This year I'm not doing resolutions that I'll break within a week into the new year. Instead I'm picking a word to make my theme of the year. This seems a little more doable for me. It'll be a word that I can work into most aspects of my life and hopefully by the end of the year I'll be a better person for trying it.
When I was younger and I wanted things to happen RIGHT now my Mom would always tell me, "Patience is a virtue," but she was my Mom and I thought she was crazy. However, now that I'm a grown-up, or pretend to be one, I wish that patience was a virtue that I more easily embraced. For this reason I've decided that I'm embracing patience as my theme for 2014.
My kids are only going to be so little for a short time. Before I know it they won't need me to help them get dressed or snuggle them. I want to cherish this time and not feel like I'm always trying to just get through something. This goes for other aspects of my life too. In my marriage where I want my husband to do everything on my time. In my weight loss journey where I just want this damn weight to melt off, I mean really it took it longer than 30 minutes to gain why can't I be patient in taking it off?
I won't promise to be prefect in practicing patience every day but I can promise to try my best each day. I don't want spend 2014 wishing that I'd done better so I'm going to live my own advice and remember that everyday is a day to do better than the day before.
