I can’t say it has ever been very much in my nature to start a year with a written list of goals or new years resolutions.
But I would often formulate some in my head. My mind is quite an organised place and I am known to have a reasonably good memory. Then, as the year progresses I may write one or two of the practical tasks down. Just to have the pleasure of crossing them through when complete.
However, often there are the goals you want to achieve that are more to do with thought processes and behaviour patterns. These type of things remain in my head and may be fleshed out in a post on my blog. Or by having a chat with those close to me. Of course completing such goals it is far more difficult as how can you know if you have or not?
These are the easiest as my real life job has come to an annoying halt. I loved my work too. It kept me healthy, mentally and physically. I do feel a little lost without it. So now I have time to blog to my heart’s content.
- Sex Matters ~ One of the first things I want to do is continue with For the Sins of Red. I put this series on the back burner while I was busy with other things but I get a constant amount of views and have left it too long already.
- Life Matters ~ It is on my goal list, in my head 😉 to return to my ad-hoc meme later this month with Money Matters. With the economy in a right ol state it seems a good time to address issues such as living on a budget, saving and such like.
- Blogable ~ I really want to write more posts for this shared project. We have realised that so many basic concepts to do with blogging and writing are not rally catered for else where and are determined to tackle this during the coming year. As well as launching a blogable project or two.
- 4thoughts meme ~ I love working with the new bloggers once a month. It is my goal to continue doing this over the year. If you know of an enthusiastic blogger – whose site is less than a year old – who may like to try their hand at hosting a meme for a fortnight and being interviewed as well, then please let me know their details. It is a great way to be promoted.
I suppose some could be called habits. I drink too much. But you know what? I do not intend to do anything about this. The world is fucked up at the moment and if I want a tipple I’ll have one.
Strange but True ~ sniffing knickers
I do have a very strange habit. Sniffing my knickers. The smell reassures me. It started when I was only 18 and went off to University to do a degree that I hated. I left at the end of the first term and returned to study a different subject, psychology, a few years later. I was a little out of sorts at this time and sometimes would sit in class and by opening my legs slightly I’d receive a whiff of my scent. This may seem very odd but it made me remember who I was and helped me through a dark winter. I continued to do this, or sniffing my knickers, when times were tough. So I have returned to this pastime now and then over the last year. And why not I say. It makes me feel better and causes no harm to anyone.
Adoption ~ The route of my disconnection?
On a more serious note during 2020 I did a lot of deep thinking and realised I have a very irritating tendency of disconnecting. I came to the conclusion the roots of this may be tangled up in the the infant connections, or lack of, from before I had my constant carer, my mum. I have decided to explore this theory in more depth this year. Goodness knows I have the time. And will see what I learn about these issues.
But on the whole this year, well, I am just taking it one day at a time. The present climate is all about surviving. It is a very difficult time to plan too much so I will look at each day as a fresh new start. I like that idea.
I hope 2021 evolves into more than just survival.
