal. It has helped me look for the bright parts of my day and made me more positive, I think.
One more thing….
I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who reads these posts. You are all so precious to me because I love feeling a part of a community. It is like a big hug knowing you read my emails and posts. My blog would not be as successful without your support 🙂
