Or, well, maybe I am full of myself and that was just a really wordy way to say "Hey, it's time for Kayleigh to make some resolutions ya'll!!" *sigh* At least I tried...
I found the image today on Pinterest and it kind of inspired me. In the past my resolutions have been utterly soaked and dripping in negatives. Don't do this. Don't eat that. Stay away from that. Don't watch that.
I am really changing right now. I am trying to make my goals and decisions in a way that facilitate positive change in my life so I am bringing you along for the ride, my dear blog readers!
Those things listed in the image there are my "resolutions" for 2012. Once a month, during the last week of the month, I will blog about how I met those resolutions in the last month. As an example I am going to try to do it for December. Some of them, obviously, will not have been met because I didn't care last month. But I want to commit to working towards positive change and growth in 2012 and I really think this is a good way to do it.
This month I have been trying very hard to dwell on the positives with my work situation. Things are so stressful and hard. Focusing on client care and being the best darn DSP I can has really helped my attitude.
Hah. Yeah. Sure. Not so much. ;) I will be keeping track of the days that I do go exercise and will give that number here. It is unrealistic for me to say that I will exercise everyday in 2012.
Again, not so much in December. If it counts, I felt guilty every time I binged on goodies. :) I am not going to turn my blog into a calorie counting blog, but I will share what steps I took each month towards living a healthier lifestyle.
Now, I write a lot about work. But I want this portion to be about more than just that. Let's see, this month I worked hard to develop my blog and begin to communicate with other bloggers. I have been trying to write faithfully and give you all an honest representation of me! :)
December was a big month for me and work. This month I stayed strong by trying to keep a positive attitude and not vent to the clients when I was upset. Sometimes it was really hard because it was so "in the moment."
This was not a good month for me and not worrying. Work kicked my butt. I look forward to making an effort to worry less in 2012.
I am a huge fan of listening to music that makes me smile and sing and dance. This month it was (big surprise) Christmas music. I did a lot of dancing in my living room to some wonderful old songs and artists. Maybe here I will add a "song of the month" in the future!
This month I have made a very dear new friend through my blog. I have been really enjoying getting to know her. We have both come to the conclusion that we are two halves of a whole that have finally come together after 24 years. She is such a treasure to me...I feel as though I have known her so much longer than I have.
My blog has brought me so much happiness. It has brought me a new best friend. It has lead me to other amazing blogs. And as I have been writing it I have been slowly growing in confidence and contentment. And happiness. :)
I hope you guys like this idea. I really like it because it is a commitment to monitor how I am progressing with my goals and growing in the things that are important to me. This would be a good way to keep track! I am excited and can't wait to see what 2012 has to offer!
