New year! New set of goals! But not in January!

This Month's Goals
I Want to Read:

  • Whatever strikes my fancy

I Want to Write:

  • Anything I can

Are we starting the year off entirely free to do whatever it is that I feel like? Why, yes. Yes, we are! There’s a reason for this and you may have read about it already: I’m moving and starting a new job at the start of this year! :O So I don’t know how much time I’ll have and what, if anything, I can get done. The move involves some major changes and I really hope that it’ll work out the way that I’m, well, hoping.

And yes there is secrecy to this! As you have undoubtedly noticed if you’ve been around the blog or my twitter a while, I’m a pretty private person, so I’m not really keen on sharing a lot of details. But what I do know is that it’ll be a massive flurry of activity while I get settled and sort myself and the changes out into sense and order and I expect that I’ll be fairly busy and tired for much of this beginning of the year. (Anxiety brain has been having an absolute field day with this, which doesn’t really help.)

So, rather than trying to feel obligated to start the year off with a concrete set of goals, I’m just going to go for low-key no-pressure anything-is-good goals. If it’s anything like other years, this also means I’ll actually get a ton of stuff done and be off to a great start for the year, but I just really don’t want to pressure myself into feeling bad about finishing things that I’m not sure I’ll have the time or the ability to work on in this time.

At the moment, I’m not excited about these changes. I’m terrified. Excitement will come, don’t worry! But for now anxious brain is very anxious and seems mostly concerned about making me feel absolutely sick and making my body forget to breathe. o_O Like, how does your body forget to breathe? It’s usually the thing that tells you breathing is a good and useful activity and you should seriously consider doing it.

But, yes, mostly terrified. It’ll work out, I know. Brains, though. They like to come up with doomsday scenarios. Well, mine does anyway. Yours may work differently. ANYWAY, that’s why there’s no specific goals in January.
