New Year Resolutions

Ahhh yes, the infamous "New Year Resolution" blog post. But this year it is different than before. Each passing year provides new perspectives. Thankfully, right? There are so many resolution lists going around and each about a page long...lose weight, improve your diet, hit the gym consistently, you know...the cliché lists...that really, if we're being honest, aren't very practical.

I want 2014 to be the year of the practical resolution.

I know, I know, "practical" sounds boring. Don't we want a life of adventure? Yes, but that is not what I'm talking about here. I am talking about improving ourselves each year. Finding ways to make ourselves better and in-turn creating a legacy for those who will follow us.


Have you ever taken the time to figure out what legacy you want to leave? A very long time ago, on my old blog, I wrote about the "dash story," you can read it here. What do you want your dash to be?

You tell me your resolution is to lose 10 pounds in 2014....what legacy will you leave? You want people to remember you as skinny? Don't get me wrong, a healthy weight is very important to our daily well-being but I encourage you...stretch yourselves in 2014. Think about your legacy. Think about your dash.

Maybe your resolution is to get your finances in order — or eliminate debt because you want your children to have successful and financially sound parents so they have a healthy view of money.

Or maybe you want to resolve to follow your true passion. I once read that the thing you do while procrastinating is maybe the thing that you should actually be doing. What do you do in your free time for pleasure? Maybe that small side project should be something bigger — start a small business! Show your kids that passions matter.

Or maybe...You fill in the blank: ___________________________________________.

Whatever your practical resolution is for 2014, I encourage you to share it with others. Keep yourself accountable.

For 2014 I am going through the Storyline program and putting myself on a strict schedule to keep track of my time. My goal is to create my life plan and create clarity. I want 2014 to be the year that I take my focus off all the life chaos and hone in on my blog work. 2014 will be the year that I keep a strict schedule that allows me to get the most out of each and every day.

Okay folks, there are only 15 days left until the New Year. What is your practical resolution? Share below, I'd love to hear what your plans are for 2014!
