The New Year Project: This Time Next Year

Hi! I hope you guys had a good weekend. Please excuse me for the very short post, I've been out of town for work for the weekend, and going practically cross-eyed from being on day 8 of my working week. Four more days to go. I've got this! I think...

This time next year, I want to look back and be proud that I:

* have gotten more self-confident.
* finally sat down and wrote a novel.
* got to know myself a little better.
* am more comfortable to think/say nice things about myself.
* procrastinate less.
* have achieved either my goal of halving my wardrobe or my library, or both.
* crossed off at least 40 things from my 101 in 1001 list.
* I've either lost 10kgs or have gone down 2 dress sizes.

By this time next year, what do you want to look back on and be proud of?

p.s. I owe quite a few of you emails, replies and visits. I promise I'll get around to it within the next couple of days.

take care,

    I cannot wait to read your novel! :) good luck!

  2. There is a website where you can write a letter to your future self and have it be emailed to you by a certain date. You should try that. I have done it and its interesting to see if pop up and think back about what you wrote.

    Good luck in making your goals this year. I'm going to be simple and say "accomplished a lot of things from my 101 in 1001".

  4. I think I've heard about that one before! Thanks for letting me know. :) I went a little old school and placed the letter in an envelope, and wrote a note at the end of my diary for this year to make a note on my next diary about the letter, and so on until I reach 2023. >_<

  5. Haha fair enough! :) Good luck with yours too! How are you going so far?

  6. 12 work days in a row? That's insane,Toni! Take care of yourself! :O)

    Thanks. So far so good. I have managed to cross a few things off and made progress on quite a few others. :)

    PS I just watched this video that reminded me of your post on 'where are you from'. Thought you might like it:

  8. I know right! Ah well it wasn't so bad over the weekend, the boss took us out of town for some training and a waterfall cruise. But I definitely can't wait for the weekend! Thanks LuAnn :D
