15 New Year’s Resolutions for Every Adventurer
New Year, New Resolutions, New Mountain.
Now that we’ve rung in the New Year, it’s time to get to work on our New Years resolutions. There’s no time to waste, because it’s 2018! Things are going to be DIFFERENT this year! You have the power to make 2018 the best year it can possibly be.
Feeling like you don’t have any resolutions?
Are you thinking about doing something new, fresh and exciting? Thinking about going on a crazy hike? Maybe you feel like you’re stuck in a rut and don’t know how to get out. Let’s be honest, we have all fallen off the horse before.
But now, look no further, friend! Here’s some inspiration from my and my friend’s recent Appalachian Trail hike that is bound to inspire a fire of newness and hope inside you. Repeat after me:
“This year I resolve to…
- Never leave any leftovers.
- Stay positive, and never be discouraged.
- Really put myself out there.
- Go on a diet.
- Be a little more spiritual.
- Cliiiiiimb eeeeevery mountain!
- Finally get a tattoo.
- Stay to watch the sun set.
- Always ride in style.
- Wake up for the sunrise.
- Conquer my fear of heights.
- Be more inclusive.
- Go down Knife Edge in Baxter State Park.
- Learn to play an instrument.
But out of all the things you could do to better yourself, there’s one that is the most important.
15. Keep moving forward, and never give up.”
No matter what gale force winds may come at you, how much your knees hurt, how little money you have, the amount of rain that may be pouring from the heavens –
No matter what you may say to yourself to convince yourself to turn back,
Don’t. Don’t ever give up on this dream you’ve concocted. Finish what you started. You are never alone. And you are a goddamn force of nature, and nothing can stop you now.
Happy New Year, and as always,
