My 2017 resolutions are a little more refined than the simple ones I chose last year. Last year I wanted to live life to the fullest, love with all my heart, and laugh (a.k.a. be kinder to myself). I did a lot of those things, but I feel like those are more long-term everyday life goals, and I still have room for improvement. This year I want to continue to do so, but with a little more specific goals in mind…
I want to be more intentional with every choice I make in life. This means not making impulse buys because I might use it later, or because so-and-so will love it. It means being more respectful of things money can’t buy, like time or love. And being more respectful of the Earth as well as I once again attempt to move toward my goal of little to zero-waste.
Live with less.
This kind of ties in with a theme I’ve had going for a few years now (and with my goal above). I feel like I’ve never fully, fully buckled down on it and I think I’m ready to make the jump into it head-first. It has usually only been myself off the deep end about too much stuff, but lately my little family has been more on-board than ever before. Family goal? Ha.
Make time for myself.
I have been especially bad at this in the last year. I work too much and am really bad at trying to be everything for everyone else. I constantly push aside time I should use for my own wellbeing and do for others instead. I guess it’s not a bad trait to have, but I need to realize (and prioritize) my own health and sanity too.
What are your resolutions for this year?
