(a year of unknown adventure!)
3 days into it. How's it going? Have you broken any resolutions? Did you even make any?
Wanna know what my resolutions for 2013 are? Of course you do. :P
1. Be healthier.
This doesn't mean that I'm gonna go all crazy about weighing, measuring, calorie counting, etc.
I simply want to go to bed earlier, eat more fresh and homemade food, and make a habit out getting in some form of daily exercise.
2. I want to be more accepting of myself and those I love. I tend to cut friends some slack but I hold myself and the ones closest to me up to some seriously high standards! I think that expecting the best isn't bad, but being unrealistic, judgmental, and ugly when I fall short of the goal or when loved ones let me down just isn't healthy.
3. I want to take every single class that BYU offers in their online independent studies series. I should probably make this a goal to extend over 2013 and 2014. We'll see. Again, struggling with being realistic about what I can accomplish in a day.
4. I want to attempt to be more connecting. I'm a project person and I often brush others off when I'm in the middle of working on something. I want to try harder to pull myself away from my activities long enough to give my husband a genuine hug and kiss good-bye and/or hello, to look my girls in the eyes when they interrupt to tell me something, and to think about how I can help when I friend texts me about their struggles. Basically, I want to be more Christlike in my daily interactions with others. I want to truly love people because those relationships are a million times more important than checking something off my to-do list.
So - there they are. Just 4, but I've still got my work cut out for me.
Happy New Year! Let's make 2013 the best yet!
