I’m generally not one to make resolutions- or at least not ones that make it out of my mind and get verbalized or written down. I’m on an organization kick because of moving, so why not organize my thoughts in addition to all my worldly possessions?
In 2011, I resolve to:
1. Sing more. It used to be a tough task to shut me up when I was futzing about the house cleaning or doing my own thing (as Hubby affectionately calls it- “Karen-ing about”). I’ve realized that as the years have passed I find myself singing less and groaning more. Time to reverse that evolution and start finding enjoyment in the everyday (even if they do include laundry or dusting).
2.(Re)Develop healthier habits. Gym was once a dear friend and confidant. Somehow I’ve gotten out of my healthy routines- life seems to disrupt routines. 2010 was my worst fitness year by far. Why? Excuses. April, I started a new job: routine disrupted. June, Hubby started new job: more disruption and adapting. July, we adopted Daisy kitten: more adapting and distractions (of the purring fuzzy kind). No more excuses! We have an elliptical for quick workouts. A gym right by work for longer ones. We have a stove to cook healthy meals and a refrigerator to store fresh foods. I am leaving my excuses and unhealthy habits at the apartment when we move in 11 days.
3.Send cards and generally be more thoughtful toward others. We all have a tendency to get caught up in our own little worlds. I’m guilty. My goal is to put a smile on the faces of those around me more often.
4.Push myself. …to try new things. …to venture outside of my comfort zone. …to not settle for the status quo.
5. Blog daily. WordPress is challenging its users to Post a Day. Challenge accepted!
