Reso-what’s?

I pop into Facebook and scroll through the newsfeed of my friends. I see many wishes for a Happy New Year, some very specific good riddance wishes for 2012, and of course some resolutions for the upcoming year.

I never make resolutions. I think they’re bullshit. But, as I was reading through all the posts, my heart softened a little bit. Some of the resolutions were good, some were funny, but mostly I just thought they were cute. We all try each new year to be better versions of ourself. That’s cute; I guess its not bullshit.

I think sometimes those of us who don’t make resolutions kind of still make them, we just don’t make them publicly on Facebook, and heaven’s no, we would not dare write them down anywhere to be seen, even by ourselves. But, I was thinking maybe this year, I would make some sort of resolutions. And write them down with my newly sharpened pencil.

I know goals should be measurable, specific, etc but I’m taking baby steps here. I just have general ideas right now. I would like to resolve to be less busy, to have less on my plate. But, I don’t know how to make that happen. I think overall, I just want to take better care of myself. I want to eat better, I want to be more active. I want to take time to relax. I want to get to bed earlier and wake up earlier. I want to drink more water and take a few more yoga sessions. I want to eat less sugar, because it is shit for your body, but I LOVE sugar. Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love sugar and desserts. So, this will be hard, but I want to do it.

Whatever your plans for the new year, I hope it all works well and I wish you nothing but the best for the new year!
