So I decided to take a little vacation from doing anything productive. It has been nice. I wrote lots of blog posts in my head, and then never published them. I have had lots of fun reading everyone else's posts though. There have been some great linky parties, so I am going to do a little catch up.
Okay, I want to link up with two linky parties about resolutions. I always have lots of personal goals.
Personal Resolution and Downtime
My primary personal resolution for this year is to keep working toward balance. That was my goal for 2012. I did much better the first half than the second half. I actually started blogging in Feb. 2012 as part of that effort.
Balance for me is about making choices that are healthy for me. I am a very serious individual and tend to be overwhelmed and get tension headaches. I love yoga. I find it healthy and a good release of tension. I would like to consistently do yoga 3-4 hours a week. Eventually, I would like to even do training as a yoga instructor to make a more lasting commitment to make yoga part of my life.
I really want to start a personal blog to track more of my personal journey toward balance. (It even has a cute name. I just haven't done anything with it yet. It will be called "Balancing the Backpack.") I would like to use this blog to track my progress toward making more consistently healthy choices and even track more of my gratitude. I started my gratitude list in 2012 after reading 1000 Gifts. I stopped doing it in the second half of 2012 and would like to pick it back up.
I also want to plan a trip to Hawaii for our 10 year wedding anniversary. Jan. 2, 2013 is our 9 year anniversary.
I think I just want to be more consistent and take better pictures. I have a nice camera. I just don't really know how to use it. I would like to take some photography classes to get a little more familiar with lighting and composition, besides just learning the camera itself better.
Maybe this would help me?
I would love to more consistently post and comment. I do consistently read other blogs.
