Just One Thing.

The past couple of years I’ve shared my yearly goals/resolutions here.

However this year, come January 1st I didn’t write anything down. I didn’t give myself any goals, any markers to reach by December, anything at all.

I mean, I’ve set up a reading goal on Goodreads but even then I won’t be disappointed if I don’t reach it after the epic year of reading I had last year (50 books, I still can’t believe I did it). But that’s the only goal I’ve actually set.

Instead, I’ve decided this year that instead of goals and objectives and things to cross off lists I’m just going to do one thing:

Be a good person. 

I’ve posted about my struggles with our infertility problems and how it’s made me feel dark and twisty sometimes (credit to Shonda Rimes for this description, ha) . And I’m not going to suppress those feelings but I’m also not going to make them stop me from being a good person.

I’m going to strive to help friends in need, send emails to family and friends just because I’m thinking of them, spend more time with my brother before he heads to college and revel in other people’s happy news.

2014 is going to be my year of goodness. No matter what happens.


What’s 2014 going to be for you? Do you have any goals or resolutions?



happy thursday!
