New Year's Resolutions…and all that jazz.

Happy New Year! Today is the first day of what I'm sure is going to be a wonderful 365! I am so excited that I could start it off on a wonderful note surrounded by friends and family and I have soo many exciting things in the works for this year (Europe anyone?). 
I'm sure you're all wondering what resolutions I've set for myself, and for the most part they're all pretty normal and mainstream, so I love these graphics of general NY resolutions! I'm going to print them and place them all over to serve as good reminders. 
And food, but I'm thinking with more love, light, and laughter, 2014 could be the best year yet!
As will be obvious in the next two graphics as well, I stress way too much. I do too much worrying and over thinking and not enough living and enjoying and in 2014, I'm going to seriously work on changing that. 
I love that this has quotes for everyone, no matter which resolutions they've come up with. It pretty much incorporates everything I want to do in 2014 and the quotes just top it all off! 
This one is getting printed about a million times. It's so simple to look at all the bad things you do and easily see it's alternative. It is so easy and simple to change one minor thing and it takes a lot less energy to be kind and grateful than to be selfish and hateful. 
I don't really believe in setting all sorts of rigid goals and stressing about meeting all sorts of expectations, because I feel like that never works, so I'm focusing on small, easy decisions to do better everyday. I want to get healthier, whether that be by working out 3 days a week or 1, and eating healthier as well. I want to say "yes" to more things and go on more adventures without over thinking and stressing all the fun out of it. I want to be kinder and more patient and focus more on the big picture instead of tiny little failures or bumps in the road. I also want to stop biting my nails, which may be the hardest to improve on. All in all, I'm not setting in rock solid goals or deadlines for myself. I just want to feel like I've made personal improvements in my life when I'm saying goodbye to 2014, much like I do now about 2013. 
In the wise words of my favorite human ever (quell surprise, I know), my main goal is just to...

I mean, is he just not the cutest most wonderful thing you've ever seen? I think yes. 
What are your New Year's resolutions?
