But read it anyway…
Here it is, the 2nd day of the year already (or at least it was when I started this blog post, knowing me, it’ll probably be the 3rd or the 5th before I finish this, but I am), and I’m doing my 1st blog of 2018. Wasn’t really sure what to blog about, but I’ll make it up as I go. The daily post “word of the day” is Reservation, so let’s use it to get my 2018 blogging feet wet.
I’m not going to use this blog to talk about “resolutions”, as I don’t actually make those, I try to set goals or add to my “bucket list” of new things to do. 2017 was a VERY good year, interestingly so. I lived a LOT, and out loud. I didn’t let anything stop me from doing so. I took not only my first cruise in 2017, but I went on 2. One of which was to Cuba. I literally went from not having been any further than LA. in the past 10 years, to going all the way to Cuba. My 1st passport stamp since I was 11 years old. I cruised to the Bahamas as well.
When the year started, I was still in an “on again, off again” relationship (wait…it was more of a “situationship”) that I’d been on again and off again for the past 2.5 almost 3 years. We reached a climax mid-year, and called it off again, but around September, it seemed things were looking up, we were ALMOST there, but it crashed on December 30th, which was completely fine, because I’d already said that I wasn’t bringing the uncertainty of it into 2018 with me, I mean “almost doesn’t count”…right? So it ended, I know, I know, we’re just 2 or however many days it takes me to write this, into the New Year, who knows? I say no, I’m forgoing dating in 2018, so many other things I want to focus my time and energy on. Dating, love, “relationships” or the uncertainty of them all take too much energy.
Anywho, here we are in another year. I have so many things I want to accomplish. I did go 365 days without eating meat and have decided to take it a step further and go totally vegan. I’m excited about learning new recipes, cooking more, seeing even more changes in my skin as well as how my body changes. I plan to start taking yoga, I’ve already begun meditating at home, but I want to join a yoga class. I have a friend who keeps trying to get me to come out and cycle with him on the Beltline here in Ga. When it warms up a little, I definitely plan to. One of the local radio personalities here reached out to me towards the end of last year and talked about me coming on her show a few days out of the week. Fingers still crossed and looking forward to doing that. People say you shouldn’t talk about or tell people your plans before they happen. I am a firm believer in “what is for me, is for me”. So if it’s meant to be, it will. I definitely want to go zip lining this year. I’ve been wanting to do that forever. I already have my 1st trip planned (which is a cruise) at the beginning of February. This time we are sailing to Cozumel. YES!!!!! I’m typing this on the 4th…smh, which means I’ve been Vegan 4 days, and it’s not as bad as I’d thought it’d be. I’m never really hungry and I get full super fast. I do find myself cooking at home more, which is healthier, and financially better as well.
Update on the radio personality contact, I’ll be doing my first segment in the next few days. It’s a spin-off of my “Talk To Me Tuesday” posts I do on FB every week, usually a question that someone has either inboxed me that they’d like me to put out, or something interesting I ran across on the internet. I’m EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!
So to make a long story longer and get this blog out. 2017 was completely AMAZING and I have no reservations about 2018 being BETTER!!!! I’m going to post this one and get started another because I’m behind for my 2018 goals about posting.
