New Year’s Resolutions…

New Year’s Resolutions are funny things.  They usually incorporate some sort of self-improvement, a goal of some sort for the upcoming year.  Gosh, how many times was I going to be 10 pounds lighter the following year?  Exercise more, eat less cheese, be more patient.  What was last years?  OH, I resolved to not look at other people’s phones when they lit up.  Because that’s nosey.  And rude.  So I guess really, my resolution was to be less nosey and rude, with a focus on cell phones.

This year I’m changing things up.  Do I still want to lose 10 pounds, exercise more and eat less cheese?  Yeah, obvi.  Will that happen?  No.  I love cheese.  A lot.  And I’d rather spend time eating cheese than going to the gym.

This year I’m making a resolution I probably should have made a long time ago.  I am resolving to differentiate between my past, present and future.  I recently realized I’ve always allowed there to be gray area in between past and present, where sometimes there should be a distinct line that separates the two.   I feel like making a conscious effort to leave the past in the past, and live in the present will clear my mind for a better future.  The present is a pretty awesome place to be right now… so here remains my focus.

And with that, cheers to all for a very Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year & every holiday in between.  Cheers to egg nog and Christmas carols, accidentally lighting wrapping paper on fire with candles, playing telephone around the dinner table, prank calling pizza for the neighbors,  making cardboard airplanes, stealing shoes off of feet under the table, and whatever other super normal holiday traditions you and your families have.  I’ll be missing my family this year, but am thankful that they’re always only a plane ride away.  NBD.

Love and happiness to all!
