Don’t get me wrong. I’m a busy girl. I have a job and errands and I exercise and I walk my dog.
I cook meals for myself, and often I do chores. I have lots of people in my life. I even go on dates (occasionally).
Really, I have things to do.
But Wow. I have a lot of free time.
You’d think that would make this whole resolution thing a ton easier. But you know what I’ve noticed?
It is harder to pick a resolution when you have almost unlimited options!
I knew certain goals were just not realistic during this past year. Now almost anything is possible and, to be honest, it’s a little overwhelming. To demonstrate, I’ve made a mind map of my resolution brainstorming – 10 minutes worth – from just this afternoon.
That’s right, in just under 10 minutes, I identified 31 potential resolutions.
And I can’t rule ANY of them out because I don’t have the time, or they won’t fit with my study schedule, or I’m just too stressed out.
I DO have the time. I DON’T have a study schedule. And I’m NOT stressed out.
Except by the fact that I have too many damn resolutions to choose from.
Well, I’m here to tell you, I can’t do it. I can’t pick just one. But I can’t pick 31 either. I think I’ll compromise with two.
My June’s Resolution(s):
- Get Into the Woods – I’ve missed this the most, and whether it’s a short woods walk with Hannah or a real hike, I’m going to do it every week, at least twice.
- Implement Finishing Touches – One of my friends has a routine she calls ‘Finishing Touches.’ At the end of every day, she takes 10-15 minutes to pick up the house. I probably do this about 1/3 of the time, and I am SO MUCH HAPPIER when I am in this habit. This month, I’m going to do it every night.
