Happy New Year, folx! It is the first full week of 2021 and I am already banging out my resolutions.
My resolutions are the following:
- Walk/run 2,000+ steps every morning (9,000 steps each morning by the end of 2021)
- Turn The April Diaries into a community
- Drink more tea
- Eat organically
- Eat more superfoods
- Get a new job
- Read more books and magazines (I kind of slacked in 2020 😂)
- Drink less alcohol
- Be more open about my spirituality
- Support others.
Those are the big ten thus far. There’s no doubt that list will grow. There’s also no attempt at perfection, but every improvement counts. Stepping stones, guys, stepping stones. Another thing I’d like to do is have more people to interview on this blog. So if you or anyone you know would like to be featured, let me know in the Contact page.
The thing about resolutions is that they are easy to make and harder to create habits to form them. But at the same time, it’s easier to create bad habits. Why is it harder to create good habits? Perhaps it’s not in our nature to have them. Perhaps, as humans, we are destined for imperfection. And perhaps we simply don’t know exactly what it is we really want to attain. Some want to attain that “hot body,” that new career, while others, like myself, or maybe those same people, a degree. And trust me when I say that those “what does your future look like?” quizzes on Facebook are nowhere near real.
I encourage you, however, not to take quizzes that supposedly “determine” your future but to create your own. I love a good challenge, do you? Some call it creating, others call it manifesting. I’ve been trying to be more transparent about my spirituality, recently, and I’ve gotten a lot of support, so thank you for that! (for those of you who reached out!)
Making the most out of a situation is good, too. Despite what’s going on in the USA right now in terms of the upcoming inauguration, our current president, and the horrible domestic terrorist attack on the Nation’s Capitol Building. But I remain hopeful in Biden’s upcoming presidency. I also sincerely hope that my D.C. followers are safe.
Last thing, I did get another job, a second job, if you will. It’s at an Animal Hospital. More details to come later.
xoxoxo April ❤
