New Resolutions

Like most of the population, I make resolutions every year. And like most of the people who make resolutions, I fail to keep them after a couple months. This year I have decided to do it a bit different. Instead of choosing a resolution I could easily fail at I decided to choose something that could not be failed.

My resolutions are to just make my life happier and more fulfilling. I have spent a majority of my life doing for others and putting everyone above myself. But with my post partem depression I decided to be selfish. I want to take better care of myself and make myself a priority.

I’m the type of person who will volunteer first to help out someone in need. I’ve always been that way. But over the years I have noticed that it’s no longer a choice but an expectation to bend over backwards for everyone else. Lately it’s been if I don’t volunteer and neither do any of my other family members, I am seen as the bad guy because I should help out whenever I can. My family including my husband have started taking advantage of me. So this year I am choosing to say no when my help is not necessary. It may sound harsh, but I think right now it needs to be done.

More with my resolution for making myself a priority, I am going to challenge myself to try new things and get out of my wonderful comfortable bubble that I have formed around myself. I want to live a more fulfilling life by taking chances and just living life instead watching it pass me by. I’m 25 and feel the only accomplishments I have in life are my 3 wonderful children. No more watching my life pass by. I am going to be adventurous and show my children there is more to life than just our small town we live in.

I think this is going to be the best and most exciting year yet. I’m looking forward to new changes and many adventures. Anyone with great ideas of new opportunities are welcome to share their stories. Happy New Year!!!

  1. With three children they are your priority, not running round after everyone else, time to do things you enjoy is precious. Bringing three children into the world is a great accomplishment in itself and you have plenty of time in the future to do other things, lots of people your age have hardly started their lives.

  2. Good luck, and best to learn to say no when you’re young, as you are. Otherwise, you can’t take care of yourself. I’m trying to do little things to add up to big resolutions–less junk food (but not a junk food ban); a walk (not necessarily a jog), etc. Happy 2019!
