2011 Resolutions. . .

I don't think I have ever made a new year's resolution and stuck with it.  I can't even remember the last year I made one resolution, let alone several. SO, while I had the week off with the hubs, I thought I would come up with a list of things I want to do this year. I have heard that if you right your goals down, you are more likely to accomplish them. So I am taking on the challenge. Some may seem minor, or ridiculous, but these are things I am going to try and work on.  I am by no means perfect or incapable of a little change here and there. So here's the list I have so far. . . YES, so far. I am not limiting myself to a certain number of self help goals. The possibilities are endless, and I hope to achieve as many of these babies as I can.

1. Keep blogging and working to expand SBF

2. Read more. - I bought a Kindle last January and read about 1 book a month.  That stopped in October, so I want to get back to doing that.  It's nice to escape and forget about things for a while.

3. Exercise! - We have a treadmill upstairs and I have yet to use it! Embarrassing!

4. Listen more/talk less.

5. Save more.

6. Have more "tech" free nights with the hubby - This will be a challenge!

7. Call more, text less. - I am determined to stop texting full length conversations and just pick up the phone and talk to people.

8. Use my stationary more. - I LOVE getting cards and letters in the mail.  I am going to work harder at sending more "snail mail."

9. Cook more often.

10. Volunteer/give back more. - I have been very blessed, and my parents have always taught me, "to whom much is given, much is expected in return."

11. Eat at the dinner table without watching TV. - This sounds crazy, but we have started a bad habit of eating dinner on the couch in our living room and watching TV.

12. More "date nights" with the Hubby. We are together a lot, but it's nice to get out of the house and do things together.

13. Treat myself to more spa days. - I haven't had a massage in YEARS. I am making myself get one at least once every 2 months or so. ;)

14. Take more pictures. - I am the girl that brings her camera everywhere, and never takes a picture. I am going to work hard to capture more of 2011 than I did in 2010. 

15. Take more fashion risks. - I tend to play it safe most of the time, but I am determined to step outside my comfort zone. If I like it, then it doesn't matter who else does!

What are some of your goals? Here's hoping to a fabulous 2011!  I have a feeling it's going to be a wonderful year!

Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man. — Benjamin Franklin

The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul. — G. K. Chesterton
