loathe greatly dislike new year’s resolutions. and frankly, I can’t blame them. conversations [both verbal + on social media] buzz solely around how we’re going to better ourselves in the new year. gyms become much more crowded. and mcdonald’s becomes much less. don’t fret, people will fall back into their ways next week. but regardless it seems, before the clock strikes midnight every individual will spend at least a moment devising a resolution.
I prefer the word goal over resolution. they’re usually taken a bit more seriously, and have a lower associated rate of failure. you say resolution and people respond “oh honey good luck”. you say goal and people say “you can do it”. apparently my brain was not fooled. last year I wrote goals, in 5 different categories, and kept approximately one in each.
it’s better than none.
I, like every year, am diving head first into bettering my life
tomorrow in 2014.
I can’t wake up any ol’ day and turn a new leaf. so I tend to rely on momentous occasions, like my birthday ..or a new year.
I’m not boring you with my list of 2014 goals.
but I will say, if you do one thing today ..set yourself up for success. if your goal is to become healthier, toss out all the cookies + candy and move your work out clothes to a place you can’t avoid in your closet. if you want to become more productive, organize your home or office. and come up with a daily schedule that you can easily follow. if you want to drink more water, treat yourself to a new water bottle that you want to carry with you everywhere. if you want to drink less coffee, this is the wrong blog for advice.
the kitchen is ready // fully stocked with fresh produce. and I sent [J] to work with 5 boxes of christmas cookies. good riddance.
and today I’ll be working on this ..
no piece of paper is safe. I’m going through them all. organizing and neatly placing them in a new [properly labeled] home.
one more tip: take down your holiday decorations.
think of it as spring cleaning for the new year.
happy last day of 2013.
