Instead of doing specific resolutions for 2018, I’m just trying to make each aspect of my life a little better.
Here’s what I’ve done so far:
A Better 2018: Stop Hoarding the Good Stuff
A Better 2018: Unfollow the Hate Reads
For this month, I’m going with: Make More Friend Plans
I’m busy. I work full time. I’m in a master’s program. I have a 6-year-old son. I have a husband. I’ve got a mentally unstable dog. There’s a fish in there somewhere. I have parents and siblings that I like to see on a regular basis. I’m busy. But here’s the thing… we are ALL busy.
It gets so easy to just bury myself in my daily and weekly tasks. Sometimes I feel like I’m just barely treading along to get everything done before the next day starts and I have to do it all over again. And again. And again.
So, it’s extra important for me to make sure I have some plans with friends on my calendar to look forward to. Sure, sometimes I have to plan the friend date weeks or months in advance… but I love having girlfriend time to look forward to. It’s like a little vacation from life to get out and have dinner with one of my girlfriends. To catch up. To eat yummy food and drink a fancy cocktail.
I NEED it to stay sane.
I NEED it so I don’t just stay buried in my little world and become even more of an introvert.
So for 2018 (and forever), my plan is to make more friend plans and I think you should do it too!
