My two new year’s resolutions.

Every year I enthusiastically make a long list of resolutions that ends up crumpled up into a forgotten ball by the end of the February (sound familiar?).

In the spirit of simplifying my life this year, I am making only two resolutions that encompass everything that I want to accomplish:

Be impeccable with my word…to myself.
Scheduling a workout with a friend? I won’t miss it because I made a commitment. Scheduling a workout with myself? I cancel 99.9999% of the time (helllllllo, holiday beer belly!). This year I am focusing on making promises to myself that I will keep (including finally quitting my job!).

Finding and living with joie de vivre each day.
I’m still currently at the corporate salt mine, spending 8 hours each day glued to my computer monitor doing a job I have a hard time mustering any enthusiasm for. I could choose to be a miserable cog, but instead, I’m determined to enjoy the hell out of every stepping stone I’m on and find excitement and beauty in each day of my ordinary extraordinary life.

What resolutions did you make for 2018?

Current status: excited for Season 3 of Lovesick / wondering how long my Christmas tree will stay up this year / digging Danielle Bradberry’s Sway
