Thursday 13 - Resolution Revolution

Are you making New Year's resolutions? I think they are a good idea, a way to evaluate where you are and where you want to be. And The Secret is all about daydreaming your way to success, right?

  1. Throw out my fat jeans. Since baby and I are in a weight gaining stage right now, I can't set a number, but by next year's holidays I won't cringe when getting into the shower.

  2. Have confidence driving the minivan. Yes, I am that mom. And I am terrified to get behind the wheel of that bohemoth.

  3. Send out updates on the kids. Until I went all headache crazy, I used to send the older relatives an update every month or so. They miss them.

  4. Keep up with my girlfriends. After I have a baby, I lose my brain cells and become a lazy friend. I can do better.

  5. Exercise every day. I need to make this a part of life, like brushing my teeth. Since I got knocked up, I haven't done much at all. I hate to be cold when preggers. And it is COLD!

  6. Meditate. Seriously. I need to take 5 every day to just check in with myself. I get to frazzled.

  7. Keep my eyes open for oportunities to give back. I really want the kids to have a sense of community and helping others really does that.

  8. Keep a cleaner office space. My office is in my bedroom...and it is a bit overrun, which I know freaks out Hubba Bubba. I organize from time to time, but I need to maintain the cleanliness factor.

  9. Make the bed every day. Come on now, do you really? I did in 2006, but then gave it up to see if the man would notice. He didn't.

  10. Get back into the writing groove. After the emotional bumbs I took this year, I've had some time off. I miss writing.

  11. Watch movies! I miss movies. And they come On Demand excuses really...

  12. Read more. Yes, I read lots, as We Call It Research can attest. But, my to be read shelves are bursting. I need to get through them. And it's not like I've stopped buying books...

  13. Count my blessings. This really helps maintain a postive outlook, and we can all use more of that!

What's your New Year's resolution?
