New Year's Resolution

It's that time of year again where everyone makes their New Year's Resolution of weight loss, kindness, and quitting those bad habits!

GUILTY blogger alert- I AM going to be one of those people. Let's break down my New Year's Resolutions.

1. Get healthy:

I don't want to just lose weight, I want to have a healthier life style. 

What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger right.

2. Be a better Aunt:

As I talked about (HERE) I am an Aunt to the 3 most adorable kids IN THE WORLD (alright I might be biased, sue me). Living 10 hours away from them makes it incredibly hard to stay in count and I take full advantage of the time I have with them when I am home, but I need to try harder when I'm not. It kills me that I can't have a super close relationship with them so I vow to do more skype dates, packages sent to them, and phone calls this year. 

For your viewing pleasure. The worlds cutest kids.

3. Drive:

Not drive in the car related way, but I want to have more drive. I want to give finding a job in my field my full attention, working harder at my current job, and when I start school later this year I want to give it my all.

4. I want to live a little bit:

This is oddly something I've struggled with since moving to Kentucky. I think I've fallen into the routine of working, applying to jobs, and cleaning this house that I haven't left time for fun. I just came off one of the best summers of my life living in Detroit. Josh and I were busy every weekend this summer and I want to get back to that. I don't care that it is winter I need a hobby or I'm going to go nuts.

This is in Kentucky somewhere! I want to find it!

5. Blogging more + Quality:

I have invested my time into this blog and have been rewarded in various ways because of that. It is time to give back a little more quality. I want to share more of my own ideas with year. Do more DIY projects, join more linkups, and just start having a little more fun with my blog. I am going to scout out someone to really make my blog look pretty soon. I attempted to make a button one day and failed (guys I'm not tech savvy, HELP!) 

6. Complain Less:

This is my final, but more important resolution for this year. I know it is cliche! Let's be serious for a second we won't live forever so why be miserable all the time. I am an avid complainer and will never lie about that fact. It is time to really stop and think before I let the negativity come out all the time. This one is also for my boyfriends sake (I'm sure he will appreciate this one!)

I know this is a pretty heavy list. I don't care though, because these are changes I need to make for myself. 
What are your New Year's Resolutions?

  1. I think getting healthy is a great goal to have. Like you said, it shouldn't be just about losing weight. I think that in the long run if you choose a healthy lifestyle over a "diet" or something like that, you'll be happier and it will be more maintainable... at least that's what I've experienced anyway! :)

    1. Exactly! I have tried to diet in the past it just doesn't work for me. I don't want to feel trapped into it this time, I want to want to get healthy.

  5. These are great resolutions, Angi! I think one I can really relate to is having more drive. I'm in a job that I like now, but I don't see it lasting forever. I want to give it a little more effort and see how it goes. I know I'm not putting in 100% -- and that is going to change in 2014!
    Happy New Year!!

  7. Getting healthy versus losing weight is a great goal. I am all for living a bit. I tend to get crazy busy with the day to day stuff then i forget to include fun in the mix too. For a Blog Button Venus Trapped In Mars has a great tutorial from her Saturday Sessions I would check that out.

  8. Angi, I share many of the same resolutions as you for the new year...I just love a blank calendar, so many possibilities. I wanted to thank you again for the Sunshine nod. The holidays seemed to railroad right over me and I never did half the things I was supposed to do! Yesterday, I finally posted a proper thank you for your sweet recognition. I hope you have a lovely evening with Joshua and find some of that fun you are resolving to have tonight! :) Happy New Year, Kim
