New Year's Resolutions 2015

i normally don't write down my resolutions, but my memory is not what it used to be.  And if I put it out there, it makes it a little more real and even if others don't hold me accountable, I know (or at last believe) I will hold myself a bit more accountable.

I will make this a little easier in myself and classify them by easy and wishful thinking.

So from easy to most difficult:

Think before I speak - this is a big one.  When you are writing emails, you can delete before sending, you can edit.  I have a tendency to blurt out ideas, thoughts, etc.  Sometimes this works, but I will be more organized in my delivery and also will not talk over people.

Be more patient with people - I have become a little mean to people, potentially due to the above, and it makes me unhappy with myself because I know that is not really me.  I just need to take a breath and wait a beat.

This one is from this year and I am continuing it  - Try my best to not eat mediocre food.  There is no reason to subject yourself to food that is just ok intentionally.  It does not need to be fancy, just good.  It helps to have a son who cooks with this one!

And now for the harder stuff.

Don't make excuses - I have been working on this one for many years and it still needs refinement. There is a fine line between explaing and understanding what went a wry and making excuses as to why something did not work. 

Study French for 10 minutes a day

Write more often whether it is for myself, for Chariot or for TechGirlz.  This is the hardest one for me. I dislike writing, but I have alot of thoughts in my head.
