I resolve to put myself out there . . . But not too far out there.
I resolve to protect my heart and my time.
I resolve to volunteer more often . . . But not for everything. I resolve never again to agree to be a room mom, plan the holiday party, and do the unit newsletter at the same time.
I resolve to be more understanding of my spouse when he says “mission first” . . . But only when he’s looking. I am still going to cry in the bathroom when he’s not.
I resolve to sometimes let him see me cry.
I resolve to be a better friend. I resolve to drink less wine and eat less chocolate with my friends. I resolve to sometimes bring a veggie tray to the potluck.
I resolve to stop lying in my resolutions–everyone knows I’m not going to trade wine for veggies.
I resolve to put myself first sometimes.
I resolve to make this year the year that I chase my dreams. I resolve to not be afraid of failing.
I resolve to check my husband’s uniforms for ballpoint pens BEFORE I put it in the wash.
I resolve to stop doing my husband’s washing. Scratch that. I’ll do his washing, as long as he does the cooking.
I resolve to read less “bad news” and seek out uplifting stories.
I resolve to be a force for good and give the world more good stories to write.
I resolve to stop wearing my husband’s PT gear as pajamas.
I resolve to speak up when I see something that isn’t right.
I resolve not to let fear rule my words and actions. Even when it’s hard.
I resolve to let a healthy level of fear encourage me to clean my carpets more often because housing inspections and move-out fees.
I resolve to have the best year ever for 2016.
What do you resolve to do in the new year?
