New Years Resolutions/Goals

I’ve always sort of loathed new years resolutions, not because I’m against having goals in place, but simply because I think resolutions add too much pressure.  We build up so much expectation for this “start” to a new year, when really, they are all just days, days when we could make a change without all of the hubbub.  I feel silly feeling so resentful towards a goal; all I’m saying is dream big every day.  If your resolution fell short yesterday, try again today.  If you cheated on that diet only three days in, have oatmeal for breakfast the next morning.  No one’s standing above you with their finger wagging judgment.  I guess that brings me to my own today’s resolution: Stop worrying about what everyone else thinks.  And with that, be kind.  Everything will work out.

    I made a list last night, with the intention of sticking to it, but I already broke at least one (which involved going to the gym this morning…whoops!). Still, having them in place makes me feel like I have something attainable to do this year, so I’m all for it!

  3. LOVE that you’re resolving to go on dates… just because you’re married doesn’t mean you’re not still dating each other! 😉

    I don’t set resolutions either, but I’m thinking the “don’t feel guilty if you don’t get to exercise” is too good to pass up. Happy new year Lexi!
