New Year, New Resolutions

And so another new year has begun. If you are anything like me I am always inspired to start anew, refresh, recharge. Unfortunately it isn't as easy as that. In the past I have always made lofty, highly unachievable resolutions: lose 70 lbs by February, get rid of all clutter in home, move to a new home next week.

Ok, so maybe those were slightly exaggerated, but truthfully each year I make my list and usually within days I have "fallen off" the proverbial wagon and I my resolutions are a thing of the past. I have been reflecting a lot the past week or so and I realize that what I want more than anything is to be the person I was used to be. Not literally, 10 years all but erases that possibility. But I want to look in the mirror and see someone smiling back that not only do I like, but funny as this may sound, I love.

Posted below is my list of resolutions for the year. You might note that #4 on my list is Love myself. This isn't anything weird or funny, just truly loving who I am. I need to appreciate all of the good in my life. Be thankful for what I have and what I can do. And more importantly I need to accept what I can't do, not beat myself up over it, but accept that its ok.

In 2 weeks I will be turning 35. That is a magical age to me, not because I am half way to 40 but because I feel like I am finally an adult. An adult who resolves to love myself.


  1. Thanks for stopping by. The tights are from Gymboree. In the clearance bin now if you are lucky enough to snag a pair!

  2. I am with you on #2-#5! #1, I don't think I can swing it. I am a night owl but the kids have changed that. Thank you for stopping by the blog and commenting. Cinderella is on a clip, so I just attached it to a plain white bow! :D
