I'd like to exercise every day, I'd like to be a fantastic wife and mother every day. But, I know for me that "every day" is unrealistic. It seems to me that when we put terms on like "every day" we are setting ourselves up for failure. I am in no way knocking those of you who have made daily goals, nor am I saying they aren't achievable. I'm actually rooting for you, I want you to be successful with your goals. I'm saying that for me, if I put the words "every day" in, that when I miss a day or two, I'll use that as the excuse to drop the whole goal. So, I'm making my resolutions in broad terms. In 2009, I'd like to:
- Be a better person.
- Be more positive towards myself and others.
- Exercise more.
- Laugh more, worry less.
- Have fun with my kids and husband.
- Make a difference to one person.
- Read a few "books of substance."
- Spend less, save more.
Those shouldn't be too hard, should they?
