Instead of a normal blog post, I thought I'd shake things up and open the discussion up to my readers. If you're a regular commenter, you know that I value your comments and opinions and I'd love to hear you chime in. If you've been a lurker all this time and have yet to comment, please take the plunge with this post! You can use the name/URL option and just leave your name if you don't have a website, or you can comment anonymously, but in any case I'd be delighted to hear from you.
So, topic for today: New Year's resolutions and 2009 goals. As May winds down and we head towards the latter half of 2009, think long and hard about what you set out to do in January. Do you still remember your initial goals? How much progress have you made? What were your successes and challenges? Have your goals changed or have you uncovered new ones you want to carry through with you for the rest of 2009?
I'll start things off by discussing how much progress I've made with the goals I mentioned in this post:
- Pursue more opportunities with blogging and writing: Since the beginning of the year I've consistently blogged here and on Stylefinds, networked in the Vancouver fashion industry, attended events and provided coverage. Recently I also became a contributor to Vancouver Fashion Ezine. It's quite a bit, but I also wonder if I'm capable of more before 2009 comes to an end.
- Travel to at least one new place: Ah this goal I haven't fulfilled yet, but gleeful plans are already percolating in my head for a getaway in autumn to coincide with my champagne birthday.
- Go salsa dancing 1-2 times a week: I'm pleased that I've more or less kept this up, and nowadays I find that if I don't go dancing regularly I'm bursting at the seams and tapping my feet and bopping my head at my desk. I'm considering stepping this up to 2-3 times a week--for this summer, at least.
- Incorporate more fruit into my diet: I actually did it!! I went from 0-2 servings of fruit a day to somewhere around 3-5. This is a huge improvement and I actually feel less sluggish as a result of eating better.
Ooh, your turn now! Let's hear it.
