I’m not really one to make resolutions. I don’t know why. I can usually think of a list of things to add to a list, but I just really like making lists…. Maybe one resolution could be Do not make too many lists, or more realistically Make prettier lists.
With the impending birthday, there are lots of things that come to mind that I could try to resolve. For one, I’m terrible at making decisions. I have no idea why. I’m a Capricorn/only child. I don’t have a favorite anything. I usually end up with shopper’s remorse (WHY DIDN’T I BUY THAT?!). Naming my child was the biggest decision I have ever made. So another could be Learn to make a decision and stick with it.
My mother would like for me to make a resolution to fall in love. Let’s move on.
I would like to Learn to sew.
I would like to finish my book I’ve been writing (for far too long), and start my next book. Write every day.
I want to be a more patient mommy. A more patient person. Be patient. (Again…Capricorn/only child/single mother.)
I want to be a better friend/daughter. Feel free to keep me honest. Be better.
I want to learn to be a better gluten free cook. Perhaps go raw for a few months. Eat less sugar. Be clean.
And I want to discover how I’m meant to spend the rest of my years. Find a purpose.
The other day, my friends and I instituted No Spend January. Less than twelve hours later, my vacuum cleaner broke, my Maintenance Required light lit up on James Spader (my vehicle), and my child came home with broken glasses (had to go buy Krazy Glue). Do not deprive oneself.
I hope this year is the most amazing yet, for myself and my child; and for you. And remember, tomorrow is another day. Hopefully.
