When sofagirl and I sat down on our respective couches to plan the end of the year blog, resolutions came up.
“I don’t remember mine” I said
“Well, they are right there on the blog” she answered
But I never went back to look at them. Until now. And it turns out, I stayed curious and kept my mind challenged by taking on new and unexpected projects but I wasn’t so diligent in tossing aside books that were not completely satisfying. Why I am bound to a sense of duty when it comes to reading, I have no idea. Will keep on working on it.
So, this year, I am printing them out and tacking them above my desk, to check my progress over time. And maybe set new ones as time goes by.
Sofagirl called them “intentions” this year, and I like the term better – it implies a sense of purpose I relate to.
- Saying yes more than I say no. It tends to yield welcome surprises.
- Travel to Italy for my friend Silvia’s 50th “milestone” birthday. Girls need support at such a time.
- Plan a major trip for 2015.
- Gather all the research and notes I put together on my grandfather’s death and finally write it all down. For no other purposes than to quiet that worm in my brain.
Have a wonderful New Year. Resolutions or not, may it be filled with intention.
