Marlene’s New Year’s Resolutions
Happy New Year. Here’s to all those New Year’s resolutions I used to make and, in most cases, break before January was even over.
It was the same thing every year. That’s why I stopped making resolutions. And that’s probably a good thing.
Who needs all that pressure? Turns out…I do. I need all that pressure. Or at least I need something. Something to get me motivated, so then at the end of the year I don’t wonder, “So…what did I actually accomplish this year?”. Wow. Did I accomplish anything this past year?? Well, I did try surfing (OK, it was only one lesson), but now I’m determined to try again next summer. And I did get to NYC with my kids (yes, it was only one day), but I want to make it back next year over the holidays. And I wanted to start writing, which I have managed to do. True, I have to do it for work, but I love to write, so that’s an easy one.
Other things…not so easy. And the biggest one would be getting organized. I believe that deep down I’m an organized person. But on the outside I’m just a hot mess. Every year I say I’m gonna get organized, and every year I simply don’t. But this year’s gonna be different. And why is that, you ask? Because I waste way too much time looking for stuff on a regular basis. I can barely find anything anymore. And I hate wasting time. So, I’m really gonna get organized this year. I figure if I do, then I’ll have more free time. And more free time means I’ll have more time to play on Facebook. Great!
Alright, maybe getting my scattered self organized is not such a good thing after all.
