Resolutions and Intentions

Screw resolutions.

I never make them for January first, because I always feel like it then becomes a race to the breaking- see how long we can last before we fail.

Screw resolutions- I had a spoonful of Nutella and Irish Cream in my coffee in protest of resolutions this morning. (The spoonful of Nutella was independent of the coffee, natch).

However, with change in the air, I have been tossing around resolutions for a couple of days. I resolve to run more. I resolve to be more present. I resolve to work on myself and my loved ones. I resolve to drink less wine so that I can run better. I resolve to write more. I resolve blaablaablaa. I resolve to not make resolutions and to just live my life.

After a couple of days of trying out the fit of resolutions on my shoulders, I finally came up with one that works for me.

I resolve to live intentionally each day. THAT, cupcakes, is my resolution. I resolve to be in the moment as much as possible, to live each moment, not through facebooking it or instagramming it or tweeting but instead truly being in it.

Because isn't that something we should resolve to do every morning that our feet hit the floor?

Happy 2013, loveys. I hope it is full of intention and love and rainbow sprinkles.

  1. We don't do resolutions, either. However, cleaning the house after the holidays often brings to light changes that need making. So we're making some changes. We're going to eat at the kitchen table and not in front of the TV. That's what the table is for, after all. We're going to remember to take better care of each other instead of taking care of ourselves because that's what partnership is about. And we're going to buy all the freakin' Skylanders dudes because they are ridiculously cute.

    Happy 2013 to you!
