Don't do Resolutions! Do Normalizations!
I mean, come on. At my age I am not going to change that much.
So I could go through the whole New Year's Resolution thing, then hang my head in shame... like later today when I eat that cookie.
Or I thought I could do a New Year's Normalization! How about I stop worrying about improving and try to just keep myself above water?
Let's take "be a better person." This year, this year I just want to not be a worse person. Don't get grumpier. Don't get pissed off at the current generation (any more than I do now). Try to not develop road rage.
Those are lofty goals too, right?
This year another 'Normalization' is to only break one bone this year. Yes, I know a silly thing to have to say but since I broke two last year, I figure just 1 this year is getting me closer to that golden 'no bones broken' normal goal.
In terms of eating. Sure I could give up sugar or molasses or lasagna, but we all know how that goes (now for Lent, that is a totally different story).
So my 'normalization' for this year is to NOT find a new food I just can't live without. Because let's face it. If I add another 'favorite' food to my already exceptionally long list of favs, I will never get out of Costco (cuz if you are going to buy a fav food, buy it in BULK - wait I might want to make a 'normalization' around that too #nah)!
Yes, this year I resolve to not slip further down the slippery slope of... everything.
Will you join me in this new movement to 'normalization?' #hehehe #Isaidmovement #darn #alreadybeingsillierthanlastyear
