New Year

January 2, 2011

2010 had lots of ups and even more downs. 2011 is going to be full of great things. I know every year I make resolutions and I attempt on sticking to them, and every year I fail. Well, 2010s resolutions half worked. I said I wanted to go to school, and I did. Sure, it didn’t last but I still did it. I also said I wanted to travel, which I did. It was only Las Vegas but big whoop, it’s something!
2011 I have numerous things planned.

1. Be healthy. Pack home made lunches to bring to work. In turn, I will become healthier as well as save money. Set a gym schedule. Sign up for Weight Watchers (online)

2. Save. I’ve been putting away money every pay day and every time I come across random money (birthdays, holidays, etc.) I want to move out and I need to do this. I have $310.00 saved up so far and aim to have $500.00 by the end of January.

3. Be Positive. I should listen to the classic line “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all”.

4. Read. I’ve fallen in love with books again and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.

5. Don’t sweat the small stuff. I’m the world’s biggest worrier. I need to learn how to take a deep breath and relax. I’m always on edge playing the “what if” game.

6. Make time for friends. I’ve been so caught up with being in love again that I haven’t really made time to see my friends. I’m putting everyone on the back burner because I want to see Dave all the time. It’s not fair for them, and I don’t want to end up being one of those people that has to be with their significant other at all times to be happy. I guess it will be better once Dave & I are living together.

7. Family. My mum appreciates my time and I appreciate hers. We both enjoy having dates and I want them to be more regular. At least once every 2-3 weeks do something. Even if it’s just going out for coffee and a chat.

8. Organize. I need to start deep cleaning / organizing my stuff. Since I’m planning on moving out, I really need to decide what I want to keep and what needs to be given away / donated / thrown out.

9. A picture is worth a thousand words. I’m going to continue taking pictures of anything and everything. But with that goal, I’d also like to get some of these pictures developed. When I have my own place I want an entire wall to be nothing but photographs.

10. Appreciate. I need to appreciate myself more. I need to say phrases like “I can” and “I will” instead of “maybe” and “I don’t know”. I need to be sure of myself, as well as be sure of people around me.

      Yes. My mum works for WW part time and I knew about the program a while before it was released. It’s kind of nice that you don’t have to worry about the calories so much. Thankfully, I don’t have to go out and buy any of the new items since my mum was given the stuff for free.
