I am not big on resolutions. Why make half-hearted promises when in actuality, you know you aren't going to follow through? That's me. I make some every year, and every year....usually by mid January...I'm like "screw it".
However, this year is different. I have just one resolution: Be Happy.
I am going to be happy and not let my stress, worries, or anger at situations affect my children. I'm going to enjoy motherhood, because it is such a wonderful gift to have children. No more being too busy or stressed to read night-time stories. I will spend more time listening and doing things than placating her with toys. For my son, I will get down on the floor more and play with him! I will also take way more pictures this year.....because my babies are growing up way too fast!
I will make an honest attempt not to sweat the small stuff. This is hard for me, because I worry and then it eats at me. However, I will resolve not to make mountains out of molehills and to breathe before I take action.
I guess this one resolution I made has several parts to it. However, they are all part of me being HAPPY.
Here's to a great 2013.
