I have noticed many people out there are publicly posting their resolutions, maybe to be held accountable?
I get that.
Although I have tried new years resolutions in previous years I have found that I have the personality that I need to remember that everyday is a clean slate rather than every year or else my goals would be botched January 2nd.
So this year I decided I would have a theme instead of resolutions.
My theme for 2012 is:
No, I don't feel the Mayans were ominously prophesying the end of the world in 2012 with the end of their calendar.
However, I do feel I am not exempt from natural disasters or unplanned circumstances.
Also, I just know that I am a much happier and relaxed person when I know I am prepared.
So what does being prepared entail?
The more I do research / think about it, the more I feel overwhelmed.
So, I will be taking this year to little by little get prepared and if you are interested I will be posting about it.
I have a long way to go.
Luckily my parents gave us a jump start with a 72 hour kit for Christmas. It is amazing.
You know how when you get so excited about a vacuum or a kitchen appliance you know you are officially an adult?
Somehow having a baby has a similar effect, except for now I know I will go to any lengths to protect my baby. So when we opened the 72 hour kit I felt pure relief, elation, excitement... all the good emotions.
I hope you join me on my journey for preparedness.Because this little lady is counting on me.
