I don’t really do resolutions, because I feel like if you want to make a change, you should have started five minutes ago. Why wait another day? Why put it off? A few that I’ve adapted over the last few years… Stop counting calories. Pray more. Pay attention. Get in a daily/weekly workout routine.
So I don’t really have any new resolutions to share with you. Mostly, I want to keep it up, and keep challenging myself. But since both my 101 list and grad school are over, I feel the urge to make a to do list for the year…for 2012.
And so I give you my 12 in 2012 list. These are not earth shattering goals by any means. But they are mostly things I’ve been wanting to do but haven’t gotten around to. So with this list, I commit to these 12 things for 2012.
12 in 2012
Dear self – here are twelve things you should be sure to do in 2012…
Money…build my savings account to my goal – I’m currently at 30%.
Learn…to read a knitting or crocheting pattern.
Make…homemade ice cream.
Develop…research, plan, & create an Etsy shop.
Experience…a class with Jonathan – cooking, dance, etc…anything we both want to do!
Enrich…get a Nashville library card; visit the downtown library; and visit the Tennessee State Museum, too! (done)
Music…see a show at the Bluebird Café. (done)
Give Back…take Alexis volunteering at least twice; teach her how to make friendship bracelets (bracelets here).
Improve…repair that pile of clothes in the closet or get rid of them! And do a serious closet/under the bed clean out, while you’re at it. (done)
Chill Out…give yourself a break!
