I have to admit it’s been hard for me to get into the spirit of the new year. At the beginning of 2012 there was so much to look forward to and it was a rather big year for my family. Now at the arrival of 2013, I look at my now 8 month old and want things to slow quite a bit. And I’m not quite sure what to expect this year, there’s nothing big pending like a birth. I guess I’ll have to create something exciting to look forward to.
I have decided to do something a little different for resolutions this year. Instead of making a massive list that motivates me for a couple days before I get completely overwhelmed by it all and say good riddance, I’ve picked a theme for the year and then I’ve written down one specific goal to focus on each month. This year I’m focusing on being kinder to myself, whether that means eating more vegetables, saying no to taking on too much work or complimenting myself more. Often I feel like I have the self esteem of a teenage girl who just got dumped and I want to change that around. So 2013, let’s do this.
What’s your main resolution for the year?
