new resolutions.

January 10, 2011


"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours."Henry David Thoreau

After recording a new years resolution list a few weeks ago, (with over 20+ items) 2011 started off seeming slightly overwhelming. That is, until, I read the quote above, which fits nicely as my theme for twenty eleven. Some of my to-do list items include: making my bed every single day (and considering I have 32 pillows, it is actually quite the undertaking) I'd like to teach myself how to cook a new meal once a week, and... a resolution list wouldn't be a resolution list without some sort of new diet/exercise program: P90x baby. Talk about a workout.

Last year, I'm happy to say that I made a list of about 10 goals and each one was successfully accomplished. Surprisingly, the easiest item to cross off my list was deactivating my Facebook account. Although this was a joint partnership decision, (Kylie Haws inspired me, and the moral support went a long way) we originally thought we'd just get rid of it for 2010, while 2011 was left up for debate. But after 365 days without the book of the face, I decided to keep it up forever... Life regained balance after the habit of stalking was broken, and George Clooney might have convinced me too:

“I’d rather have a rectal examination on live TV by a fellow with cold hands than have a Facebook page.”

Agreed.

I am not brave enough to live without Facebook...but I admire you for doing so! But that quote is just what I need right now; I'm feeling worried about my future. I hope my uncommon hour comes soon.

I'm loving catching up on your blog. Missed you while you were away!
