There are Resolutions and then there is Reality

I wrote briefly about New Year Resolutions for the Weekly Challenge and stated the usual aspirations to spend time with my children, eat healthily and  . . . oh some other such promise to the world that I will no doubt fail to keep. After all, I made the same promises last year and no doubt the year before that. My never ending quest to be thinner has been chronicled in various posts about diets, the mandatory guilt I feel as a parent has been referenced in my promises to be a better mother, I even went so far as to make some September Resolutions.

But let’s face it, we all make resolutions at New Year and we rarely actually keep them. After all, if we did we would end up as perfect human beings by the time we hit fifty. And who wants perfection – it’s so boring, darling.

However, what I am going to make is a monthly To Do list (haha, we will see how long this one lasts) of realistic aims that I want to accomplish. Now – what to call this? We need a catchy title here that will spur me on?

The “Get off your backside and finish something” List

 

Hmm- the name can come later. Suggestions welcome.

 

So – here are Januarys aims

1. Pick the photos from the wedding to go in the album – it was in March for goodness sake

2. Select photos of family and holidays to go in the numerous empty frames on the wall – the house looks freaky!

3. Complete the scrap book from the wedding so that the box can get put away

4. Do the next module in the course! There is a weekly reminder on your phone, read it!

 

I think that’s enough for one month – don’t you?

 

So, do you agree? A To Do list is much more realistic than a Resolution and may actually get finished? Who wants to join me? If you had to make a list of things to finish this month, what would it be?

There are Resolutions and then there is Reality — 7 Comments

  1. I have good intentions, but unless there is a pressing deadline, my procrastination is legendary. I scanned old photos from my mother’s albums recently, and that was a good thing, but I have one little bag of photos left, and I can’t for the life of me seem to find the time to do them. … I do like your idea of a list for the month. Picking a few things for each month isn’t so overwhelming. I’m with Dianne – Get Off Your Backside and Finish Something is pretty motivating. 😉
