The making and breaking of a resolution

Happy New Year!

Okay, so it’s Jan 9th and the new year festivities have come and gone. But better late than never, right? Probably not. Especially since for the first time ever I decided to make a New Year’s Resolution. Crap. What was I thinking? It was a general one too. One that I could apply to all aspects of my life. I was to stop procrastinating. There goes that – as I’m over a week late in writing this.

At first I was really mad at myself. When I first sat to write this hours ago, I was thinking that I would write all about how I’ve failed myself, my family, once again. But then as I sat here in misery, it came to me that the reason I hadn’t sat down to update my blog wasn’t because of my usual “I’ll get to it tomorrow” attitude, but instead it was because I truly have been busy. Busy enjoying my boys. Busy enjoying my family. Not that I haven’t done that before. But the last couple of weeks have been different. I’ve been moved by how fast life seems to be moving. How fast my boys are growing. How fast I’m getting older.

For the first time since living in snowy climate I actually enjoyed playing in the snow with  my children today. Big who has been known to repeat “mommy doesn’t do winter” ran to me and said “mommy, thank you, this is the best fun” He thanked me for enjoying the moment.

So then it came to me, I’m not procrastinating- I’m enjoying the moment.
From the mouths of babes.
