the plan | january

the only actually new thing i buy specially for the first of january is a new agenda. strangely it is the only thing i have that begins in january and ends in december, otherwise, you know me, i prefer the first day of school or work as the begginning of everything. it is then, mostly spetember that i make my resolutions and that i make plans for myself, by the time october comes, i am in full swing of new rituals, routines and schedules. november and december are easy breazy and usually january is for me the most boring month of the year, ok fabruary too... they go by as slow as a snail and the weather never helps, even those years in africa those two first months of the year seemed to be neverending, usually never very exciting... don't know why i just feel them like this. anyway... i do believe that resolutions are over rated though to-do-lists are indeed under-rated and we should have those constantly in our lives.
in a post back in september i told you about the general resolutions and those that come and go once they're done. those are my favorites, and the ones that take up less space in my head. deception is something i rather not have on myself... on anyone really, but i think it's harder to deal with if it's us.
so i have started a new to-do-list, hoping i can keep it for the whole year. by now, all bloggers and facebook pages have thought about which yearly project they'll take on board, and so have i, not the only one i'll do but this one is importante to me because it's what i do all year, every year, no matter what.
i'll now make a general to-do-list for the year 2014, with no strings attached, none of these items are life-threatening so please don't shoot me if i forget, or just plainly decided to not do them. i'll also write a post at the beggining of every month in order to align thoughts and tasks and not put so much preassure on me. of course theses are not in any particular order, they are things only, things i must remember are not the most important things in my life but things that could indeed make me happy, organized and relaxed, so here we go...
