I'm not usually into the idea of New Year === fresh start. Its just an arbitrary date in the cosmic scheme of things. However, this year feels necessarily different.

2018 was a tough one for me. There are some particular reasons for that and some less easy to put my finger on. Regardless, I am pretty pleased 2018 ended when it did (and good riddance).

I feel like 2019 will be a more positive year. I don't do resolutions as that’s an unnecessary pressure to put on yourself. That said, there are definitely things I want to do differently this year. I want to affect my year as much as I can by changing a few habits of my own. To help me I've decided to publish an unordered lists of those things.

  • Be. More. Positive
  • See more live art and comedy
  • Go on more dates with SH
  • Be more understanding of things that irritate me (that includes myself)
  • Exercise more
  • Eat better and drink better
  • Wear shirts
  • Read more
  • Write more
  • Draw
  • Be interested
  • Focus on things that are in my ability to change or affect
  • Worry less about things that I have no control over
  • Chew gum
  • Meditate if/when I feel like
  • Play more
  • Get regular haircuts

Hopefully next year’s list will be shorter.
