2009 was a hard and long year in many aspects. 2010, however, is here and holds the hopes and dreams of the life I want to create for myself.
I have many things - both profound and fun, big and small - that I want to get done this year.
So, in 2010, in no particular order (well, except for the first one which is pretty critical), I resolve to...
...lose at least 100 pounds
...continue to pay down debt
...grow my emergency savigns account
...learn to love myself now - as I am this very moment - and to continue the self-acceptance as I move forward
...continue to grow and market my home businesses - and mom's and Travis'
...continue to nurture the relationship with my nieces and nephews
...blog regularly at least 3x a week
...learn to quilt
...create more scrapbook pages and do some legacy scrapbooking
...work on my book ideas (secret for now)
...no longer wear my past hurts and disappointments like a suit of armor
...organize all photos on my computer on CDs as back-up
...be creative on a daily - ar at least weekly - basis
...set up at craft shows this year with mom!
...redecorate guest room
...enter photo (specifically pets) contests, etc. - get my photos out there
...paint living room and make new curtains (I have had the fabric for almost a year! -- it's time!)
...add exercise to my daily routines - ANY movement is better than none :)
...learn to crochet and knit
I am so excited to see what I can make of this new year. For all of you, may your 2010 be filled with peace, wellness, joy, laughter, and love.
