I'm an utter failure (but I'm okay with it): How my resolutions for the year flopped BIG TIME
It's 2020. Are we even surprised that I only managed to complete ONE of the goals I set for the year??
Y'all might remember my post from January, New Years Resolutions 2020. I started the year off so hopeful 😥
Of course, everyone knows what a garbage fire the year turned out to be. Things went to crap REAL fast, just after we'd all been happily watching Henry Cavill slay in Netflix's The Witcher.
A global pandemic, superstorms, civil unrest, election year... really, there is something for every single month that kind of blew up in our face.
Worth the watch, I promise 😂
As much as I want to blame my failure at keeping my resolutions on 2020, though, I can't. I mean, sure, some of them were probably due to stress from everything else going on. But, really, I think most of the fault lies on my shoulders.
Here's a quick recap of what I wanted to do this year:
1. Watch less television
2. Read 15 books
3. Go on 52 hikes
4. Get a passport
5. Learn 10 ukulele songs
Did I watch less television? Absolutely not. Go on 52 hikes? Haha. Lockdown shot that one in the face! Get a passport? Not yet, unfortunately. Learn 10 ukulele songs? I still know exactly one 😂 That means....
I met my goal to read 15 books! In fact, I have passed it by four so far, with a hopeful three more joining my read list by the end of the year. It's not surprising to me at all that I managed to read a ton during a year where everyone was begging me to stay home and not spread the plague.
While I didn't meet most of my goals, I'm okay with it. I know who I am, and I know what I did get done instead of those things. I'm happy with how my year has turned out, everything else aside. And, while I know that everything isn't going to magically switch to amazing once the year is over, I am hopeful that 2021 will be better for everyone.
And I'm really digging the year recaps that people have been making on YouTube 😂😂😂
Here's to a better year in 2021! Stay safe, stay healthy, and don't beat yourself up too much if you're as big a failure as I am in the resolution department 😉
