I don’t know why, but it seems like everyone had a fairly crappy 2009. Mine wasn’t what I would call an epic fail, but it wasn’t the easiest year I’ve ever had, either. Lots of stress, lots of worry, and lots of time spent obsessing over things that were beyond my control.
I’m not really one for resolutions, but I do like the idea of the clean slate each new year gives us. It almost feels like a chance for a do-over. So, I’m excited to see what 2010 brings.
I’ve got a few things I’d like to do this year. The first is that I’ve joined a YA Lit Reading Challenge for 2010. There were three levels to choose from, so I chose to go for reading 25 YA lit books this year. I think it’s do-able. I’ve already got two under my belt so far, so I need to get cracking on posting my reviews in the next couple of days.
Secondly, I’d like to just take better care of myself. I’m not making any hard and fast weight loss, nutrition, or fitness resolutions, but the recent spate of sickness I’ve gone through has pretty much kicked my butt and let me know that my bad habits are catching up to me.
The final thing I’d like to do this year is to actually learn to let go and stop obsessing over inconsequential things. I blame my inner control freak for my inability to do this with any measured success in the past. However, it’s time I learned to focus on what is important, and let God handle the rest. And He will.
So, welcome, 2010. I hope I like you better than I liked your older brother, 2009.
Oh, and where’s my jet pack?
