Onward to 2015

Well I don’t believe in resolutions because my past history indicates that resolutions that I set never stay. I prefer to call resolutions goals. It’s a set closer in saying that I will consciously make an effort to get something done. I am proud that I at least made some changes and had new experiences in 2014. So here are my goals that I want to set for 2015. Some are short term and others are long term.

             Goals for 2015

  1. Read 52 Books— I am probably going to try using Goodreads and LibraryThing as guides. Any other suggestions are helpful knitters. I got a Kindle for Christmas so reading will be much easier with my daily commute to work.
  2. Take the Yoga 30 Day Challenge— a colleague of mine showed me this interesting Yoga Challenge. Also last night on the radio I heard that practicing yoga contributes to lower heart disease and normalizing blood pressure.
  3. Knitting— I will continue with the 12in2015 Knitting Challenge to complete at least 12 projects. My focus will be completing 3 WIP from 2012-2014. My new knitting hopes are to make at least 2 pairs of socks and a cabling project. I think it’s time to stretch my knitting skills to include handmade socks. Cables are said to be rewarding. I’m all about learning new knitting skills. There is never such a thing as too many cables.

  4. Expand music choices— I think the older I get, the more relaxed and settled in my preferences. In some things this is okay, but using Spotify (a music streaming program) has helped introduce me to other musical genres. I’ve recently discovered Ed Sherran who reminds me of Tracy Chapman. I am trying to get more comfortable with Jazz and Blue in 2015.
  5. Genealogy— I want to continue my genealogy research for relatives on my paternal side. I am not close to my father’s family, but hope to re-connect to a couple of people. I want to get pictures of my grandmother whom I share a namesake with. I’ve had fun getting to know relatives from my mother’s family. I have a cousin who is a genealogy expert.
  6. Attend a National Library Conference— I am trying my best to save monies to go to the National Conference for African American Librarians. I had a wonderful time in 2013 and met so many wonderful librarians.

Knitting buddies, what’s on your list???

    I love your plans for 2015 but I especially love the quote in the image. Comparison is indeed the thief of joy! Hope 2015’s all that you wish for and more.
