To say you have a new years resolution is like saying for 2 weeks you will half heartily try to change and ultimately end up the same. Now to say you are resolved to do something somehow changes the sentiment. There is no wiggle room. You no longer "have a resolution" you are in fact "resolved" to change. Having a firm decision versus being firmly determined. Well for a person like me who questions what decision I make from a restaurant menu is the same girl who was determined not to cook that night. For me the difference is huge. So this year I am resolved to spend the year fixing those things that annoy me about myself.  Like hitting refresh, this time the page will open as it should.

I am resolved to keeping my ever present pile of clothes off the bedroom floor. Perhaps this is more for my husband than myself. It is no secret he loathes this part of me. I have always been incapable of keeping the bedroom free of my pile. This year it stops.

I am resolved to getting this 7 lbs of holiday cookies and cheese puffs off my ass.

I am resolved to stop freaking out about the possible Apocalypse this year. This will be the toughest to overcome but I will be a sensible person and not live like someone who has watched one too many History Channel shows on the end of the world.

I am resolved to drink more water.

I am resolved to doing my absolute best at using all the food in the fridge before it goes bad.

I am resolved to limit the amount of bras I buy. When one has had enough, then I can replace it, but I may no longer bring them home just because.

I am resolved to keeping my work space neat and under control. It was such a disaster before Christmas I spent two whole days reorganizing before my family came over for Christmas dinner and saw what a monster I really am. I am determined to keep it that way. I even took pictures to remind myself of what an absolute joy a clean workspace is.

I am resolved to learn Quickbooks this year. I have had it for two years now....this will be the year I finally figure out what the hell I am doing.

I am resolved to stop being such a chicken shit and go to the dentist. If I have to get my wisdom teeth out so be it.

I am resolved to keeping the dining room table clear. This will begin once I have cleared it for the first time this year. OK I'll get back to you on that one...it appears as though I am not off to the best start.

I am resolved to stop all the regret and just take dance classes again. Why not?

Well, I have much to work on this year. I better go clean the dining room table off and get this ball rolling. I would love to hear what some of your resolutions are this year. Post post post!

Happy New Years everyone!


  1. That was fun, Sara. I can really relate to most of them...all but the bras and the dentist. I am really going to take off 9 lbs in 2 months. I am going to make a pot of soup almost every week (so no food gets old in fridge.) Declutterifying the house and studio is high on the list too. Happy New Year!
