Yeah, me – i don’t do new year’s resolutions. Why? – they end up becoming another opportunity for me to not complete something. Yet here i am jumping on the word for the year band wagon. Why? – because it “seems” less intimidating to me – but somehow it has turned out to be bigger, much much bigger.
My word for the year is HEALTHY! Not like i want to lose 50 pounds this year cause i just had a baby resolution type healthy, but i want to be well-rounded healthy: physically, spiritually, mentally, socially. Are you seeing how this is bigger? 🙂 Bigger and better I think. I like it cause this year i’m focusing on being a better me. I was talking with my man last night and sharing how it almost makes me feel selfish but i truly believe that a better me means a better us. A better me means a better Mom and a better home. This even overflows to my friends and family – i hopefully become a better daughter, sister and friend.
So far this year i have already:
– started reading daily devotionals from shereadstruth #healthyspiritually
– started a blog #healthymentally
– went to see Les Mis with some friends #healthysocially
– got a chocolate covered do-nut at the store when went to return a redbox movie #failedhealthyphsically
Even though the do-nut was gone before i got home (store 5 minutes away), i am working on the healthy physically but want to share about that later. I plan to post throughout the rest of January on why i feel i need to be healthy in these areas and ways i’m planning to do so. Again, do you see how this is bigger :)? But again – its better, at least for me!
Oh, i don’t have a twitter account yet – at least for now the #s are just for fun – stay tuned.
