do i make resolutions? no, i don't. not really. i know i didn't for 2010 and i know i don't have any set for 2011. not that i don't set goals for myself. i suppose i just don't classify them as resolutions.
i never look in the mirror and think "dang! how did i get so perfect?!" never. i will always be the type of person who will want to lose (at least) five pounds. i will always see that wrinkle. i will always wonder if i said something wrong and may have offended someone. if i'm a good mom. if i should be more Godly. if i should be more of a suzie homemaker and less of a i need to run type person. i've told you before that i'm a worrier. see, i'm doing it again.
but i do have some things for 2011 that i'd like to tackle. i was emailing a friend the other day and this is the gist of what i said were my non-resolutions: i want to paint my fingernails more. i want to find a balance for myself, my son, my husband and my work. i want to clean more and complain less. i want to work on not looking like darth vader on the weekends and try to be presentable for unexpected company (and my husband). as i said, i don't consider these resolutions but things i should always work on.
am i the only person who doesn't set resolutions? from the blog world, it seems i may be. so cheers to all you non-resolutioners out there! 2011 will be a great year to complete our non-resolutions. i can feel it.
random: i just googled "darth vader" to make sure i spelled it right before i published this post and i did. maybe i'm a subconscious star wars buff. well, i'm not but i'm still pretty impressed. i actually don't even know what comparison i have to darth vader when i haven't brushed my hair or put on makeup but i suppose i just don't think darth is pretty. i love it when the smallest thing makes me happy. happy correctly spelled random word day!
