There are two kinds of people in this world: Pro-resolution and Anti-resolution. To be honest, I couldn’t care less what category you fall into. All I know is that I am pro-resolution. Here is the list of my 2012 resolutions (and 2011 resolutions if you’re interested). Like I mentioned before, 2012 was a tough year for me. Let’s look at how I did overall…
#1 Travel more often – Check
2012 was year of traveling for me. I worked as a training consultant for a few months, which in simple terms means traveling four days a week for work. However, I don’t count that as traveling really. Traveling has a lot deeper meaning for me. But hey, my trip to Spain counts… Yes it does. Along with other trips within the country (e.g. San Francisco, cross country drive from Oklahoma to New York, New Orleans etc).
BONUS: My all new and improved travel blog is alive!
#2 Learn a new skill – In progress
Do conversational skills count? Estoy aprendiendo a hablar español. And I still need to work a lot on this!
#3 Make a difference in someone’s life – Check
Raised money for CRY-America on my birthday. Like a bawz! Insert ultra cool smiley here.
#4 Spend more time with Mother Nature – In progress
I don’t know what to say about this one. I try, but I could try harder.
#5 Try vegetarianism for one month – Check
#6 Meditate (more) – Check
I planned on getting Ekam. But guess what, I got Kriya and Fourth initiation as well. Yes that’s how awesome I am! Thank you. 🙂
#7 Read more often – Check
Finished reading twenty books in 2012! Feel free to browse through my reading list on Good Reads (on the right) if you’d like.
#8 Create an inspirational thinking space – In progress
There shall be a whole separate post about the challenges I am facing with this one.
#9 Start living a healthier and happier life – Check
I don’t think anyone can ever check this off of their list. Cz no matter how much I do to be healthier and happier, there is always going to be more potential 🙂 I marked checked it because I am definitely healthier and way happier than I was in 2011+early 2012.
#10 Do something impossible – Check
I think this was not a SMART goal to be put on my resolution list. But if I had to pick one thing that was uber-difficult for me to change, it’d be to quit impulse spending in the name of luxury. I think I did pretty good on this one actually. I became a minimalist. Although I still need to perfect the skill. It’s a process. A really long one.
So looks like I did great! Ima try not to break my arm patting my own back.
How was 2012 for you? What are your goals for 2013?
P.S. Next post will be a brand new list of resolutions for 2013. Yes.
