New Year’s resolutions don’t last very long for most people, but we’re su-purr serious about these ones!
I’m not in the habit of making New Year’s resolutions, and neither are my siblings. It seems like it’s an exercise in futility. You make resolutions, follow them for about a week (a month if you’re lucky), and then you forget all about them. Not this time! Here are our top five New Year’s resolutions that we promise to follow.
#1 – Be More Social
I’ve let The Meow Place’s Instagram page sort of fall to the wayside. It didn’t seem to generate much traffic to this site, so I thought, “What’s the point?”. After some careful mind-brewing, I realize that what’s most important to me are the relationships I form on there, not page views! Expect more regular posting in the New Year.

#2 – Blog More Often
This is a tough one because I agonize over every blog post. If it’s not perfect, I procrastinate until the topic becomes irrelevant. That’s definitely what happened to our Christmas gift list post for 2017. Another factor has been the holiday season and missing my dad. Christmas is tough when you’ve lost a parent. I’m resolving to not be such a perfectionist and give myself some slack in order to blog more effectively and frequently!
#3 – Be Active
If you don’t take care of yourself, you can’t take care of others (including your cats!). I’m a very skinny thing, so I’ve never felt a pressing urge to exercise or stay physically active for my health. Boy, was I wrong! I’ll be 30 years old this summer, and since I can feel my bones start to creak a bit (okay, not creak), I’m getting into a regular exercise routine.
#4 – Speak Up
There are causes about which I am infinitely passionate, but my anxiety sometimes silences me. Actually, it often does. This coming year, I’m going to make it my mission to use my voice on issues I’m concerned about in the animal community. It’s time to come out of my shell!
#5 – Be More Personal
Instead of hiding my face away on my bio page that no one ever visits, I’m revamping the blog with a new look – a more personal one. I sometimes come off as business-like rather than an actual human being, and I want to change that. My readers should know who I am, and that includes knowing my face. Ugh, if only I weren’t camera-shy.
