I’ve never really been a “New Years Resolutions” type of person – it’s not that I don’t set goals for myself, but January 1 seems like too much of an arbitrary time to decide to do something! But what I do like about New Years (other than celebrating with friends and family, of course) is reflecting on the end of one year and the start of the next.
I’m looking forward to 2018 – I’m getting closer to finishing my master’s program, I’m making plans to continue working on Accessible YOUniverse, and I’m continuing to blog, too! It seems like 2018 has the potential to be an exciting year for me. I don’t want to get ahead of myself, though – I want to make sure that I take things as they come! Some of the most exciting things that happened to me in 2017 – like taking part in the Health Activist fellowship – were things that didn’t know about for too long in advance, and just happened upon!
But I’m definitely more of a planner than someone who just lets things happen. So maybe 2018 can be about balance, for me – about finding the happy medium between making plans, but leaving room for letting things happen! That’s as close to making a resolution as I’m going to get.
