New Years Resolutions. . . Do You Make Them??

It is hard to believe that in a few days it will be a new year.  As this time rolls around I always think about new beginnings and a fresh start.  One thing I do not do is make resolutions.  I never have.  Although I do think about changes I want to make in my life and wishes I have for the new year.  I think if I were to make a resolution I would not stick to it.  Then again, it is hard for me to stick to anything lately!

Looking forward I wish for more peace in my life, more fun, less stress (don't we all)  and to worry much less than I do.  I want to get organized and really clean out stuff, not just physical things but the stuff in my mind that holds me back.  And that my friends is that hardest part.

I want to spend more time doing what makes me happy and brings out my creativity.  For me that means pictures, paper, beads, colors, stickers, and words.  I don't want to take things for granted.  I don't want to relearn lessons from the past.  I want to leave the past in its place.

This list is a work in progress for me.  I need to make a vision board as a daily reminder of the places I want to go. . .

Do you make resolutions?  What is on your list for the new year?

Nope - no resolutions here. To me, resolutions is a term that means you have a good intention but no real desire to follow through with it - I think I read something once that said that 95% of resolutions are broken in the first month. Not very good odds. I choose to look at the first of the year as a way to re-evaluate my life. What do I want to shift around? What do I need to modify permanetly? How did I live in the previous year that makes me happy? sad? regretful?

I hope you have a wonderful New Year's celebration. I look forward to 2010. My husband will be back after 9 months working out of state, I will get to celebrate my 2nd cancer-versary, and hopefully, things will start looking up for us.
