New Years Resolutions

Every year I sit down to write New Years Resolutions. I'm pretty mainstream with my list: lose weight, save money, try not to be grumpy etc etc. This year as I sat down I thought, "What does resolution actually mean"?

 Enter google....

  1. 1.
    a firm decision to do or not to do something.

    "she kept her resolution not to see Anne any more"

    synonyms:intentionresolvedecisionintentaimaspirationdesignpurposeobjectplan;More
  2. 2.
    the quality of being determined or resolute.

    "he handled the last British actions of the war with resolution"

    synonyms:determinationpurpose, purposefulness, resolve, resoluteness, single-mindedness, strength of will, strength of character, will power, firmness, firmness of purpose, fixity of purpose, intentness, decision, decidedness; More


I love those 2nd definition synonyms. 

PURPOSE

Lee and I have just decided what our end goal is for life (other than the obvious of eventually dying). We have a plan. We have a dream. We have a purpose. Without even trying, I've found my New Years Resolution of 2019.

This year we're running towards our dream. I'm telling myself daily to practise hard work and discipline, because those are two characteristics that I'm really going to need in this journey. We're regularly discussing the big dream, even though we're just on step one, so that we remember what we're doing this for and all that we're wanting to achieve. 

I'm so excited, and also really nervous, for all that 2019 is going to bring, and all that we're going to make it. I feel like as a family we're standing on a precipice (last year's resolution was to use better vocab!) and we're just about to jump! 

Bring it on '19, bring it on!

Okay, I've also added 'keep house plants alive' to my list....
