A Life In Progress

Resolution January 2, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — jdalsin @ 3:00 am

With the new year comes a new set of resolutions.  Every year I pick a few things that I’d like to work on over the year.  The list usually includes things like stop biting my nails, exercise more and eat more veggies.  I obviously never succeed because year after year my resolutions are the same.

 A few weeks ago my husband and I were driving down the highway when I asked him “Do you ever feel like you know the person you want to become but just don’t know how to get to be that way?”  That’s how I feel.  I feel like I know the person I want to be but never put in the effort to get there.  I don’t feel it’s for lack of desire, so why don’ t I ever work at it.

 This has become my New Years resolution.  Not a list of one or two bad habits I’d like to break, but rather a lifestyle change.  I want to get healthy, inside and out.  This includes exercise, a diet makeover that will include more whole and organic foods, a weight loss plan, spending more time working on my spiritual self, taking time to be me, not just a wife or a mother.  I want to do more to make the space around me clean and pure, including expanding from just recycling to reducing and reusing.  Ensuring that things that enter our home aren’t a danger to our health.  Making our home feel light in spirit.

 I feel very motivated and optimistic about the changes our family is going to make this year.  I have the support and encouragement of my husband, which is going to make things go even more smoothly.  And now I have this website to keep me accountable, to update on my progress in all the mentioned areas and to let you all get a peek into this life, my life.  A life in progress.
