I generally don’t make New Year’s resolutions. To me, there’s something unrealistic about resolving to change something about myself at the stroke of midnight. I mean, resolving to eat healthier is a great goal but let’s be honest, on January 1st you can usually find me in a sweatpants ball on my couch eating ALL the greasy and salty things because I celebrated a little too much the night before. So it’s like I’ve already failed miserably. On day 1. No thanks.
But I’m not a total resolution Grinch. I actually have big plans for 2013. So this year, instead of making a list of all the things I want to change about myself, I’m going to look forward to all the moments – big and small – that will make 2013 a great year. Here are some of the things I’m excited to do this year:
Volunteer. Take a cooking class. Take a trip with my husband. Blog more. See my best friends. Run another 1/2 marathon. Keep a journal. See more live music. Swim in the ocean. Teach my dog to fetch. Skype with my family. Get a massage. Take more pictures. Go on a road trip. Buy a house.
2013, let’s do this shall we?
