Non Resolutions for 2010

Resolutions… I don’t really like the idea of them. It seems that when I make resolutions and I don’t end up keeping them… I feel like I’ve failed. So instead of making resolutions this year… I’m making non-resolutions. Let me explain…

In 2010, I resolve to continue my daily workouts but forgive myself when I lay on the couch for an all day Grey’s Anatomy Marathon. I will continue to eat healthy and stick to my plan… yet I know I’ll blow it Thursday on girl’s night out with plenty of coffee, french fries, and pie. I resolve to buy those adorable shoes I didn’t need and probably will never wear. They will go fantastic with the collection of dresses that still have the tags on them.

In 2010, I resolve to be the best friend I can be… even when those jeans do make your butt look fat or your kids drive me insane. I won’t tell you unless you ask. I will listen to all of your long winded problems and offer the best advice I can… just don’t get mad if I say “Can you repeat that? I wasn’t listening.” I will help you stick to your diet… except on Thursday girl’s night out. (See paragraph two above)

I will continue to love my children far more than any other people on this earth. I will keep them clothed… except when they run around in their undies. I will keep them fed with healthy food… except when I make taquitos for dinner. I will keep them safe… except when I let them jump from couch to couch in the living room.

You see… This year has been a year of discovery for me. I’ve discovered the mystery of me and found out that I’m pretty awesome just the way I am… despite all of my short comings. I believe that it’s the mistakes we make that make us who we are. Once we can embrace our mistakes… we can truly learn to love ourselves.

Happy New Year Friends.
