As the new year begins, so does the quest for the perfect New Year's resolution. This year I'm not going to make the typical resolution.
I already that I'm not the fastest, the strongest, the smartest, or the prettiest, but maybe that's okay for once. I want to focus on all the things that I know I already am. I'm a good friend. I'm a good wife. I'm a hard worker. How about this year, my resolution focuses more on what I am and less on what I am not. I'm going to focus on the fact that when I workout I feel strong, not focus on the fact that I could always lose a few pounds. I'm going to focus more on the fact that I make a good contribution at work and that my co-workers enjoy working with me instead of worrying about a promotion. I'm going to remember the fact that my girlfriend's banded together and buy me a gift card for some takeout and a date night when times are hard and I'm sick because my immune system isn't the strongest because they think I'm a great friend too. I'm going to remember all the things that my husband does for me because he loves me because he dotes on me, because he is my partner in life.
As women we have a tendency to doubt ourselves, to berate ourselves, and to overall just make ourselves feel like we're never going to be good enough. So this year my resolution is to have an anti-resolution. I am pretty damn awesome just the way I am. I hope that you can remember this yourselves and set your own anti-resolution!
