So, honestly, I have not been doing all that well with my progress - or so it would seem by my chart outline.
I guess at the beginning of the year, when hopes are high and goals are set in multitudes, it is easy to "fail." This is why I set so few.
My real resolution is "be productive." I am actually wanting to RESOLVE something - the rest are purely goals.
In terms of my static goals for the year, writing is the number one. And even though I have not been writing my allotted "1-2 hours a day!", I have been making progress, steadily.
Why would I be disappointed in myself? It's the same with any big goal - you generally have to start small. To expect yourself to go from nothing, to hardcore, is silly. Sometimes these kinds of changes do happen, but I find they are the result of something extreme, and not just a decision spurred on by a date change.
For instance, when I changed my diet from junk-food vegetarian to raw vegan, it was certainly not overnight, and it was because I was in an extreme state - one that needed a harsh change.
So, I have been writing the book that has been swimming in my brain for 10 years. I don't have a ton written yet - only about 10 pages. But that's more than I've written of it in 10 years. If I keep doing little by little, it will get completed!
In the meantime, I still journal every day. I have been reading the first of my self-appointed "textbooks."
I am more active, too, and before it got really cold, I was walking steep hills in the very early morning with my dog.
I have barely tried to meditate. I still have not started a yoga practice, but want to. I have been having a green juice almost every day.
So things will become more of a habit once I integrate them more, over time. I am pretty happy with my story so far. It's funny how stories shape themselves - things happen that you never anticipated, even though you are the one writing the story. Weird.
