I am the queen. The queen of good intentions.
I want to be a better mom, better wife, better friend, better texter-backer, better healthy eater, better better BETTER!
And every year at the end of the year…after I have been the best sugar-eater in the world, I feel like it’s time for a fresh start.
I feel the pressure from all the other people I see around me who seemingly have it all together, and I feel like I have to change…
And it’s all so. so…vague. Like. Be a better mom? What does that even mean?
Be a better wife? How, exactly?
So I try. To be better at all of it.
And sometimes it works really well for a few weeks, maybe a month, maybe two.
But the reality is, life be cray cray.
And life doesn’t go the way I plan the majority of the time.
So when the schedule gets wonky, and my life gets crazy, I get deflated and give up.
Then I feel even worse than when I started.
I just can’t do this whole new year’s resolution thing!
I mean, I get it. I really do.
January is a chance for a fresh start.
A new year, with new dreams and new plans.
And I’m not against it.
I just think it’s too…long of a commitment.
A whole, entire year?!
I just don’t think I can commit to that.
I need something smaller.
Something more reasonable.
I figure one month is doable to me.
I can do one month.
I can commit to 31 days of taking something out of my diet, or changing something I say, or reading my Bible more.
So one month is what I’m doing.
February? I will make a commitment for February when February comes.
But today, I’m making a commitment for January.
Small, baby steps that get me to where I want to go.

We can’t do everything, but we can do one thing.
So let’s do one thing.
Let’s do one month.
