Resolutions vs. Goals vs. Just Simply Getting One's Poop in a Pile

Which is what my good friend, BCPE (Booster Club President Extraordinaire) calls it; I prefer, "getting one's shit together", but, that's why she's a better person than I am. Also, using less profanity will clearly never feature on one of my lists of resolutions/goals/poop gathering missions, etc.

So, what does feature on that list?

Honestly, I'm having a hard time verbalizing what I hope to accomplish/change/improve, etc., in this new year. I don't think "Be more happy" is a very realistic goal; I mean, what would that even look like? It's not like I can simply break that down into a SMART goal (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound, thankyouverymuch, Day Job).

Although, "be more happy" is certainly the direction I want to go in.

So, this is the best that I can do this year: I resolve to be the very best version of myself that I can be. I will practice kindness and compassion. I will do my best to take care of my body, my mind, and my soul. I will not let fear dictate my decisions. I will cherish my family and friends. I will be grateful for my blessings.

And, if I'm successful at all that; happiness will surely follow.

And, my poop will be in some sort of order, if not necessarily in a perfect little pile.
