Not The Usual Resolutions

So, as 2017 is rapidly approaching, I’m thinking of all the typical resolutions that most of us make but few of us keep. Losing weight, exercising, etceteros, etceteros (which, I learned recently, is a rare form of etc., aka etcetera). Perhaps I should add learning rare forms of everyday language to my 2017 agenda? 

As I was saying…these typical resolutions that we say we are committing to are really just self sabotaging empty promises that leave us feeling like crap. Which is why I rarely make a resolution, or at least I don’t make one out loud. I always have them running rampant through my mind and they always start out with, “This year imma dot dot dot.” I never use proper grammar in my head, it’s a thing. Whatever.

I would rather set up resolutions like bucket list type items, things I’d like to do and if I get around to them, great! If I don’t, oh well, there’s always next year. I am a mess. I have very little expectation so I’m not disappointed. 

Here is my resolution-ary bucket list for 2017…

Ahem, “This year imma dot dot dot.”

  • Try new recipes, more often
  • Create things
  • Blog more
  • Redo a piece of furniture that I get for free or cheap and resell
  • Work on convincing arguments to why my husband should turn his shed over to me so I can have a she-shed
  • Write more poetry (this is such a lost art to me)
  • Get rich (why not? If I succeed, great, right?)
  • Make a difference in someone’s life
  • Do something completely different that requires a risk (a small risk, but risk all the same)
  • Do YouTube videos on something…I have ideas! 

There are many, MANY more…but this is a good start.

What are your plans for 2017?
