I figured I would post a few resolutions for 2012 and try to get a little bit of accountability started. I don’t think all-or-nothing resolutions are the best way to go about it, because it’s easier to fail that way. So I’m making general goals, and breaking those down into mini-goals in order to make them a bit easier to keep, though I will find out just how much easier as the year goes on.
So what are my resolutions?
Spiritual – My relationship with God affects all of my other relationships, and I want to be in a much better place at the end of this year. Personal quiet time, prayer, and fellowship at church needs to be at the top of my priority list.
Family – I need more patience with my family. Sounds simple enough, but it’s much harder in reality.
Health – Food-wise, I want to shop wisely and cook nutritious meals for my family. It won’t be all-organic and farm fresh, after all, I do have a limited budget, but I need to plan meals and ingredients accordingly. We are what we eat & drink!
Organization – I want to get my house organized, one room or area at a time. Usually, I feel like I can’t have anyone over because my house is disorganized and messy. I want to change that. Setting a cleaning routine and decluttering are two things I want to focus on.
Blogging – Post more often! I’m really horrible at posting regularly, but then again, maybe I’m just really good at posting irregularly? :) I love writing book reviews, even though I’m behind in my reviews. I ordered a book only to find out it’s the last book in a series, so I have to find the first book at the library so I know what’s going on! Go figure.
Of course, at the end of this year, it’s not like it will really matter whether or not I’ve maintained these. End of the world and all that.
I think I’ll wait until after the 2012 apocalypse before buying Christmas presents. No point in shopping if we’re not going to be here, right? :)
What are some of your resolutions? Do you find them easy to keep?
