Normally my new year’s resolutions include very concrete goals. Measurable, cut-and-dry with no gray areas. Goals like ‘blog twice a week’ or ‘1000 calories per day, max.’
I’ve been that way most of my life. Planned, organized, driven and directed. I owe a lot of that to my parents, my discipline with diving, and of course my husband.
But I’m changing things up this year.
Because I have to.
Now, for the entire year, I have 1 goal:
Go with the flow.
And mind the rocks.
Wrapped up in this 1 goal are a trillion little things to help achieve this. Not sweating the small things, don’t fight the rapids, take one day at a time, keep smiling… all those clichéd statements.
My mantra: I am not in control, and that’s ok.
Do what I think is right and see what happens. That’s all I can do.
Because when I think about, I already have everything I need. The things that make me a better person are already in my life. Why change that?
