New Year's Resolutions

Every year when January 1st rolls around I have a whole list of resolutions for every aspect of my life. I guess its the perfectionist in me, as there is a never ending list in my head as to how I can improve. Then, as long as I actually complete one resolution, I am happy. Its sort of fail safe.

Last year one of my resolutions was to display some of my pictures that I take in my home. I came up with a photo wall of 9 16 X 20 canvas prints that I love. I have one left that I need to still fill of my hubby (getting him to do a photo shoot of only him will be a miracle). But it was a lot of work and took a long time to accumulate the photos and put it all together. So I am happy.

This year, I want to do a lot more for my home. Turning my house into a home kinda stuff. I have my toe dipped into so many little ventures, I would like to take one of them and run with it. Turn it into something bigger. As for my health, I have a lot of ideas for the site, but I haven't made any real goals for myself. I am still trying to master the once a week yoga. The holidays kinda took me off of that one, whoops!

I have spiritual goals and family goals, but they too come with roadblocks that make it hard. And I've decided I don't want to put too much pressure on myself. Make life simpler so as not to get so overwhelmed. So I think the simplest way for me this year is to sum all of my goals into one mission statement if you will:

To spend my time with people that I love, doing activities that I love, that make myself and my family happy.

Remembering that will help me to stay focused on where I should be.

Any New Year's Resolutions for you?

Hi Aimee! I have been working on a photo wall as well and part of my resolution is to finish it! It is a bunch of black and white photos I have taken of my family, but I am having trouble getting my hubby to do a "photo shoot" as well! ha ha As for my anxiety, my goal this year is to be more accepting of it and not beat myself up about having it. Just last night we had friends over for dinner,and ofcourse the first thing my friend says to me is "wow, your so skinny." As you know that can be very upsetting but I was able to let it go and enjoy the night without worrying that everyone was watching what I was eating for dinner. Hoping that things improve this year and panic attacks will lesson. Do you still get panic attacks or have you been able to eliminate for the most part? I started taking zoloft a few months ago and I have lorezepam as needed. I rarely take the lorezepam but it is nice to have it there if I need it!

I am going to try and not worry so much about what others think..focus more on what's two wonderful kids and husband. And to be more "me" instead of acting the way I think others want me to be. Oh and to not facebook so much!lol
Wishing peace for everyone for the new year.
