I'm late for a very important date
My practical New Year's resolution this year is two-fold: to give up the snooze button, and to be on time.
I hate being early for things. Something about the way I'm hard-wired makes me think that being early is a waste of time. Why get somewhere 10 minutes early, when I could have spent that ten minutes fixing my hair, talking on the phone, or grabbing a coffee? At the same time, I despise being late, which is how I typically operate. I'm late, I'm grouchy, Bradley is slow, and I am stressed. My habitual tardiness makes me 10 minutes late for choir, or 15 minutes late to work, and it's become a habit I am none too pleased with. So I am trying to change that mentality and be more proactive about getting up earlier and leaving earlier so that I'm not constantly in a rush, and allow myself to relax and enjoy the 10 "extra" minutes I might have by arriving to my destination with time to spare.
So hello 2013, and goodbye snooze.
Since we are a good ways into the month now, I will admit that old habits die hard, but there has been a vast improvement, and I am headed in the right direction. What are your resolutions, and are you keeping them?
