I realized yesterday that I already have a head start on the taking care of me resolution. I get my hair done.
Aha, Nikki there ya go. I've been getting my hair trimmed and colored for over a year now, and I absolutely love it and can't wait to go to my next appointment. I'm not struggling to remember to do it, or struggling to want to do it. I look forward to it! And in December, instead of saying "Ok Jo, whatever colors you feel today, go for it" to my hair stylist, I chose to go red. Which was a bold, new statement for someone who use to go once if that a year to get a trim and have only had it colored once before. As well as someone who rarely chooses the colors herself. HUGE step and I did it without really noticing what that meant.
My thoughts are, if I pick something that compliments my rad new hair, that I love and am obsessed with keeping, maybe that will make it easier to stick to. And easier to slowly build up a routine of sorts.
When it hit me yesterday that I was enjoying this particular treatment, I realized I haven't been actively trying to keep up with my other resolutions. I honestly have forgotten them, what with all the sickness and what not going on around here; it's kept me well and truly distracted.
One problem is I never really wrote them down, which was a huge oops. I didn't have any reminders. So today, amongst my jobs is to write down my resolutions and post them on my desktop.
Am I bummed? Am I going to give up?
Nope. Crazy, but I'm not upset that I haven't been doing what I said I would, because I know I can still do it. Because you don't need January 1st or Monday to be your start day of a resolution.
See, that right there? That is positivity, and I didn't have to even think about being positive either.
