2010: the goals

My resolutions for 2010 are as follows.

1.) Spend more time with my family. Usually family time is running around. The tv is on, computer is going, dinner is making. I want to take the time to have nothing but us. Goal is a family date twice a month. I know this is important-- especially as my son gets older and starts to spread his wings more and more. I was raised with a mom who pushed family stuff. I'm sure I pushed back & whined, but I have some fond memories of those times!

2.) Date myself at least once a week. How easy it is to forget about my own needs. I plan on scheduling time just for me!! Weekly, possibly daily, to do something just for me. Paint my toenails, call a friend, sit in the sun… I'm nothing thinking expensive things... just time to myself. Even a walk (which will work with #3) or sitting on the porch alone.

3.) Exercise for 30 minutes every day. I do exercise most days. But I want to schedule it, just like above, and make it a priority. My stress levels will thank me, as will my doctors!

4.) Remind myself “there is no time like the present.” I’m guilty of pushing things off to later. Whether it’s to attend a show, or learn something new. This last year has shown me that you never know what is going to happen. Do it now!
