Winding down

December 9, 2016

Thanksgiving has come and gone, which means we’re now officially in the midst of the Holiday Season.

The weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day are fairly introspective for me. I start thinking about the goals I set for myself throughout the year, influential life events, heck, even movies I wanted to see.

I won’t lie; my 2016 held a lot of crap. It started off wonderfully, but, once late Summer hit, it crashed and burned. Here are a few highlights:

  • Coaster Thingy 2016 (visits to Six Flags Magic Mountain, Knott’s Berry Farm, Las Vegas, and Angel Stadium)
  • My first cruise
  • Cruising through my first hurricane
  • A month-long breakup after planning an engagement
  • Dad visiting for a week
  • I lost 27 pounds
  • Another one of my closest friends moved away
  • Trump… ugh…
  • I discovered intermittent fasting and the low carb/high fat lifestyle
  • I seriously upped my Snapchat game

I have no idea what 2017 has in store for me, but I have a few ideas:

  • A new job
  • A new home away from Minnesota
  • The likely death of my beloved silver toaster (Scion xB)
  • The likely purchase of a car that can actually hit 70 mph!
  • More writing
  • More blogs
  • More music

I don’t want to be held back by the roller coaster of 2016. I want to start fresh and take control of a year that will witness a vast improvement in my health, happiness, and, I hope, spiritual depth.

What steps are you taking to start the year off well? What were the highlights of your 2016? What butts (read: goals) are you going to kick in 2017?
