It’s January and it’s time to make some NY resolutions.
My NY Resolutions:
1. Be more patient!
No comments on this one.
2. Start doing yoga.
I’ve started doing yoga several times in my life. I tried different yoga studios. Did it for a bout a month every time. But I never got the point of it. It just didn’t work for me quite well. Especially the breathing part. I just CAN’t switch my mind off. But I’ve been feeling so restless lately, so “on the edge”, because of all those pregnancy/after pregnancy hormones, that I feel a strong need in some sort of meditation. I know If I don’t start working on myself emotionally, I will crack at some point. So I decided to go back and try it one more time. Because it works for so many of you, right?!
3. Go swimming at least once a week.
It’s been about 5 months that I haven’t been doing any exercises. I used to swim a lot when I was pregnant with Ivan. When he was born, I was doing my home work-out. Then I started doing aqua-fitness with Ivan. And now – nothing. I literally don’t have no time or energy for this. Which is not a good reason, I know. So I really have to start doing at least something, especially since I have a swimming pool in the building!
4. Stop saying “I want a divorce”
)) Yeeeep, it slipped out of my mouth a few times. And I’m not proud of it. At all.
5. Do a 365 Project.
Last year I was doing a 365 project of Ivan. Every day I would take a picture of Ivan. And it was wonderful to see his little changes every day. Now I know when exactly he learnt to grab a toy, when he smiled at me for the first time, when he started crawling and so so on – it’s all in my pictures. This year I decided to do a project 365 of our family. So I am taking pictures of what our family is up to every day. I will also post my monthly report at the end of each month.
6. Devote every Sunday (or Saturday) to my son and to my family.
This one is the HARDEST on the list. I can not relax, I can not do nothing. I am always up for something. I always have things to do. But now, since my son is at the day care all week long and I see him only in the morning and in the evening, I fell I don’t spend enough time with him. And he misses me. I can see that. So I decided that I really need to make myself one day-off a week and spend it PLAYING with my son. And it would mean no computer time, no studying, no working, no :”Wait a minute Ivan, I need to do the laundry” or “Wait Ivan, I need to do the dishes”. I mean, if he doesn’t mind watching me do this – fine. But if he starts whining – I’ll stop.
I also have my Life resolutions list that I add up to regularly.

Never stop dreaming!
