I could make a resolution to exercise more.
And I would start and do it for a few days, maybe even a week.
But honestly, I just don't enjoy it.
And that means I won't do it.
I much prefer to spend my free time cozy in a chair reading a good book.
That...I will do.
So maybe I don't resolve to exercise every single day.
Maybe I will make an effort to walk down the road on a nice day with Flynn instead.
Or play a game of basketball with Peyton and Rhett.
I am not making a resolution to completely revamp my eating habits.
I know from experience that doesn't work for me long term.
I like food too much.
What I can do is be mindful of the choices I am making each day.
If I am having pizza for dinner, maybe I could choose something a bit healthier for lunch, right?
But giving up desserts?
Not likely. : )
Lastly, I cannot resolve to stop worrying.
My anxiety is a part of who I am.
I can continue utilizing the mindfulness meditation and prayers that enable me to put things in perspective.
And lean on my loved ones when I need a helping hand.
So, my friends, that is how I deal with the pressure of making New Years Resolutions.
I am mindful of who I am and what I can and will accomplish.
This year, I will continue to be me.
And strive to be a happy, healthy, content, prayerful, mindful, thankful me.
Happy New Year to each one of you, my friends.
