First Resolutions

I have a confession.  I have never made a New Years resolution.  Never.  Some may think that could mean I am terrible at goals, and you're right.  I am.  However, that's not the reason I have never made one.  For some reason, New Year's Resolutions remind me of cheesy quotes I loved in high school.  You know- the ones about dancing and loving life and singing.  I do not know why I relate the two, and I definitely don't judge others for making them.  Goals are great and I could stand to make a few more.  But I don't know, the whole commercialism of New Year's goals seems insincere- the businesses attempting to lure in new customers based upon self-loathing and self-improvement- that's what I really dislike.

But you know what?  I think I'm going to make one some resolutions this year.  I think it's time.  Insincerity or not, goals really are a good thing.  So, I thought I would share them on here.  In fact, some of my resolutions have to do with this blog.  Yes, very practical, I know.

Well, here it goes:

I am going to start with the one everybody makes.  

1.  I want to exercise more.  Precisely, I'd like to take up yoga.  I'd like to become somewhat decent at yoga.  Can I afford classes?  Absolutely not.  So, who wants to recommend some amazing at home yoga videos?  Better yet, who wants to be my personal yoga teacher?  

2.I want to blog every day.  Yes, I know that is a huge goal to make.  There are not many bloggers attempt to write everyday, and it's not even necessary, however, I want to.  I want this blog to truly tell a story, for it's words to not be in vain- because if I do not write enough, there will be no interest to keep it going.  I won't be interested and you won't be interested.  So, every day it is.  

3.I want to be a better wife.  I want to love my husband better.  This year has been so difficult for us and all of our financial difficulties and parental concerns have really taken a tole of our marriage.  We need renewed commitment- where we keep putting each other first.  I love my husband. And yes, I know this sounds broad.  That's why I am not going to put any pressure on this resolution.  I'm not sure what this will look like, but I do know that it will be more free-flowing and in the moment.  A lifestyle, if you will.  He has more patience than anyone I have ever met.  He is crazy, but so am I.  We make a great match if we just let ourselves be okay. sigh, everything really is okay.

My husband and I are amazing dreamers.  We are wonderful at coming up with ideas.  Yet, we are severely lacking in the "planning" department.  We always get stuck on "well, what's the first step, then?"  It's so easy for us to dream of where we could be in a year from now, but we freeze up when thinking of how to get there.  Anyone else have that problem?  

Well, those were my first New Year's resolutions!  What do you all think?  Proud, I'm sure.  Now, I'd like to hear what others are striving for.  Extra bonus for creativity.
