2020 Goals, Resolutions or Whatever You Want to Call Them

I am moving this post from its original blog to here, so I can easily see what I wanted to do this year quickly and easily.

Happy New Year to one and all. I hope 2020 is the best year yet for everyone. 

Yes, there will be highs and lows, challenges, and times to cherish, they are all part of life. As I get older, I find that what matters the most is how I react to and see situations, people, and events more than what is actually occurring.

A beautiful view to start the New Year

I hope that in 2020 we all stop and take a look at what we are seeing, doing, or what is being done to us from a different perspective, even if it is for a moment. Who knows we are not always as correct about things as we believe we are.

2020 Where Do I Go From Here

For the most part, I am happy with the direction my life is taking as I enter into my 63rd year on this little blue marble.

In the past, I have tried resolutions, specific goals and all the other falderal that goes along with saying that we are changing our lives to start a new year – none of them seem to fit the direction I am going in life now that I have retired.

Yeah, finally I am going to say it, I am retired.

I don’t plan on going back into the workforce and my job now is to work hard at being healthy, making my relationships with others better, and enjoying each day that I have left.

To be blunt, in 2020 I don’t want to change a lot. At this point in my life, it is more about tweaking a few things, than making huge changes. I will be focusing more on how to make 2020 a little better each day. Along with riding out the challenges that will come over the course of the coming year.

  • My goals, if you want to call them goals for 2020 are going to be simple this year:
    1. Enjoy the life that I have and continue to move forward from there.
    2. Smile and laugh more.
    3. Do more things that challenge me every day (physically and mentally).
    4. Run some miles faster, but run slower more often and focus on enjoying my running.
    5. Read more and not the same genres as usual.
    6. Write about what I want to write about.
    7. Remain frugal in most things.
    8. Be and stay humble.
    9. Think and look outside the box more often.
    10. Most of all be me.

No long-winded explanations of how I will accomplish them or what I mean by each one. Although I foresee writing something about each one as the year goes on. I am not going to measure so many things that it results in measuring the joy out of living.

Yeah, though I would like to step on the scale next January 1st and be under 155. hehehehe

Otherwise – I wish everyone a Happy New Year and may it be the best year of your lives so far.

What are your goals for 2020?
