Happy new year!
2013 was not my best year, it’s been years sense I spent so much time in my shell. Yes I am more out of shape than ever, I do not have a steady income, and I haven’t had a girlfriend in longer than a year. I was doing more passing of time than using time.
While I won’t say these are my new year resolutions (They kinda are) I present to you,
Toby Sterling’s changes for the new year.
1. Take better care of my body.
I drank too much, exercised too little, and ate like I did when I lived in a dorm. So I will change these things. I just got back from weighing myself on my 10 year old scale (by saying that I attempt to convince myself that the scale is off) and it read 240 lbs. More than I weighed when I was a cab driver. I need to head the other direction.
2. Write more.
I attempted and failed at NaNoWriMo this year, but in the process i rediscovered my love of fiction writing. I will attempt to finish the story I started writing then that has been in my head for years.
3. Be more social.
I tend to be content to stay home and fill time. But it can also lead to getting into a rut. Getting out and being with friends is good for my mental health and need to do it more.
If I can do these things I will be in a much better place overall. My anthem for this (For now) is “Feeling Good” Michael Buble
“It’s a new dawn. It’s a new day. It’s a life for me, and I’m feeling good.”
