I know this will come as a huge shocker given my type-A, list loving, OCD tendencies, but I am a fan of New Year's resolutions. Big time. I've made them religiously ever since I was a kid, and I tend to put a lot of thought into crafting them. No willy nilly resolutions here.
Last year was no exception. I went all-in on my resolution creation, even launching a blog to support one of them. And I managed to actually make some good progress against them (after all, the whole point in making resolutions is attempting to keep them, right??).
But I'm struggling a bit this year. It's not that I don't have goals. I do. But after such an intense month and our recent reminders of the uncertainty and fragility of life, I'm feeling a bit more, well, for lack of a better word...fluid.
So I'm going for something lighter this time around (something a bit more unstructured, that allows room for embracing the unknown twists and turns), by focusing on the things I want to do more of and some that I want to curb a bit in 2012...
So with that in mind, I intended for this year to include:
Making, Attentiveness, Art, Champagne, Cooking, Gratitude, Green Vegetables, Green Tea, Unplugging, Ballet, Listening, Risk Taking, Reading, Playing Outside, Kindness, Editing
Buying, Sugar, Busyness, Stuff, Over-scheduling, Distractions, Waste, Over-thinking
What about you guys, what would be on your more/less lists?
