2020 New Year’s Resolutions – Or Not!?

The last New Year’s resolution I made was back in the late 1980’s.

It was the only resolution I ever kept and my resolution was to never make another New Year’s resolution!

I don’t make official resolutions but I do narrow down what I want to focus on in the upcoming year.

Focus #1 – Health

My Multiple Chemical Sensitivities was the main reason I chose to live a nomadic lifestyle. Living in my van out in the clean, fresh air improved my health more than I ever expected!

But, for the time being, I’m living in a house – caring for my Dad.

Living in a house has had it’s health challenges. Some of those challenges (not all) are my own fault and it’s up to me to change the things I can.

Health is important and I need to put more focus on maintaining optimal health. Period.

Focus #2 – Increase Earnings 

In my post How I Earn Money On The Road I talked about several things I’ve tried (and failed at) and several things I’m currently working on (with some success).  It’s time to hone in, hunker down and work on increasing my earnings so I can live more comfortably and, when the time comes, get back out there and check more things off my Bucket List.   

Summing It Up

I don’t like long lists of things to do…. it’s too overwhelming and no one needs that!

Instead, I pick a couple primary things to focus my efforts on so that I still have time for the activities of daily life.

Focusing on my health and earnings are essential to my livelihood and the reward will be worth the effort.

Have you taken time to ponder what you’ll focus on in 2020? 

Have a Safe and Happy New Year!

  1. Quite list but all good goals. I took care of my, dad, for a while and wouldn't trade that time for anything in the world. It wasn't always easy but still worth it to me.My plans for this year is to get out of Tucson for the summer like I used to. Of course things have changed a lot since I last left out of here. I only have a mid sized truck with a larger camper shell but not large enough to really be able to spend much time in. I want to look into small piece of property in the White Mountains and possibly put a small she shed on it to carry me through bad weather, a place to stand up to get dressed and be comfortable I don't need much. Happy New Year Connie!
