New Years Resolutions?

Do you make New Years Resolutions? 

I normally don't.  I hardly ever follow through on them when I do make them and so it's sorta like making a to do list that is way too long and you really know you won't finish it all in the time you have but you make it anyway and are super bummed with yourself when you don't finish it up.  That's how New Years Resolutions are for me.  I make them sometimes and then I can't follow through and I end up feeling depressed about it.  It's a fun time.

But this year I'm thinking about making some.  Of course making them realistic and something I can follow through on without disappointing myself.  But this will take some time.  Some time to figure out exactly what I can handle right now and how well I know myself in order to keep them.

1. I will put me first sometimes.  I am notoriously terrible about making me a priority, as I think a lot of women/wives/mothers do.  But this year I won't feel bad if I just wanna go shopping alone or take a nice long bubble bath alone, or spend a smidgen extra money on the healthy food I need to fuel my mind and body the right way.

2. I will love my family always and make a major effort to be patient even when I am running low on sleep.

You know what?  I think that's it for me.  I could make a ton more but my chances of keeping them would be small.  So we'll stick with those to and focus my efforts.

Good Luck with yours!
