Resolutions

If I put them out there for the world to see, I can't go wrong!

Here are my resolutions for 2014:

1. Be reading, constantly. To help, I've started a virtual book club on Goodreads, to ensure I read at least one book a month. Join me! Right now we are in the voting stage to decide this month's book... I'll keep you posted on what we choose, just in case you'd like to participate from afar.

2. Be hydrated. I drink a glass of water in the morning and one right before bed, but hardly any in between. Santa brought me this nifty Flavor Infuser Water Bottle($15) though, so that should help!
 
3. Be Present. This quote says it all:

4. Be out-of-the way nice to people. Compliment and make cheery small talk with strangers. Smile more. Pay for the person behind me in the drive-thru. Basically, while I'm out in public, I want to strive to make everyone I encounter just a little bit happier-- even if it's just for a second.

5. Give credit where credit is due. If someone is doing a great job, I'm going to let their superior know. The guy who helped me out the the car and held a genuine conversation with me? Tell his boss how awesome he is. The server who did a fantastic job? Let the manager know.

6. Improve myself. I'm going to try and invest more time in the things I love, and will make me a more well-rounded, worthwhile person (instead of getting sucked into the TV every night.) Doing more puzzles. Blogging. Playing more piano. More yoga. More meditation. More volunteer work. All the little things that make me happy outside of work and mommyhood!

So let's hear it... what are your resolutions?
