I spend a lot of time thinking about writing goals, but I very rarely consider making personal ones. So today, I’m going to think about what I’d like to change in my personal life. They won’t be huge, because I quite like my life the way it is, so I’m not looking to make any major changes. Instead, I shall come up with five smallish things I’d like to achieve. So here goes…
1. I occasionally go running. I’m not very good, but I enjoy it. The problem is, I live on a mountain and I’m crap at running uphill. My favorite route has this one long uphill stretch. At the moment I have to stop twice to recuperate. So I’d like to improve my fitness levels so I can run all the way!
2. Train Grunt. Grunt is my BAD dog. I love him dearly, but he’s bred for hunting and he likes chasing anything that moves, cars, bicycles, goats… So this year, we’re going to do some serious training. I want him to be able to sit at the end of the drive while the shepherd goes past and not spontaneously combust.
3. Get a sun tan. Frivolous, I know, but last year, for most of the summer, I wasn’t allowed near the pool and was banned from sunbathing. So this year I plan to take in a few rays, preferably while floating on the pool, reading a book, and drinking a frothy cocktail!
5. And finally, try not to fret about things I can’t change.
So do you have any personal goals this year?
