10 Resolutions I Won’t Be Making

Girl holding a sparklerIt’s that time of year when everyone is setting personal resolutions for losing weight, saving money, or trying to be less of an idiot in some way. For me, here’s ten resolutions that I WON’T be making:

1. Be Less Rambunctious
I have a curious mind. I love to explore, test, try, push boundaries and take risks. I learn best by trial and error. It’s how I discover things and engage with the world around me. Sure, it gets me in trouble sometimes (er, a lot of times) but I learn from my mistakes. Usually.

2. Grow Up and Act My Age
I’ll never be too old for crayons, costumes, treehouses, or sugar-infused giggling. It’s how I stay grounded and relieve stress. Work hard but play even harder!!

3. Hide My Inner Nerd
I love books, science, toys and movies to a nerdy degree. I even have my own mutant super-human powers like some of my favorite childhood superheroes (read my post about Sensory Processing Disorder to see what I mean). I’ve been through a lot in my life, so I feel a responsibility to inspire others to overcome their personal nemesis as well…which means I’m highly likely to make a lot of Star Wars or Princess Bride references in conversation. It just happens.
