Every new year, I make resolutions - promises to myself to be a better person. By the end of January I have usually completely forgotten what they are, but come December, it seems like a great idea again to come up with a new set. This year will be no different I am sure, but the main promise I want to make is to give my son more distraction free time.
2012 has been an amazing year. Like everyone, I have had my ups and downs, but I entered the year with a gorgeous, dependant and smiley little baby, and am leaving it with an inquisitive, giggly, energetic and happy toddler. 2012 has seen me start a blog and work very hard at it, return to work part time and fall pregnant with Squish. 2012 has seen me turn 25, bake my first cake and move into our new house.
|My number 1 priority|
My mobile phone is never out of reach, and I rarely turn the laptop off. There is always a little icon popping up on the top left hand screen on my phone to let me know that I have a new email, or a tweet or that someone has liked a post on Instagram and I am guilty of giving in to the temptation to check the notifications almost as soon as they pop up. My new years resolution this year is to spend a little time every day with my phone either switched off or in another room. I want to take away the temptation to check on the outside world and just sit and play a bit more.
I am not going to set myself a time goal or anything more structured, just a promise to make more of an effort to ignore technology and show my gorgeous little boy that he is my priority.
I have also found a fabulous idea which I intend to try this year-
A '2013 Jar'
I will fill the jar with happy memories from the year, big and small. Special days, moments, feelings and objects that make us smile, written down on pieces of paper and popped in the jar. At the end of 2013, I can look back and remember how I felt, what we have been up to and leave 2013 behind on a positive note.
Do you make new years resolutions or have a great idea of how to keep 2013 on track?
