I Don't "Do" New Years Resolutions

Like everything else in my life, this post is going up late. Things have been a little crazy here lately, with moving back into the sorority house, a crazy love life situation, and going back to school (and getting an internship). So I've neglected this little blog here of mine. I'm back, though maybe not in full action. So without further ado, today's post!
But really...I don't make New Years resolutions anymore because I don't really keep them. Instead of making resolutions, I'm making goals for myself. Three goals that I've been thinking about, that will help me in becoming a better person. 

1. Make time to run every other day. 
2. Go to church every Sunday, no exceptions. 
3. Work on being a happier person. 

Now, you might be thinking, oh those are some easy peasy goals...Well, they are. That's why I set them. They're easy goals, but they're something I need to work on. The past couple years have been a little bit of a struggle for me. There have been insanely happy times, and awful bad times as well. As I struggled through the past years, I've realized (slowly but surely)  that I've become off track in a lot of aspects of my life. 

I started running after my last serious boyfriend broke up with me. I was angry, upset, and hurt, and I needed something to take my mind off things. As I started running, I began to fall in love with it. I ran every other day for four and a half months. I ran two half marathons, and then got injured. After having chronic shin splits while running & even when I'm not running, I had to stop. I was on crutches for about five or six weeks, then I went to Italy. I refused to bring crutches to Italy, so I chanced it. When I got back, I broke my foot. Seriously. I let it heal, at the end of August I was given the OK to start running again. I had lost my ambition, my love for running. This year, I'm trying to find my groove again. Well see how it goes, but I'm hoping that it comes back quickly. 

The second goal is one that I've been looking at for about a year now. I was raised (kind of) strict Roman Catholic. Mass was on Sundays with the family, and then school mass was on Wednesdays. This meant going to mass twice a week for about 17 years of my life. After I got confirmed, I stopped going to mass as much, and then when I graduated high school, I stopped going all together. Faith is a very tricky thing for me, and I'm currently working on finding mine (again). This means going to Church on Sundays, regardless of what I'm doing. I got really good at making any and every excuse of why I couldn't go, but this time I'm not. 

The final thing is kind of self explanatory. I want to work on being happier, and positive. I've surrounded myself by people who are unhappy and forever-complaining for awhile now, and I'm trying to fix it. I want to be happier & more upbeat. This means working on who I am as a person, what I like, and what makes me happy. I'm going to try and do things that push me out of my comfort zone, like going to the movie or shopping by myself. 

Bring it on 2014, I'm ready for you!
