I have never really been one to make resolutions. Every year it’s a big thing and then no more then 6 weeks later we start to hear how everyone has ‘given up’ or ‘failed’ or just plain forgot what they were hoping to accomplish for the new year. The new year resolutions are sort of all seen as that thing you hope to do because it’s the new year and we’re supposed to … but then never follow through.
This year I am making a goal for myself. It’s huge. It might be unattainable. I might ‘fail’ but I have a feeling that it will be good for me. Not only to strive for it – but perhaps to realize that what my idea of the goal is actually different from reality. Resolution for this year is:
to get organized and find balance – health, marriage, motherhood, self, work, household
Did you roll your eyes and say ‘good luck’? Was your first thought ‘ yeah, me too’ ? Is this something that you struggle with hoping to attain also? When I share this goal with others that seems to be the reaction I get. I know that is a HUGE goal.
I know it is kind of the motherload of all goal. What is different though – well, what I am hoping will be different, is that I am not striving for a PERFECT balance. I am not striving to be PERFECT in all those areas. Basically I am striving for happiness. Happiness for me will come with finding it – even if it is accepting that it wont always be ‘perfect’.
I have a feeling I am not making much sense. It is all kind of hard to explain but I hope to explore more of this through out the year. Maybe overtime I will start making more sense
