I love the idea of New Year’s Resolutions. I like the idea that every year the universe gives us a great big “restart” button. It doesn’t matter if you ate too much cookie dough last month, and it’s ok if you didn’t make it to the gym as much as you wanted to last year.
A new year starts today, and we get a do over.
Eat less cookie dough – while kids plot what cookies we are baking tomorrow.
Go to gym more – I want to try the classes that intimidated me last year.
Use social media less – it’s a mini-addiction of mine, so I’d like to ease off.
Crochet more – it’s my stand in for social media when I am bored.
Complain less – not really optimistic about this one, but it’s worth a shot.
Drink more water – it’s supposed to be better for me than Diet Coke. I am not convinced.
Hit the snooze button less – this is the most challenging item on my list. Therefore it is last.
Will they stick?
Notice none of my resolutions include hard rules. I like a plan, but I rebel against hard rules. So, hopefully, all of these are doable.
One thing I know for sure is that Lent starts on March 6th… so it’s like a redo of our redo (I really hope my pastoral staff never reads this – oh well, it’s not like they don’t know me).
