Resolutions. Goals. Diets. Etc, etc, etc.
Each year I find myself having one, or wanting to do one. I’m pretty sure a majority of everyone wants to do one. With the lure of social media (I’m looking at you Pinterest!), it’s easy to want to belong to that collective.
Do I have goals? Of course I do. Do I have resolutions? Sure. Do I want to go on a diet? Absolutely. But I won’t tell myself, “This year, we’re doing ________.” More than anything, I’d rather tell myself, “Just be a better you.”
Isn’t that enough?
For me, it’s just easier to eventually come up with excuses. (Motherhood has the perfect scapegoat.) I think the best thing for me is to just take things one step at a time. To just attempt to mimic all the good things that I did the day before.
Actually, one of the two things that I will commit to becoming more involved mom for O and S. Especially since O is getting older, and education is beginning to take a front seat, I want to be hands-on. The other thing is to take more time for myself. I have found that being a wife, mom, daughter, friend, employee… it’s easy to say yes. It turns out that I will tell myself “later” so I can tell whomever “yes” now. I know it won’t be an easy commitment, but I hope to just actively be aware of what’s going on.
Isn’t that enough, 2015?
