Happy New Year 2023!

What are your resolutions for 2023? Or do you have no resolutions, because you are cool like that?

Happy New Year

Here are my 2023 New Year Resolutions:

  1. Read 50 books
  2. Do not watch a movie alone
  3. Exercise more
  4. Do not correct anybody (Do not be a Karen!)
  5. Eat vegan as much as possible

Reading 50 books may sound unrealistic, but I have done it before. After reading Digital Minimalism last year, I am even more determined than ever to consume less digital content and more books.


And the Rest

The thing about watching a movie alone is that I do not like it when all four of us are in front of four different screens. I can accept it up to a point. And yes, there might be a movie or two this year that I want to watch and my family is not interested. Fine. I can accept that, too. But the resolution is about being intentional in not drowning in digital content on my own.

The third resolution is boring. Everybody wants to exercise more. Boring is good, though.

Resolution number four is all about not turning into a Karen, who corrects people and situations everywhere she goes. My children have talked to me about this several times. I have mortified them with my Karen-like ways as we spent time together in town. I am done with that.

For 30 years now, I have been vegetarian (and vegan about half of those years). In order to keep my cholesterol levels under control, I am now intentional about avoiding eggs and dairy. My family has a history of high cholesterol and my lifestyle can remedy that. I still cook ovo-lacto-vegetarian for my family, but I can cook vegan (and gluten free) for me most of the time, with slightly more effort.

Share your resolutions with me and have a Happy New Year in 2023!

  2. Will audio books be part of your 50 books this year? I personally find it a great way to get more books in while driving or doing housework.

    • Yes, for sure. I don’t like it because I am visual and struggle to focus on audio material, but it will have to do. Sometimes the books I want are only available on Libby as audio books.
