Happy New Year - Resulotion Time

Yippee, First post of 2010. Wow!

Do people still make resolutions? Does anybody actually keep them? I don't know. I am sure some do but I have never been one to make or keep them. Maybe I knew that setting yourself up to fail is just a waste of time because let's face what a bad time of year to try and do something monumental like losing weight or quitting smoking. After all in North America Christmas is the gorging season and for many of us the holidays come with added stress of weird family dynamics. Stress and smoking go hand in hand just like Christmas and treats go hand in hand.

Hand's up, how many of you had a freezer full of Christmas baking this past Christmas or better how many of you received said baking or boxes of chocolates for a gift?

Still with all the changes coming in January I feel somehow moved to make a few as I look at closing off one phase of my life and entering into a new one. You cannot imagine how thrilled and excited I am to be moving into my own home again and not having to share one with my relatives.

So here are a few things I'd like to keep this year.

New Years Resolutions

~ Live more

~ Love more

~ Be More

~Exercise and lose weight (such an obvious and cliched one I know)

~ Discover one passion in life and pursue it (hobby wise)

~ Work on my novel

~ Play with my kids more

~ Grow more as a person

What are some of your resolutions?


  1. Simplicity is sometimes best in the case of resolutions. I love yours.

    Mine are up on my blog today.

  2. You seem to put a lot on your plate there, Zeemaid.
    I'm planning on getting more organized, getting published, and getting dental insurance for the family.

  3. I admire how many things you are looking to change this year. A new home can lead to many other changes! This year I have vowed to be healthier. This will certainly need to include weight loss but all in all I want to be healthier. I listed all of the things that my weight holds me back from on www.askbecca.com. It is eye opening! Good luck with your journey and if you are having a discouraging day just email me. Perhaps a network of people helping one another be the best they can be will make us all successful this year!

  4. Those are great resolutions. Simple and to the point.

    I hope you have an awesome 2010!
