I don’t want to make resolutions because I don’t want to hate myself if I fail. Instead, I want to just make a list of things I want to do!
1-I want to do everything I do because I want to do it. Not because someone else suggested I do it, or because I think someone else wants me to do it. This is going to be the year of me. (this is not directed at anyone…I realized after I typed it that someone might think I’m telling them to leave me alone, so not the point)
2-I want to finish the project I started in November. It was going to be a Christmas gift for someone, but I never got it finished. I want to finish it this year. I should have realized that getting it done between November and Christmas simply wasn’t going to happen. It is going to take more than a few weeks.
3-I want to cook more. This may have additional perks such as saving Jenn and I calories and money from avoiding take out. But I don’t want to to it because I want to lose weight. I want to do it because I do enjoy cooking. I would like to try 3 new recipes a month. I would say one a week, but sometimes that just doesn’t happen when we are super busy.
4-I want to finish the basement. I want to finish setting up my crafting area and I want to make myself a meditation corner. I’ve added some silly things to my Amazon wish-list so that I can have the worlds cutest meditation corner ever. I loved the acupuncture I did back when ttcing, and started to meditate then too. I loved it, but walked away from it for one reason or another. I want to run back into its arms.
5-I want to think about spirituality. This is not to say that I want to get back on speaking terms with the big guy, just that I want to have a spirit full of peace. This want has a lot to do with the above want.
6-Most importantly I want to make sure that the people I love don’t doubt for one moment how much I love them. I want to make sure I spend the entire year showering them with the love I feel. Well, most of them. I don’t forsee showering Chris with a lot of emotion. Although he did give me the world’s best hug on New Year’s Eve. I may have teared up!!
So those are my six wants for the year. I want much more, but these are the first six that I plan on focusing on. I will update ya’ll on how I’m doing with them all!!
(like, Jenn and I started deep cleaning the house the other night, if the rest of the house is perfectly clean I feel like I can go work in the basement without feeling guilty. I’ve also been printing tons of recipes I want to try!!)
