It’s that time of the year!
You know… the time when we assess everything about ourselves that we hate and make a promise to change, which is depressing and unfair. However, we often need to make those changes and commitments.
For example, I am really lazy. I’m not lazy when it comes to work or school or teaching. I’m lazy when it comes to taking care of myself, which has been explained before here.
This laziness is murder on my self-esteem and my confidence, but it pumps up my happiness. I like wearing yoga pants (all the time) and pulling my hair up in a bun (everyday) and not wearing makeup (ever). Unfortunately, I hate feeling comfy and I hate my hair in a bun and I hate my uneven skin tone without makeup. I am an enigma.
Dilemma? Oh, yeah. (Does it make sense? No. And it doesn’t need to, boys.)
For 2011, my resolutions are not to lose weight, to exercise more or to eventually run a 5K, which I could never do anyway. Instead, my resolution is to be less lazy with my life.
Yes, I want to workout more. Yes, I want to eat healthy. Yes, I want my jiggle to go away when I brush my teeth. But those resolutions are not all I want for next year. I want to cook more (and better – so it tastes good). I want to grocery shop like a freakin’ pro and start saving money. I want to sleep more than five hours a night. I want to walk the dog more.
While none of those are actual resolutions (maybe, kinda), they all involve me being WAY less lazy than I am.
I just want to have a desire to do all the things I need and I want to do. Less lazy. Yep. (Although, if I lose a little weight on the way… GO ME!)
