For many people a New Year’s resolution may look something like this.
“This year I will get in shape.”
“My New Year’s resolution is to lose weight.”
Or, more specific
“I will lose 20 pounds in 2017.”
My New Year’s resolution is to “keep on keeping on.” I’m not starting anything new. I’m not setting a nebulous goal for myself. I’m not even vowing to break a bad habit. I am going to make a list of all the things that I have decided are part of a healthy day for me. Some of these things I have been doing for years, others for a few months, but I want to be aware of them and work to do them EVERY day.
- read the Bible
- take vitamins and supplements twice a day for hormonal health
- drink gelatin
- do T-Tapp
- drink a Green Thickie
- drink 5-6 glasses of water
- wash face using oil cleansing method
- use Wellness Mama toothpaste and oil pull
- go to bed with a clean kitchen sink
The last one is probably the hardest for me and the one my husband is most interested in. His love language is acts of service and clean dishes make him feel loved. Washing dishes is right up there with doing laundry. I’ll do it, if I have to, I guess. Doing the laundry should be up there too, but I don’t want to do it every day.
This list might change over the course of this year, but this is a good start.
Alright, here is my one, big, nebulous, hashtag-able New Year’s resolution: be a friend.
I don’t really have any friends and the one thing my husband is always saying to me is if I want a friend I need to be a friend. So there is my big idea for 2017. Now I have to figure out how to be a friend.
