I’ve thought long and hard about all the things I want to do for the new year. What my resolutions will be. Whether it’s worth making any. Whether I’ll stick to them for longer than 12 hours before going back to the exact same person I always have been.
Which games I want to play and review. Whether I’ll actually get around to streaming or making videos again.
I’ve decided that the only way to do all of these things that I actually want to start doing is to consciously make an effort or schedule to do them as part of my routine. Fingers crossed we got this.
I’ve bought a ton of games in 2017 and I’ve only had a chance to play a fraction of them. So hopefully I’ll have a ton of content to post for the new year!
Not only that I’m working on a schedule to start streaming again. I’ve had a few people ask me if I stream and why I’ve stopped. To be honest, it was time where I could have spent elsewhere. I loved doing it, it was super fun. But I’m an incredibly shy person and sometimes that caught up with me when I would stream. However, I am planning to start again even if it’s just once every now and then to have some fun!
I’ve seen a lot of posts on social media about people who are going to lose weight or work out or cut off people they don’t want in their live anymore and be more brutal about who they let into their lives.
My resolution is more simple than that.
I want to give back. I want to donate to charity whether it’s a bag of clothes or money in a pot. I want to give away my things to people who need it more than I do. Help others without them asking, even if it’s just holding the door for them. Or taking my coffee mug back to the counter of the cafe so it’s easier for them than walking all the way over to my table and back.
There’s so much selfishness around resolutions and people care too much about themselves now that easy to forget that other people matter to. I felt myself becoming less giving and less considerate towards the end of 2017 and I hated that. I’m so excited to get grounded again and do things for other people.
