resolutions

inspired by my fellow bloggers like jillian and danielle, i am sharing my new year's resolutions today. i always write my resolutions and goals for the year down in my planner so i can revisit them throughout the year to see if i'm on track or not. i think one of the hardest things is choosing a finite number of goals that are realistic and do-able. my tendency is to write down several, and some of them very lofty. so this year, it's just three...

1. create and launch super awesome side project. i hope to share details with you all in a few months!

2. learn to play the banjo. my dad played (and so did j's dad) and he instilled a love of folk music in me. it's my way of feeling a little bit closer to him.

3. serve my community. i think volunteering and giving back is so important, but i know if i don't build it into my schedule, it's too easy to not do it consistently. j and i have picked one project and our goal is to serve twice a month. i'm excited!

what about you? do you create yearly resolutions or goals?

I love these resolutions, can't wait to hear about #1 and this quote is super inspiring. I think I need to hang it on my bulletin board.

These are great goals for the year! I try to limit myself to 1 or 2 for the year so I don't get discouraged if they don't get done. Writing them in a planner is a great idea!

Banjo, love the sound of that instrument! It would be fabulous if you learned that. I'm curious about your side project now. And serving the community is a very loving gesture:) I don't make resolutions, never actually. I just try to live happily and stay true to myself and others.

These are wonderful goals! I usually don't create new ones each year, but launching the new site was a big check mark off goals I set in 2011!

Good resolutions! I really want to learn to play an instrument as well!

Sounds like great resolutions and goals... I cannot wait to learn more. (and I'm especially fond of the last—made my heart warm)
