I’ve been making a New Year’s Resolution for pretty much my entire adult life. And I’m pretty sure it’s always been the same thing. “Get Fit”. It never happens. I don’t think I even try.
So this year, things are going to be different. I am not making a New Year’s Resolution. I am going to set a goal. And that goal is simply to “TRY”.
I am going to TRY harder, more succinctly & with more effort. Just generally, across the board. You know what I mean, at EVERYTHING!!!
Number 1 is top of my TRY list & that is to be more positive, to focus on the positive & to only speak in a positive manner. I have on reflection of 2014 taken to speaking negatively just to fill in space, to make myself heard. I know it’s a self preservation thing, I’m shy & to make up for that I speak without thinking at times. But it’s not healthy for me, or for the person on the receiving end. Anyway, from now on, I will TRY to be more positive. There, already started!!
Here’s a few more items on my TRY list. This year I will TRY:
to live more sustainably
to be more efficient in my housework (I’m lazy, I suck! – Oops, negative, sorry!)
to spend more quality time with my family
to dedicate more time to me
to balance my work & family more effectively
to keep my wardrobe tidy & organised
to be a great friend, daughter, Mum, Wife
to take the time to be thankful
Oh yeah, and to TRY to start up a real exercise regime, maybe even join a class or something!!!
Do you make New Year’s Resolutions & how does that go for you?? If you were going to try harder at something this year, what would it be?
