My birthday is at the end of the year, so rather than make resolutions I make goals per year of life. Realistically it’s the same dang thing, but somehow it makes more sense to me.
One thing I have never done is create a theme for the year. I want this to be a year of making. I want to reduce debt and build savings, but I also want to learn to knit, sew curtains, make shelves, have a banner year in the garden, learn how to use the inevitable surplus of eggs (even though I don’t actually like eggs that much,) get good at making pies, maybe take a pottery class, take my lunch more often, preserve the harvest, etc..
Make more, consume less.
I can’t wait for it to officially begin.
