It’s almost that time of the year again… you know, the time to make New Year’s resolutions.
How often do you keep your resolutions though?
Do you make goals like: be a more positive parent, lose 75 lbs., run 2 miles a day, do more things as a family? Those are noble goals, but they are quite lofty and each one realistically requires many small baby steps to even be able to begin to achieve them.
I confess; I’ve made the resolution “be a more positive mom”! I tried to say encouraging things to my kids in the morning while getting ready for school. I attempted to organize my life more efficiently so I would be less stressed and have more energy.
But despite all my great efforts, by Ground Hog Day, I had given up and had literally forgotten about the “positive” list tucked away in a basket in my night stand.
Things changed 8 years back when I decided to stop making New Year’s resolutions.
