It’s that time of year when we think about who we want to be and what we want for the upcoming year. My list for changes and wishes was a long one for 2019, but the more introspective I became, the clearer it became of what I really want to work towards.
- Make learning Spanish a priority. Living in Monterrey, it’s easy to get by on partial Spanish. In fact, it never really becomes an issue for me until a get together or party happens.
- Make friends. It’s not easy making new friends midlife. Then add living in a different country, not speaking the language, and being an introvert to the situation. Egads. This year I want to keep an open heart to meeting new people.
- Volunteer. Mexico is a great country to live in and it’s time I gave back, especially since there are so many opportunities to do so.
- Be a vegetarian. Im an on again/off again vegetarian. It’s time to make it permanent.
Other goals: Practice yoga; cook 1 new recipe per week; host a dinner party, go to an opera, work on my posture, travel.
