I’m not real big on making New Year’s resolutions any more but for those who are still searching for something to resolve in the new year, I took the liberty of putting this little short list together for you. Feel free to add on.
When there is a gorgeous handbag that I want need, I will buy it and not feel guilty.
I will take the credit and not just chalk it up to luck or team work.
I will not sit quietly in a meeting when I know I have a better idea.
I will erase the phrase “I’ll just do it myself” from my vocabulary.
When I come home from work, I will resist the urge to go into a cleaning frenzy. The clothes stay on the floor. So. There.
I will outsource all non-value added activities like housework.
I will stop waiting to lose 10, 20 or a gazillion pounds before I invest in my personal appearance.
I will stop trying to stop swearing. It just doesn’t f^&*$g work.
I will (every now and then) behave badly just to remind myself that well-behaved women rarely make history.
I will remember to be grateful every day.
I will live my life with passion and purpose.
I’ll do it anyway, even if I feel afraid or think it will make me unpopular.
I’ll remember that at the end of the day, no one ever wished they spent more time at the office.
