Until yesterday, I was almost certain that I would not be writing a resolution post. The more I thought about it, though, the more I realized that my resolution this year, and always, should be to be mindful. Mindful of how I'm spending my money. How I'm treating my family, friends, and coworkers. Mindful of what I'm reading and how I'm spending my time. How I treat myself--both physically and mentally. I know this goal blows all of the goal-setting rules out of the water. It's not specific or measurable or attainable or time-limited. It is relevant, though.
So often, I throw caution to the wind and spend money on things that will neither make me happy nor fulfill some specific need. I don't spend as much quality time with Liam or with Craig as I would like. And I know that I'll never be perfect, but I do hope to be more mindful of the impact of my actions as I approach day to day tasks.
A few of my favorite resolution-related tasks from around the web yesterday include:
-I love these resolutions and think #4 is brilliant.
-It's so important to remember this.
-I love Elizabeth's monthly goals (modeled after Kate's from 2012), and I think I'm going to take a similar approach to my 30 by 30 list, which already needs a few modifications.
