I think this year they come for me more out of need than want.
My bout of being down in the dumps over Christmas really made me
So... here is what I have come up with...
This year I need to improve myself:
Mentally... I need to get "right" with myself. There is still a lot of hurt that I have managed to bury and it occasionally creeps out. I need to get rid of it completely so it doesn't have to creep any more. I am way too hard on myself sometimes...I expect perfection when I know perfection is not even close to being a possibility. I see my children putting undue pressure upon themselves. Unfortunately, I know they get that from me. I want to change that. I need to accept me for me. The good and the bad. I need to allow others to treat me well (because I deserve it... yes, I have to repeatedly self-talk myself through this one). I need to remember that no one else but ME needs to forgive me for past doings.(It's so much easier to ask for and accept forgiveness from someone else.)
Spiritually... I need to do a better job of being a spiritual example to my children. I need to become more involved in my church and push for the changes that I want to see happen.
Emotionally... Hand-in-hand this one and the mentally healthy one are skipping along as best friends right now. When I have resolved the hurt and the need for perfection, I won't be on the emotional roller coaster again that I was on over Christmas.
Physically... I just need to get back to being tone. To be able to chase after my boys and not feel like an old woman. I was there this summer. I fell off the "keeping fit" bandwagon right after Thanksgiving. I need to remember... Don't give up! Push hard. Push through.
I have decided that above all... this will be my motto this year:
Live your life to the fullest. Never regret.
What resolutions did you come up with this year? Have you already broken them?
