Every year, I attempt to write a resolution-even though as a friend said, “What’s the use when you never stick to it?” So true, but I think that resolutions are a tradition for me. I’ve done it almost every year since I was kid. Writing that list always gave me something to hope for, look forward to and to wish upon, as if a new year could hold so much more for me than the previous one. Kind of shedding your old skin and being reborn into everything you wanted to be but couldn’t. You know the “perfect you”-the skinnier, more organized, gentler, kinder soul that everyone loves while having the perfect job and the perfect life. Of course you might never achieve all that’s on your list, but there’s that glimmer of hope that maybe this year…
So here’s my list for a fine 2009. After all, 2008 was pretty great, who knows what’s in store for the new year?
1. Write more!
2. Spend less.
3. Travel to New York.
4. Write a gratitude journal.
5. Keep a food diary.
7. Spend time doing something fun every day.
8. Create a timeline for my dream career.
9. Meditate at least weekly!
10. Be open to possibility.
