This is what I wrote last year:
I need to be:
more helpful to my mom
less resentful of unkind things done to me or my loved ones
less concerned with what other people think
I will be:
sweeter to my husband
more supportive of anyone who needs it
The most important thing, I am going to focus on learning how to say no. I don't want to be mean, but I need to make sure that I focus on the needs of my family and myself, before everyone else. This is going to be the hardest, I never say no.
How did I do?
I feel like I was happier.
I definitely helped my mom more, even though I caused her some anguish also...
I worked on my patience, don't know how well I did, but at least I tried!
I was more frugal than normal, just not as frugal as I should be.
I definitely got better at not worrying what people think!
I am way more organized, now some people who are uber-organized may not think so, but for me and my life, this is a huge difference!
I think I was sweeter to my husband, but I guess he is the judge of that.
I was very supportive, when I knew support was needed.
I tried to be kinder, and that is all I needed. If I was a little bit kinder, that is better than nothing!
I think I did well with focusing on my family. I still feel like I said yes way too much to other things, but I did also say no way more often.
Now for this year:
A better mother to my kids
More understanding with Chloe
More patient with Andy
I will let Buffy help me more
I will continue to adore Cooper, even though he won't be my baby anymore!
I will not nag Jon as much
We will continue our scripture study and prayers
We will continue our regular family home evenings
We will continue to not break the Sabbath.
I will be more motivated in whatever calling I am given.
I will count my blessings daily!
We will continue on keeping our house together.
I will love my kids for who they are, faults and all!
Wish me luck!
