So, New Year’s resolutions. I usually don’t make them. It’s not that I’m against making any, it’s just that I hardly ever follow through with them. Heck, I’ve been meaning to clean out my closet for nearly two years now and that still hasn’t happened. I blame cat videos.
But this year. This year will be different. This year I’m going to make resolutions and do my best to stick to them.
For 2013 I will:
- Be an awesome wife. This sounds like it’d be super easy to do, but it’s actually harder than you think.
- Be a kick-ass mom. Same sentiment as above.
- Create/bake/learn/write tons of shiny stuff. I really want to learn to make macarons and speak French.
- Avoid comparing myself to others. Who else wants to join me on this one? It’ll be so good. Trust me.
- Enjoy all the little things that make life amazing. Because you just can’t do this often enough.
How about you? Did you make any resolutions for 2013?
