Making up your new year’s resolutions is a great way to reflect on the previous year and think about what you want to improve upon this time around.
Our new year’s resolution is actually quite easy every year:
Do more of what makes you happy and do it right now!
People often say that they will get around to whatever it is they have been dreaming of at a later point in life, whatever that may be. But you never know what the future holds, so why would you postpone the things that would make you happy right here and now?
We both recently got our master’s degree. Naturally one would focus on building a career, such as starting with a PhD. However, we dream of traveling, and want to see more of the world.
Last summer we hence made the decision to work as hard as we possibly can to reach our goals. We bought a van and started converting it into our travel home on wheels, and the past three months have been extremely exciting.
2018 will be the year in which our dreams will be fulfilled. We’ll finish our campervan conversion and finally start our adventure around the world!
What makes you happy? Is it something simple, that doesn’t involve planning, or would you have to change your life in order to realize your dreams?
Whatever it may be, figure out a way to do more of it.
Happy new year!
