I have never kept a resolution in my life, and I'm okay with that. That said, I'm thinking of 2019 along the lines of goals rather than resolutions. There are things I want to do and things I need to do that will help me be a happier and healthier person. So, Goals!

1. Write regularly, as opposed to in fits and spirts. Try not to focus solely on how slow a writer I am and come to grips with the fact I cannot write as fast as other writers. Comparisionitis will only frustrate me.

2. Deal with why I procrastinate whether it's procrastinating on writing or other elements of my life. Identify, the reasons behind my procrastination and get into new habits of non-procrastination.

3. Address my chronic pain issues to the best of my ability and make strides to be healthier. I found out recently I have double knee replacements in my not too distant future. How can I hold off on surgery? Should I hold off on surgery? I have some big decisions to make and I need to determine how I can be functional this year and in the future.

4. Stop dreaming and get doing. It's all on me to do what I need to do, to be who I want to be, and to make changes for the better.

5. Allow myself to occasionally fail without recriminations. Get back up, dust myself off and try again.

Goals are good and focusing on them rather than allowing distractions, whether real or imagined, will help me in the short and long-term.
