I have some big goals in mind for this year, but I really don't want to think about them or share them.I prefer to instead just do them for a change. I find when I share my lofty dreams some people are less than supportive; not that they are evil or anything but they manage to plant doubts in my head and take away my excitement. So, while I still have that list of things I know I must accomplish to truly be me, I will only share my smaller, yet important, resolutions for 2013:
1. Wear lipstick when I leave the house. Looking good when I go out hasn't mattered to me in years. Maybe because I didn't have the time or maybe because I figured it was a lost cause at my age. I recently remembered how fun it was to spend just a bit of time on getting ready, like I did back in my high school days -- and how it was nice to turn the occasional head. I'm not going to look model-perfect to run out to Walmart, but I do think it'll be good for me to not look like a homeless person -- which I promise you I sometimes do in my sweats, untouched hair and makeup-less face.
2. Stop swearing. I love swearing. I like being bad. I like shocking people. I like letting out my anger in a relatively safe way...but I've gotten carried away in the bad-word department. If you curse too often, it loses its effect. So I'm going to just say them in my head.
3. Eat breakfast. I don't even care if it's healthy. My mood, and therefore the whole family's mood, is much better when I'm fed. So I'll develop this behavior with whatever food I feel like, and maybe, one day, focus on good choices. Maybe.
