A lot of people are posting about New Year's Resolutions, goals, what they are going to do this year to introduce broad, sweeping change into their lives.
Mine's not quite that dramatic. My goal is this: Do a little bit more.
Nothing set in stone. No requirements, no quotas, no charts. Just...do a little bit more. In everything. Spend a few minutes more cleaning my house every day. Spend a few minutes more planning and making meals. Spend a few minutes more exercising. Be a little bit more aware of what I'm putting into my body. Be a little bit kinder and more willing to reach out to those around me. Be a little bit better when it comes to documenting my kids' milestones. Spend a little bit more time outside, a little bit more time away from the internet and this worn-out keyboard. Spend a little bit more in quiet, reflective silence that doesn't involve music or screens. Slip a little bit more tongue in when kissing my husband.
HA HA YOU DIDN'T SEE THAT ONE COMING, DID YOU, INTERNETS?
Ahem. Maybe also be a little bit more mature.
But only a little bit. Because a little bit here and there isn't so very hard to succeed at, and doesn't give me anything to beat myself up over if I don't quite manage it today. Because there's always room for a little bit more tomorrow, too.
