Another trip around the sun

Another 365 days complete. The beginning of a new year, a new calendar, a new book with empty pages and it's up to us to fill them well. It's time to start again.

I know that many, many people are against new year's resolutions and I completely understand why. I look at it as a place to start. Everything has to start somewhere, it might as well be here and now. And I'm a lover of new beginnings. So let's use that to my advantage and start again on the first day of a new year.

So I am not so much starting as picking things up again. For the last 2 months at least, I have not been following AltShift well at all. There has been food outside of shift. A.  Lot. There has been food I shouldn't eat ever. A. Lot. There has been not enough steps during the break. The 2 things I have been doing really well is the meditation and the sleeping. I got those down. I am currently on a 66-day streak of meditation. And it's break, so I've been sleeping. I need to dial in the food and to get off my ass more. So that's where I'm going to focus my energy on starting today. Today starts 5 Shift, which is perfect, new year, new shift. So a focus on health this year. I also want to focus on Maverick. I need to get him his Intermediate Trick Dog and his CGC. I also want to get him to stop reacting to other dogs so violently. That I will need to work on. There is also finances. I am tired of living paycheck to paycheck, so I'm going to work very hard on breaking that cycle and that mindset. I have realized in the past that much of my problem with money is the way I think about it. So I'm working on doing better with it and changing how I think about it.  And then there is school. I have made huge strides this past semester to becoming the teacher I want to be and that will continue into the new semester. By the end of this school year, I want to have my systems nailed down and just work on refining them as I continue teaching.

So actually that's not too bad. I don't have any huge, monumental goals, I just want to keep on getting better and better. And I think that's a good goal anytime.
