Being Better

Happy New Year !

As always, I see people making their New Year’s Resolutions posts and saying how they want to get in shape or eat healthier, et cetera. While those are great resolutions, how many will stick to them ? Are those the resolutions for me ? No.

I find myself wanting to dig deeper into who I am as a person, mother and wife. I want to better who I am, because honestly, I feel like I could be doing so much better in each of those areas. My resolutions are going to consist of spending more time with my family, less time on social media, and being kinder. This year will focus on paying off debts, and saving more money. Hopefully purchasing our first home, or at least paving solid ground to that home.

Part of my New Year’s Resolutions will consist of not letting my previous “victim” status consume me like it has in past years. I want to be the “survivor” I know I am, the person with a little extra baggage, not the weak and suffering person that can barely handle and hang on to life.

To some these may not be the appropriate resolutions, but for me, I think they’re perfect. I have a lot of work to do on myself, but I am hopeful that I can at least do half of what I am aiming to do.

So, here’s to the New Year and the things we can accomplish.
