I'm sure Anna June has no idea what a New Year's Resolution is, but she sees me start ideas with new resolve constantly. She is my most enthusiastic supporter, and I love sharing my goals with her, because she can be helpful at keeping me in line.
I know that small, measurable goals work best in being able to say, "Yes, I achieved that!" when one looks back on the year. But to heck with that.
Here are some goals I have for the new year for me personally and for us as a family, in no particular order:
See my Zumba instructor more and my pharmacist less
Go to the park more and the doctor less
See my family more and my co-workers less
Say no more and yes less
Stay home more and go out to eat less
Smile more and frown less
Give away more and buy less
Pray more and worry less
Problem solve more and whine less
Go to the farmer's market more and the grocery store less
Shop local more and big box less
Read more and watch less
Exercise more and eat less
Tea more and soda less
Hug more and yell less
What are your resolutions?
