Everyone seems to be making resolutions and I have been thinking about where I am in my life and career. While I am one who personally enjoys making to-do lists (sometimes even several times a day), this year I feel, for my own sanity, I need to take a new approach to the resolutions. It is still a to-do list of sort (because I can’t resist) but on that focuses on my strengths rather than on the areas of improvements. So here it is, in no particular order…
Continue to write everyday. This includes blogging, finishing my novel, as well as writing down the best of the crazy stories I tell Thomas each night. Yes, he requests that I TELL him a story rather than read. There are good ones and some pretty terrible ones.
Continue to eat a vegetarian diet. Starting back with the Veg Week at the end of September, I just kept going with one or two meals off. It suits me. It feels right.
Finish the projects I started from 2011. Mostly this applies to work, but also to writing and reading. I’m not going to even suggest that I not start anything new until I finish. That is just unrealistic.
Continue to stay involved in my community.This includes North Park, the nonprofits I love and the local music scene.
Be the best mom and wife I can be. This really should be at the top of the list but since they are in no particular order, it is at the bottom. Roger and I are approaching year five of our amazing marriage and our little boy is turning three. I like to thank them everyday for being in my life through hugs, kisses, smiles, cooking dinners, telling stories and making cool costumes. Because without them I really couldn’t continue to do all of the things above with a smile.
