Starting the New Year Off Right: A Look at My Goals for 2023

Every year 1234, I like to take a moment to reflect on the past year and set some goals for the year ahead. This year is no different, and I have a few things I’d like to focus on in the coming months.

First and foremost, I want to continue expressing gratitude for the important things in my life, including my family, health, happiness, friends, and work. While last year had its ups and downs, I am grateful for the support I received during the tough times and the opportunity to share the good times with loved ones.

In terms of specific goals, I’d like to work on making minor decisions with less hesitation and finding ways to enjoy life a bit more. I tend to prioritize long-term gratification, but I’d like to break that habit and find more joy in the present.

But above all, my top priority for 2023 is finding a balance between my family 👨‍👩‍👦, my work 👨‍💻, and getting enough rest 😴.

In terms of recommendations, I recently discovered the work of Michael Connelly and have been thoroughly enjoying both the books and the series. If you’re looking for a new material to try out, I highly recommend giving him a chance. As for games, I haven’t come across any particularly new or interesting ones recently, so I’ve been sticking to my tried-and-true favorites. If anyone has any recommendations, I’d love to hear them.

Cheers and a happy new year!
