- to take more chances (inspired by the fearless Julia Child)
- to take better care of my physical self
- to be kinder to myself
- to finish more of what I start, but not just for the sake of finishing. Although, thinking about it I think I need to learn to be a better quitter. Sounds funny, but I think there's something healthy, empowering, and often beyond my reach to quit things when they have become an unrewarding obligation. One of my greatest pleasures this fall and holiday was the fact that I did not run the school fundraiser that I did last year. I declined this year simply because it sucked too much of my precious time. Seems obvious, but it was a big struggle to say no. Especially because no one else picked it up so they dropped the program.
So this year, I resolve to say NO more to others and YES more to my family. That's a big one, so I might just leave it at that.
Sounds like some goofy manifesto from a Nike ad. I should resolve to spend less time on the computer, but let's not get crazy.
Enjoy day 2 of 2010.
