Going Small with New Year’s Resolutions
It’s often the smallest of things that can make a biggest difference. If you feel overwhelmed by the thought of big, gargantuan-sized goals for 2017, think small.
Small Resolutions, Big Impact
1. In my continued quest for house organization, I resolve to stop using the corner of the couch as a holding place for laundry and other miscellaneous items.
2. I will stop losing track of my phone 43 times a day.
3. When frustrated or anxious in the presence of my children, I resolve to laugh more times than I erupt in anger. #laughitoff
4. I also resolve to laugh more often when I’m angry by myself.
5. I will try to ignore at least half the eye rolls from the 10-year old.
6. I will try not to roll my eyes when I’m asked these questions.
7. I will first keep a light heart, witty speech, and a sense of humor when dealing with customer service.
8. I am not ever going to give up popcorn, but I will try not to consume four large bowls of it in one sitting every time I make it while watching a movie.
9. I am not ever going to give up coffee, but I will dilute my afternoon cold brew coffee with water now that I found out my homemade cold brew is actually concentrate. #energyshot
10. I will not wait until the boys’ bathroom smells like an outhouse before cleaning the toilet.
11. I will teach my boys how to clean toilets.
Hehe! Good luck with those. My serious resolutions include more blog posts throughout the year, rebranding, and possible partnerships. My smaller resolutions include teaching the dog to go outside WITHOUT ME, learning how to at least put up with the snow instead of whining about it, and finding the perfect apple cobbler recipe. (I’ve tried them all, and none seem quite right). Thanks for getting me thinking about these. 🙂
Thanks for coming by, Deborah. I love your little resolutions! The dog going out on his own should rock your world, for sure. 🙂
These are great! I have been doing something similar. Instead of one BIG word to guide me in the new year, this year, I’ve been given three smaller ones. It should make for an interesting year.
Good luck to you, Kayla! I’ve seen several different ways people are using words and resolutions as focus for 2017.
