Resolutions--do you or don't you?
I almost always make New Years Resolutions even though I KNOW nine times out of ten I'm not going to stick with them. It just doesn't happen. Each year I decide this is the year but it never is. LOL. This year I'm not making resolutions but I did make a few goals of a different kind. A few days ago I turned 29. Now I know this isn't old but when you're staring down 30 for the first time it is a little scary. There were things that I'd planned to get done before I turned 30. Some I did and some I didn't. That aside, when I look at my life there are so many things that I know I need to change. Not just physically like losing weight. I know my body will start changing and and I need to get my weight under control before those changes but also personally. I don't DO anything. I never really go out. My husband and I were sitting back thinking the other day and I don't think we've done anything together, just the two of us in a year! That is way too long. I want quality family time as well. Our weekends are spent at home most of the time which is great but I want memories. I want my girls to SEE things and I want to be the one to show it to them. I want them to remember who much fun we had together. I also having writing goals that I'm determined to see come to pass not only for myself but also to show my kids that hard work really does pay off. That you can make ALL your dreams come true.
See what staring 30 in the face did to me? It made me think. So this year, on my birthday I made my 29th year GOALS. I'm going at this personally, putting into action things that I've wanted to do for a while. Now I know basically what I'm doing is resolutions but it feels different to me. I'm making life changes for myself and my family.
So do you make New Years resolutions? If not, why don't you? If so what are your resolutions for this year?
I had to add this because it thought it was funny. I just ran to the store to get my husband some Nightquil and they carded me!!! Seriously! I got carded to buy cold medicine.
