On a Personal Note: New Years Resolutions

Posted by gppasswords On January - 6 - 2011


I always make New Year's resolutions. Even if it's something simple like trying to be a nicer person or to make my bed every morning (yes I had that one even after high school.) I'm a pretty tradition-oriented person, so it's probably just a habit to make some kind of New Year's resolution every year. Some years I'm more successful than others, but I really think the point of it for me, is to start the year off with a clean slate. It's pardoning yourself for last year's screwups. It's like saying, last year might have been a bust, but I have a new chance this year. 2010 was actually a pretty good year for me, resolutions-wise. A year ago, I vowed to lose 30 pounds. Shockingly, the weight came off--- 32 pounds by April, and it's still pretty much off (though I haven't taken into account the holiday poundage.) I have my sister, Kelly, to thank
for that one, because she motivated me and cheered me on, along the way. Some of my other goals were a little more abstract, like being a more patient mom. I think I might have made strides in the right direction on that one, but I'm not sure I actually am where I want to be with that, so I'll keep that on my list. One of my resolutions in 2011 is to run the Baltimore marathon in October. After running the half marathon this fall, I know this goal is attainable, though it will take a lot of training and hard work. It's just nice knowing my husband Scott and sister Kelly are planning to run the marathon too. The other resolution I'm setting for myself isn't so measurable, but it's pretty important. I really want to try and make the absolute best use of my time. There are only so many hours in a day, and like every other parent, I need to make time to work, clean, cook and spend time with Scott and the kids. The spending time with family is becoming even more important as Julie will be in full-time kindergarten next year. I just want to cherish these last months of her being home with me. So, do you make New Year's resolutions? If so, what are yours?
