I’m not even going to fake like I’m trying to make some changes this year.
Nope. Not gonna do it.
Not going to try to eat more fish.
Not going to try to floss more. Okay, start flossing.
Not going to do an Ironman/Tough Mudder/Warrior Dash.
Not going to eat right/better/less/clean/only red foods.
What I will do, though, is continue to not let things get to me. In December, I talked about trying to make the winter holiday memorable. I wanted to take each activity or experience for what it was. I didn’t want to get caught up in the cogs of the machine that is parties and presents and go, go, go! Some things got done. Some things didn’t. The activities that boiled and bubbled up around us didn’t spill over and overwhelm us. The world kept spinning.
Suddenly, I’ve turned into Elsa from Frozen. Everything that usually gets my knickers in a knot became a non-issue.
I thoroughly and completely Let It Go.
And it was awesome.
By consciously deciding to do only what I could and not worry about the rest, I can honestly say I’ve had one of the more enjoyable holiday seasons I’ve had in a long time. That being said, I really want to keep that good thing going. And maybe making a resolution to not make a resolution is still in fact a resolution, but I’m not going to let that worry much. I’m not going to let that worry me at all.
I see you 2015, and I think we’re going to get along just fine.
