Oh Fine, Resolutions

You knew it was coming. Every year, I try to deny that I will have New Years Resolutions. Every year I make them anyway. And most years, I break them immediately, as per tradition. So here are this year’s resolutions, which I think should be easy enough to keep, although I reserve the right to completely screw them up almost immediately.

Be weird. Be the real me. Do all the stuff I’ve always wanted to do but was too scared because someone would think I was weird, or it would make someone uncomfortable, or it would challenge the status quo. Weird is the word for 2012.

Live with less. I’ve started with my wardrobe and my kitchen and my book collection. What’s next? Well, I’m definitely getting rid of a lot of the cosmetic and smelly-good stuff in my bathroom, but more ideas will come.

Know what I want. I’m almost embarrassed to write this one, but I’m going to do it anyway. I have a real problem with defining what exactly it is that I want. This year, I’m working on verbalizing what I want (not in a bratty way, just in a confident way) and going after it.

That’s it. Pretty simple, right? Here’s hoping.

So what are your resolutions for 2012?

  • Be weird? Welcome to the dark side Sonja. I’m so proud of you! My only resolution for 2012 is no serious hospitalizations for the whole year. The month of November is getting pretty notorious for surgeries amongst Parrish, Mel, Sherry & I.

    • I’m with you: 0 hospitalizations or job changes or moves. You’re done with all that crap!

  • These are GOOD resolutions.  I need to think up mine besides “try to keep my car cleaner” and “fold laundry sooner…”

    • I liked your resolutions post! And we never run out of wine at my house either. 😉

  • Great resolutions. Living with less is definitely one I want to add to my list. Of course, with a baby on the way, I’m not sure how I’ll pull it off! 

    • No kidding, Sarra! Seems like babies require 3x their weight in STUFF!

  • My only resolution for 2012: Have More Fun.  I need to lighten up, badly.  I have been taking everything far too seriously. So here I go!

    • More fun is ALWAYS a good idea!
