I've never been huge on New Year's resolutions. Sure, I'll make them here and there, but I've never had any that I really felt I needed to keep; none that were super important to me. I believe self-improvement is important, so I usually set some sort of goals for myself. But, again, these goals were never anything of huge importance (it was never much of a big deal if I didn't achieve them in that year).
Looking back on last year, while it was great for so many reasons, there were parts that were very rough. Parts I don't want to deal with for a whole other year. Because of that, I do have a few resolutions that I really want to keep this year.
Basically, what it boils down to, is that I don't do a great job taking care of myself. I am extremely guilty of putting myself (especially my health) second to most all else going on around me. I think it started when I quit teaching. My routines and daily structure has never been the same since then. Also, my self care has become much worse recently, since becoming a mom. Don't misunderstand me, I love being a mom; I just need to be better at balancing my own needs while still giving as much of myself as I can to Fox. Both of these huge changes in my life really threw me off -not to say they were necessarily negative, I just have yet to get back into the groove of things.
So, here are my resolutions (I'm a big fan of writing down and sharing goals. I feel more accountable and usually do better keeping them when I do this)
