You know I love lists, right? Well, I made one of these last year but didn’t’ really stick with it. I am hoping that by sharing this with all of you it will prompt me to be better at sticking to it!
I don’t believe in New Year’s Resolutions. You make them and they are out the door normally by happy hour on January 1st. At least for me they are. It’s just not practical to make a resolution and then just “BAM! It’s January 1st, GO! DO IT!” Resolutions and changes take preparation and time and determination. Not just a date to start it. So I don’t make resolutions, but what I do make is a list for the year. A list of all those things that you just keep putting off. The things that you want to do, but just never make time to do them. Then you have the year to start knocking items off your list.
Normal day to day things aren’t on here, duh! You have to feed your children…like EACH day, I know annoying right? But what I can put on my list is to incorporate them into cooking more or using a new ingredient each month. Not on the list: Laundry. On the list: Purging my closet with each season. Things I need to do, but aren’t life or death so always get pushed off!
Here is my list:
I am sure I will add to this as the year goes on. It is meant to be a running tally of all those things that I want to accomplish in this new year but know that all 40 items can’t just be started and maintained right on January 1st! This is more my style! (and I get oober excited to cross things OFF my list…you know, you remember right??)
