As you all know, I decided not to do New Year's Resolutions this year. Instead, I set some goals for myself. The biggest of those goals is that I am going to learn to be okay with myself and my new normal. I am going to cut myself some slack and quit beating myself up that I can't do the things I could at this time last year. On the other hand, I am going to celebrate the things I CAN do.
I found a really cool challenge that I think is going to help me with my plan for this year. It is called the 3 in 30 challenge. You can see my first post here. The idea is to set three goals to work on throughout each month. In January I started with smoking, cleaning, and a bit of exercise. I love that these are things I can work on every day and I have a whole month to focus on those things. If I need to start over on something a new month is right around the corner.
Just out of curiosity I looked at my New Year's Resolution post from last year. It's really not anything special; just the typical resolutions that are common. Losing weight, eating better, spending more time exercising, etc. One that really caught my attention was encouraging more positiveness in my family. I would like to do that again as I didn't do so well with that in 2011. This time I'll actually define that and decide what success will look like for me. Stay tuned to see that in my February 3 in 30 post.
