I don’t generally make resolutions. When I do I never keep them. It seems pointless. Yesterday, though, a friend shared a thing where she used predictive text to make resolutions. I like the predictive text stuff. I once did an entire post here using it. I did mine and,as another friend pointed out, they are actually good resolutions for me. I decided to expand on them here.
Be Sure That I Would Love It
Eventually in 2021 I will probably have to rejoin the working world. I’m coming off 25 years of being focused on what fits my family schedule, what pays well, advancement, etc. instead of being happy. My leaving was about me and my mental health. I don’t want to fall into that again. I can explore my options and spend time making sure wherever I land is somewhere that will not be detrimental to my mental health. I don’t know that I will love any job, but I should at least like it.
Be a Nice Person
I think everyone should work on this one. I feel like I do a pretty good job most of the time. People who know me in real life can let me know if I’m wrong.
Be a Little Late
This is a good one for me. I’m not just on time for everything, I’m generally early. I still think it is important to be on time for most things. Work, school, church. Things like that. I need to relax when going places with no real start time. I’m the person who, if we say we are heading out on a road trip at certain time, gets annoyed if everyone is not ready at that time. I know it’s not a hard deadline but I still expect everyone to stick to it. I drive fast and get annoyed with delays when I’m going to random places with no time issues. I’m like the Alabama song
“I’m in a hurry to get things done. I rush and rush until life’s no fun. All I really got to do is live and die. I’m in a hurry and don’t know why.”Alabama
Why am I in a hurry? Especially now. I’ve got no place to be. I need to relax and live life to the fullest and not rush through it.
Be There at Five
I’m not sure where I’m supposed to be at five, but given the one above, let’s make it five-ish.
Be a Little Bit Better
I can do this. A little bit better is easy. Baby steps.
So, there you have it. My official 2021 resolutions brought to me by predictive text.
