Here is my ambitious list:

1: I will not let despair win.
2: I will find a "project" for each night after work, even if it is mundane stuff I have to do anyway.
3: I will try to get back in touch with people I know, even if it's just by liking their FB pictures.
4: I will try to be the best I can at work.
5: I will work out a bit, every day, even if I feel that the world is ending, and I want to go to sleep.
6: I will try to learn how to do DIY home-improvement, starting by painting the long-planned work room.
7: I will not let despair win.
8: I will eat lots of fruit and vegetables.
9: I will quit drinking sodas and energy drinks on weekdays.
10: I will go into town every Friday after work, for old times' sake.
11: I will not sleep longer than 9 on days off, unless I has a sick.
12: I will not stay up longer than to 1am, if I have the next day off.
13: I will try to catch up on Game of Thrones, so I know what people are talking about.
14: I will apply for all the "dream jobs" I find listed, even if I have zero chance at getting them.
15: I will actually start an organized attempt at getting my novel series down on "paper."
16: I will not let despair win.

Yay you! Sounds like stuff that will help you feel better about yourself, which will help your general outlook.

Funny, I was just looking at my Things to Accomplish list that I wrote in September (in my offline journal). When I wrote it, it seemed lofty and ambitious, but I've started on it and am making progress, and now it doesn't seem so intimidating. I hope I can keep it up, and I hope you can get started on yours and find encouragement in it.

I hope following this list will make me feel better, because right now I feel the same mixture of sadness and fear I often feel at the beginning of a new year. There are so many things I miss so dearly, that I don't know how to replace with anything. I hope things will get better this year.

Yeah, I still fear the new year, but for the first time in forever I have some hope, too. At least for now. *knocks on wood* *am kind of superstitious*

Maybe the problem is not so much that you don't know how to replace the things you miss, but that you don't have anything to replace them with? Maybe this year you'll find stuff. :)

I hope so. If I'm lucky, I should be a car-owner soonish, and everyone tells me I will "feel so much freer" when I can "go wherever I want." Too bad the gas prices are going to make driving prohibitively expensive. x(

Think of your goals as a quest. You may get sidetracked on the way to Mordor and end up near Isengard, but you're still on the quest. :)

And don't beat yourself up if you miss a goal once in a while (like on a Friday you don't get out). Just try again next time.

The sleep one is such a biggie for me - I just can't allow myself to stay up super late or sleep in, because it messes me up so bad. A sleep schedule is a Good Thing.

I don't know if you make to-do lists every day? I find it helps me, but it's not for everyone.

This sounds like a positive list! I'm rooting for you!

Thank you! :) I'll let this be my Plan, and try to believe in it. I have a few slightly loftier goals, but they're more secret for now. ;)

The Friday town visits is basically just to relearn going out with no specific plan. It was something I did with my Mom when I was younger. The main goal was getting some groceries for the weekend, but we usually peeked around in other shops for an hour or so, before getting to the business. Sometimes we'd pop by the video rental, and pick out a movie to watch. Awww, the good old days before Netflix. <3 The plan for this Friday is just to see if I can meet up with an old colleague for a cup of coffee, that we've been talking about having since this time last year!

This is a good list and I really wish you can keep up with it! I'll definitely have to take " I will not let despair win" to my list too! It's so easy to fall into the depths of melancholy and not see the positive things around you. I actually feel quite hopeful towards the new year. Even the world is so messed up right now I really hope we could find peace and understanding towards eachother, even that sounds so naive.

For a long time I had this love-hate relationship with GoT but I started to like it more and more maybe after 4th season? I'm sure you'll enjoy watching the latest season!

May this year be good to all of us!
