New Year’s Resolutions
Happy New Year!! I hope that each of you had a wonderful holiday season. Here at casa de Twimom, we enjoyed the time off, even though both kidlets were sick at different times. They both enjoyed their gifts and were mostly good the entire time.
I am excited because I received several Amazon Gift Cards for Christmas, and I used them to buy a new Kindle Paperwhite. I just got it Thursday, and I spent over 2 hours organizing my books and collections. I already LOVE it! What about you… what was your favorite holiday gift?
Anyhow, so January 1, 2013 is upon us, and I thought I would take time to talk a little about New Year’s Resolutions… I don’t make them… I will continue to try and eat healthy and lose that “extra weight,” but I’m not going to “make a resolution” to do so. I find the promise to “start fresh” or make lists to “be better” false when I know that I will end up failing at some point during the year. It’s not that I can’t commit to a pledge or promise to do something specific during the year. But let’s face it… New Year’s Resolutions are a big set up for failure, so why put that kind of pressure on myself?! Instead, I plan to do my best and be positive.
With that said, I have made a couple of reading resolutions for 2013. First, my reading goal for 2013 is to finish 75 books. Second, I want to continue to experience new-to-me authors, so I’m challenging myself to read at least 15 books by new-to-me authors. These goals (resolutions) are not only achievable, but will enhance my reading and blogging experiences.
What about you? Do you have any New Year’s Resolutions? How about Reading Resolutions and/or Challenges?
Happy New Year to all!
