Resolutions for 2016: The Year of Intention

Don't even get me started on all the anti-resolution sentiments that seemed to populate social media last year.  Half my friends were coming up with New Year's Resolutions (like is done), and the other half were spouting hipster anti-resolution sentiments, but making sure they took the time to post them like 10x a day.  Because obviously it's way cooler to constantly talk about how you aren't resolving to better yourself in any way, than to actually make a resolution, however unlikely you are to follow through with it.

WHATEVER.  Those people suck.

This year people seem more, erm, resolute? Hardy har har. It's probably because we are getting so old now.  We have finally embraced the concept of bettering ourselves.



I have no problem making New Year's Resolutions.  I happen have a number of things I want to accomplish in 2016.  I will list them below for accountability.

1.  Eating out no more than once per week
2.  Sticking to a cash budget like we have in the past
3.  Running one road race per month
4.  Doing one sudoku puzzle per week
5.  Reading one book per month
6.  Being more intentional in everything I do

My "word" of the year is going to be "INTENTION." I want to do everything with more actual intention, rather than just coasting by or going with the flow.

Good luck, self.
