Simple, but difficult. I don't want to just say general goals about being healthier, working harder, quitting a bad habit because they never last and as I've heard many people say this year, I don't take them very seriously.
But being better just means being the best I can be in whatever situations are thrown at me. I can't know what the future holds. So many things could happen that may be defining moments where my decision or action would change everything. So I'll just be better. The past many months have been a lot of me seeing who I am, what I want to do and who I would like to be. Oh so many cliches, but really I've been trying to figure out who I would like to shape myself into. And I'd like that person to be the best me and a good human.
Maybe I'll just not take the easy route with things, perhaps sometimes I will. I do tend to make life a lot harder by doing everything the most difficult way- maybe I'll stop that.
Or maybe I'll be more positive more frequently. Generally, I'm a pretty positive person but being stuck in a stinky situation has left me with many negative moments. I am most definitely not saying I will get rid of those moments. I thrive on them to be my venting sessions to get all of that yuckiness out. Maybe just more positivity overall.
I should be a better friend. Sometimes I get lost in my own world and forget about repaying all the wonderful people in my life.
But maybe I'll be a bit more selfish. I frequently have the problem of wanting to take care of everyone else before me, much to my parents dismay, that I forget about my own health and happiness.
Perhaps I will get better with decisions, lord knows I am indecisive. Jeez, even this resolution is about as indecisive as you could get.
There are so many things that I can choose to do that will make me better.
By making this general "be better" resolution, I don't quite feel the pressure to do something specific. "Better" has a large spectrum and I can choose where I would like to fall. There are so many different definitions of better to, so many categories. As long as I try to be happy, healthy and nice, I'm pretty sure I can't fail this resolution.
