I’ll make this really short.
(Because it’s New Year’s Eve and NO ONE should be reading blogs and geeking out on their computer. You should be getting pissed drunk, taking shots out of someone’s belly button. That’s the plan for us, at least.)
I’m not making any resolutions for 2012. Or goals. Or life changes.
They just don’t sit well with me. I either a) fail to complete said goal and feel worse than when I started or b) take my goal to an extreme.
So I just don’t go there.
Now that I downed goal setting, I will say one thing that I want to do better. Every year and every day.
BE MORE PRESENT.
Particularly when it comes to my parenting.
These years are FLEETING! I want to get down on the floor and roll around. I want to get sucked into Henry’s imaginary world. I want to respond with more than a non-committal “Oh, really” when Henry asks, “Did ya see that, Mom? Did ya see?” Because “Oh, really” isn’t even an appropriate response to that question.
So that’s my un-goal goal. I won’t fail. I just can’t.
QUESTION: Do you make resolutions or goals? What are they?
