I don't do resolutions.
But tonight as I responded "you too" to the cashier at the theater when she told me to "enjoy my movie." I realized how unauthentic I had become when communicating with strangers.
"It's habit," Mr. Ski assured me but something within me had changed after that realization because I wasn't really listening to what she was saying but more I was hearing what I assumed I would hear. So I declared 2013 would be my year of being more authentic, listening more and talking not just to talk but to communicate. Instead of saying the usual 'fine' whenever someone asks how I'm doing, I'm going to tell them exactly how I'm doing; good or bad. On second thought the general population may not appreciate my new found desire to be authentic as I'm not always in the most greatest of moods. Although, it may teach people to only ask how someone is doing if they really care. :o)
So how am I today? Today has been a day full of some of my favorite things:
Eating husband prepared homemade breakfast
Watching The Nanny (I LOVE Fran Drescher!)
Cleaning (not a favorite thing but necessary)
Seeing Les Miserables with my love.
And a piece of peanut butter chocolate fudge.
Great day, indeed!
