New Year's Resolutions

I don't typically make resolutions as they are likely to get broken by day two and forgotten by day three.  I'm just not good at them.  But this year I am making not just one...but two!

I know.  Lofty goals.

Both are things that I started to improve upon last year and want to make a PSA that I will be again working towards these goals.

Ready for them?

Number one...to be on time.  ALL the time.

Man have I become amazing at being consistently late to social dates.  It's ridiculous and rude and super embarrassing.  And while it often involves things that are out of my control (delivery trucks blocking me in is a frequent occurrence), that's still not really an excuse.  Because hello...if it happens regularly, I should know better to build in that extra time.  I've been getting better, even early {gasp...what's that??} on occassion, but I want to be consistent.  My friends are super important to me and showing up late is unacceptable.

Number two...to be in photos and stop obsessing at how {fill in the blank...terrible, fat, un-cute, etc} I look.  I read this blog post about a year ago and it really stuck with me.  It has made me really think about how I perceive myself and how I avoid being photographed, but in the process, avoid making memories.  That doesn't mean I don't want to improve.  Oh I totally do.  But more than that, I want to get better at living in the moment and not missing out on making memories simply because of the self-deprecating dialog taking place in my noggin.

And to prove I am willing to go big or go home on this one....

I think these are GREAT goals. I know you will achieve both of them! It is so true about the picture taking, you miss out on so many memories that you will want later in life! Good luck girl!

Happy New Year to my dear KK! Love the being on time resolution. As the only one of my friends that is ever on time, I really appreciate your effort! :) And as for the photos, it's clearly all in our heads b/c I didnt even realize you were in a swim suit. My eyes went directly to the big smiles on your faces. :)
