I don’t normally do resolutions, at least not in the traditional sense. They almost never seem to get fulfilled, and are a “chore” that comes back to haunt you. “I thought you were (giving up) (Focusing on) (Trying to) ”
So rather then focus on something specific. I plan on trying to live each day in the moment. Not look forward or backward.
That doesn’t mean I won’t save money, Or that i won’t freeze my excess produce, etc. It doesn’t mean I wont plan out the budget.
It means when I’m at the show, I’ll be at the Show! Focused on the movie, the company surrounding me, the enjoyment of the moment itself.
I need to stop letting sneaky worries, concerns, annoyances, get into my head, drawing my focus to something else.
I missed so much of my kids lives, waiting for them to talk, and walk, and ask questions, letting each stage pass me by. Not that I wasn’t a part of their lives, I enjoyed their childhood, but more as a spectator. I was worried about my job and money, and time, and what I could do and what I couldn’t do with an infant, toddler, child, teenager.
If I had to do it all over again, I would be “There” more.. Not just as a spectator or a participant, but with each moment being my entire focus.
I think if I have to be honest, I’ve missed much of my own life too, for the same reasons.
This is my goal.. My resolution if you will.
To live for each moment, accepting all that it has to offer and coming out richer for it.
My two cents,
