Ready for 2013, but without resolutions

Pin It

Embracing the big picture without getting caught up the details

By Kelly Hockenberry, Columnist, The Times

2013.

Lucky 13!

Are you feelin’ it?

I am.  Wanna know why?  Because THIS time I am NOT going to make any resolutions.  (I’m actually twitching as I type).  But, seriously…EVERY year I make a laundry list of ways to “improve” myself (which, inevitably include a diet and exercise regime designed for *Olympic caliber athletes).

*news flash:  I am not an Olympic caliber athlete

I saw this picture on Pinterest (via LostCreekAcres) and had to share because it sums things up nicely:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Funny, huh?

So, instead of creating a checklist of unattainable goals, I’ve decided to make resolutions more reflective of the “big picture.”  Mature, right?

Here is MY “Top 5”:

  1. Enjoy All the Little Things
  2. Take Risks
  3. Be Grateful
  4. Make An Impact
  5. Bite My Tongue (sometimes)

I do love the fresh start that the New Year brings.  The possibility for growth seems limitless!

I also think it’s important to ask two critical, very personal questions:

  1. What was the BEST thing that happened this year?
  2. What was the WORST thing?  And, more importantly, what did I learn from the experience?

Sorry to get all “Stuart Smalley” on you, but, intriguing…right?

I would love to hear YOUR resolutions for 2013!  Add them to the Comments Section below!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
