New Year’s Goals Suck

It’s almost two weeks into the new year and I’m already messing it up. How is that possible? Well, for me, keeping goals is extremely hard. Unless it’s for eating a whole pumpkin pie in a day. That is totally do-able but also something I’m trying to avoid.

My goals for this new year were…

  1. Lose Weight/ Eat Healthier
  2. Train My Puppers (She’s adorable but uncontrollable)
  3. Work on My Writing
  4. Read One Book Per Month (No, it has not been a whole month yet)

The biggest goal being losing weight because I need to lose about 60 pounds. Getting into shape has always been a struggle for me. I feel the ups and downs everyday. The hardest part has been to exercise more aggressively. When I say aggressively, I mean like AT ALL. It’s just not my thing. I find a way to avoid doing it every single day. Although, I do try to walk the dog every day at least and stretch a bit. So, that’s something right?

The other goals that have proven to be even more difficult are reading one book a month and work on my writing. Why? I can’t seem to figure out. Maybe it’s because it’s finally time for me to start my career as a writer that it feels like a weight. A giant weight. I’ve wanted to do this my whole life and now that I have the opportunity I feel stuck. I’ll go to work then do chores around the house so I can have time to sit and read/write but nothing. Even writing this post was a struggle. I want to do this.

And, maybe it is because I think I need to write in order to save myself from my day job. That I need to write because I need to make money. Because that is my career of choice. I don’t know.

But I do know that I want to write because I love to read. The stories I read as a child have given me the ability to write. I want to follow in their footsteps. I want to create amazing things because I know I can. So no matter what the reason for the writer’s block, I know that I need to push through these anxieties because I love to write.
