Happy New Year Swim Along Blog readers! Fun fact… New Years is my favorite holiday! I love feeling people’s excitement and joy for new beginnings and new goals, I love reflecting on the previous year with gratitude, and I love making resolutions for the year to come. I make New Years resolutions every year, although I prefer to call them “New Years Goals”. I usually write mine down and put them on my bathroom mirror, to remind myself everyday of the things I want to accomplish in the next 12 months. Some of them are small and easy, others are more difficult and a bit scary. But if I’ve learned anything these past couple of years, it’s to not be afraid of set big goals. With hard work, dedication, and grit, you will find that you can accomplish many things.
Here are a few of my 2016 New Years Goals:
Read a new book every month.
Make nutrition and healthy eating a top priority.
Make the 2016 US Olympic Team.
Spend less time on my phone.
Volunteer my time more often.
Find something to be grateful for everyday, write it down.
Do things the right way, even if it is the hard way.
