I have not made any New Year’s resolutions. 20140805-084253-31373930.jpg

Guilty? Well, not in one tiny bit – not even a tinge.

Like this post, it’s been sitting in draft for weeks!  I know, I know some of you are actually thinking “Time Management” SHOULD be on my top list of New Year’s resolutions.

Hmmm…

Candidly speaking after spending a short NY’s break from work – I don’t know how to snap out of feeling lazy.  But I seriously need to come out of it soon and catch up with my posts.  Arrgghh, would somebody out there “un-lazy” this momma?

Sigh.

I’m so feeling out of sorts that I totally forgo the idea of NY’s resolutions.  Thinking, why bother this year?  I’m tired of my failed New Year’s resolutions for years!  I didn’t lose weight, I’m not as organized as I wish to be, and on and on.

So, I’ve decided to try some achievable resolutions this year.

1.  Don’t buy impractical shoes.
To those of you who know me well, would agree I probably have the most number of impractical shoes in my collection.  No more impulse purchases.  Save money and look cute on a pair of practical shoes.

2. No more Zombie-walk
I promise, when I walk to places, no more staring at, reading or even listening on my phone. Promise.

3. Nurture something. A plant or even a pet fish.
I don’t have the greenest of thumb. Unlike my mom, she’s like the plants’ fairy or something – I’m not.  Once someone gave me a cactus to tend – thinking it will be easier for me to care (less watering needed). Yet, I managed to “kill” it in a short span of 3 months!  But this year, I’m very ambitious and I’ll try to have some greens around my place.

4. I will start to develop a good relationship with my body
Instead of jumping-in on new diet fads this year.  I will start to love my body instead.  I’ve tried and failed in countless diet

5. I will not bore my daughters with my constant text nagging
I can be quite a nag when it comes to my girls.  Since they live with my parents, I constantly barrage them with text messages of reminders, and etc.  This year, I promise to text less. Call more.

There goes my short easy list this year.  After all, life is hard enough as it is.  And to be honest, I don’t want to stress myself out with impossible NY’s resolution list.

As the late great Joan Rivers once said, “Life is very tough. If you don’t laugh, it’s tough.”
