So - I'm making a new year's resolution. It's just one, although it's sort of all-encompassing:
Just that - I'm going to be nicer. To my family, my husband, my friends, myself, strangers on the street, people I just meet, people I work with, people I don't like - I'm going to be nice.
It's not that I'm currently mean, I don't think. But I don't think I'm as nice as I could be. Sometimes I have some stereotypical female cattiness. Sometimes I pick fights about things I don't care about, just because I feel like arguing. Sometimes
And so, generally, I'm going to try to be nicer. I'll make an effort to smile more and argue less; to be nice to everyone at work; to nag at Jonathan less; to not be smug towards my mom; to talk less negatively about people; to stop beating myself up and dwelling on my failures.
And it will be a good year. Not to be all Yanni-touchy-feely, but I think there's something true about negative or positive energy surrounding you - so I think making an effort to be nice will definitely feel different in terms of my surrounding energy.
That's my resolution. Did you guys make any?
(Also - Merry belated Christmas! I'll blog about Aruba [which was fab!] later this week.)
