I gave up making New Year’s resolutions a long time ago. Maybe because I never kept them any better than the resolutions I made at any other time of year. I also don’t stay up until midnight anymore. The arrival of the New Year finds its way without my shouts of “Happy New Year,” and when I wake in the morning it will still be January 1.
But I have an ongoing list of ways I try to improve that I keep in mind throughout the whole year:
Be kind, as much as I can, to both people I know and the strangers I don’t know.
Move around more and eat better.
Socialize more. Because I’m an introvert, my first inclination is to stay home, content in my own world with just my dogs and husband for company.
Revise and polish some of the rough drafts of stories and essays that I’ve written.
Remember that it’s okay to make time to do the things that I want to do.
The New Year gives us a chance to reflect and start again, to make resolutions and become better people. But any other day of the year can be a good day to reflect and start again, to make resolutions. So, Happy New Year throughout 2023, for today and any other day that you may need it the most.
I don’t know yet. I want to follow this bloganuary challenge. Be a better person. Do things I like to do and be with peole I like to be. If I spend he 1st day of the year lying in bed, reading crime sories and eating pizza, does it mean the whole year will be like that? I do not mind the lying and reading part but eating pizza, moreover, eating it in bed, is exceptional for today.
ufff.. this is definitely a hard one. SO, so many things came to find as I read the question. Blog more, help others, read more from diverse authors, turn a hobby into an online business, I want to do it all! Usually, I dabble here and I dabble there and I talk about what I “would” do, but I admit, I am missing the follow through. So, what do I want to achieve this year, Action. Taking action.
Picking one or two of my many ideas and putting it into action and maintaining consistency in doing it so it becomes a habit. Simple. Right?
Good luck to all others and Happy New Year!
Well my daily Bloganuary posts won’t usually be on target topically because (1) I plan my daily posts ahead of time and (2) I post daily about 15 minutes after this prompt came out. Anyway if I were in Fiji it would be January 2 already.
So basically in order for Bloganuary prompts to have a chance of being useful for those of us who plan ahead, they’d need to come out the day before.
But I did post today. And “things I want to keep working on in 2023” was topically relevant, by chance, because it’s Jan 1.
My post for today’s prompt:
Breaking Down Achievement
This year, I hope to acquire new tech skills and build something beautiful. There are several things I would like to learn, and I choose to focus and enjoy my learning journey. Here we go, God and I!
I’m soo ready for 2023!
Happy New to everyone. It’s great to be in here and to connect with many of you. Here’s my thought following the prompt that we’ve been given. I will be checking on others to read theirs as well. https://acookingpotandtwistedtales.com/2023/01/01/this-year-i-want-to-achieve/
Excited to be taking part in bloganuary. Would love the prompts at least a day in advance as others have said.
Here’s my first post: https://iseultmurphy.com/2023/01/01/you-dont-scare-me-2023/
I am grateful to be starting this at the beginning of the month, instead of discovering it toward the end of the month, like I did last year! So glad to get to know you all through your posts! Please check out my Blog! I’m terribly proud of it! Love and light in 2023!
Here we go. How sneaky of the new year to start on the weekend – way to make me instantly more productive off the hop. Day one of both bloganuary and 2023 – so far, so good.
Actually posted my first post of the year ! Excited to continue with this challenge ! http://beyourownsunshinee.ca/2023/01/01/kicking-off-the-new-year-with-the-bloganuary-challenge-%e2%9d%a4%ef%b8%8f/
Happy New Year and all the best for 2023 everyone!
Here is the link to my post on today’s prompt.
It’s SO great to see so many posts already! Happy Bloganuary, everyone!
I’m excited for this year’s Bloganuary challenge!
Here’s a link to my post for today: https://bebravetraveler.com/2023/01/01/bloganuary-day-1-what-is-something-you-want-to-achieve-this-year/
Glad to be here from the start this year.
Here’s my post
If you’re curious, Here’s 10 out of 100 things I want to realistically achieve this year🔥🔥. There’s a little thought for everyone 💓🥺
I seem to have missed this prompt altogether. However, I did write about “How are you brave?” which is the prompt I received by email!
Hi everyone! It’s been great reading your responses!
Here is my blog post about what I want to achieve this year in relation to my travel blog: http://www.castlephiletravels.com/what-2023-will-bring/
I hope sustainability, awareness, and lack of fear would be some of the bigger achievements for this year: https://forestwoodfolkart.wordpress.com/2023/01/02/what-do-you-want-to-achieve-in-2023/
Strangely enough for most of my long career I never set “achievement goals”. I often had them imposed on me at work or by clients, but never in my private life. Behaviour goals were always more important to me and my family than outcome goals and I’ve written on todays post how I did it with lots of examples. Hope it helps.
It’s already a challenge to participate, what with today already being January 2 in Australia and camping in an area with sporadic internet connection, but here goes my response to the first prompt … 2023 – Explore the Possibilities
Hello everyone, what is something that you want to achieve, you can read this content to support your list. https://nabilapar.wordpress.com/2023/01/02/take-your-time-to-this-year/
I might be a little too late for this, but it’s an honor if you want to read mine! https://amarediaries.wordpress.com/2023/01/05/bloganuary-what-is-something-you-want-to-achieve-this-year/
Para el 2023 podrán encontrar en los buscadores de internet un nuevo medio de comunicación sobre noticias de Suiza, que esperamos sirva a cualquier persona hispanohablante con intereses sobre el país helvético para informarse sobre las últimas noticias. La dirección web es: https://noticiassuiza.ch/
What do I hope to achieve? Learn a new skill.
So, I am trying my hand (or pen, finger on keyboard) at poetry.
I hope it will get me out of this writing block. Because this year, 2023, will be the year I finish writing my memoir of family and stories that shape who we become.
