New Year Resolutions

2012-12-24 09.34.45

At the end of each December, people make a list of resolutions that they will try to accomplish in the new year. I am no exception. I keep mine simple and tend to use the same ones for they are what I need to try to concentrate on.

1-Try to eat right and exercise- For the most part I been doing well with this.

2-Save a little bit of money each month- This one well I am soso on. We all know when emergency hits the saving get plundered.

3-Try to treat others like you want to be treated- I can work on this more.

I might have some stragglers in the four and fifth spots but my primary ones are listed above. That was until I came across something on Facebook that made me pause.  The post mentioned to get a jar out and every time something nice happens regardless how small, place that on a piece of paper and put it in the container. By the end of 2013 empty it and see how many awesome things happened that you probably forgot occurred.

I really love this idea. We tend to narrow in on the big events in our lives. The items that made us pause and wonder about. The little things sometimes get overlooked or just completely forgotten. So I have decided to do this for the year 2013. I am already excited to see what will be placed in the jar.  The little things that made my day but got left at the waste side due to the hectic way of life. Perhaps this happens since it was not earth shattering by today’s standards. Maybe this will change my perception, I really hope it does.

Happy New Year every one. With that I hope it is an amazing year and that along the way you don’t ignore the little things in life that are just as important.
