What are your goals for 2017?

Here are a few goals that I want to work on in 2017: * I want to do more exercise and less sitting down. * I want to show more love, patience and tolerance towards everyone. * I want to keep my apartment neater. * I want to give away everything that I'm not using. * I want to spent less time on my computer. What about you? ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Here are a few motivating quotes that I like: “It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.” (Ursula K. Le Guin, The Left Hand of Darkness) “Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.” (Louisa May Alcott) “If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.” (Albert Einstein)

Interesting goals and easy to reach. Regarding the computer, I will be more time connected, as one of my goals is to work as a freelance online. To be my own job looking for my incomes on a way I like may be my biggest goal. It's important to take your own decision instead of depending of another person telling you what and how to do....

A good goal for me would be to practice slowing down in all things. I rush to get so much done, and all that rushing does make for more stress.

@1hopefulman Yes, patience is sorely needed by me. I do not wait well for things to happen or problems remedied.

@1hopefulman .. For starters, I will shun unhappiness and turn around to look for something positive in most situations. Every situation has some positives...

Although we do not do resolutions, your list is a great one for us to consider. We have been working on (for years) giving away any items that are here and not used. For sitting less, try a standing desk. We have one for our online work area, and it is great. Really should post a photo (think I will, just because of you!) for others to see.

This last week of December I will make myself 4 new resolutions, I have been doing this for years and I do monthly updates on how well or not I am doing. One will most certain be downsizing everything, even myself I need to spend more time on the computer because the more I am here the more money I make by just enjoying time with my online friends.

I have never heard of "dervish" and I found this definition of dervish: 1) a member of a Muslim religious order noted for devotional exercises (as bodily movements leading to a trance) 2) one that whirls or dances with or as if with the abandonment of a dervish
a member of a Muslim religious group that is known for its customs including a fast spinning dance that is done as part of worship See the full definition…

@1hopefulman yes - but I'm not Islamic - however - I do find the kinetic value of dance & mind important
