We Need A Resolution

What's in a Resolution? 
I finally sat down with pen and paper in hand and wrote down my Top Ten resolutions of the New Year. 
It's never too late to change things in your life or re-write your future. If you haven't done so already, Get on it!
  1. Be a good mother, be a better daughter, be a better friend. Listening to others is key in relationships/friendships. I plan on saying Yes more to my fam and friends and tucking the No word away for awhile. 
  2. Letting Go. I need to finally let go of J.. maybe one day he will make his way back to me but I cannot under no circumstance force someone to love me and be with me. I need to let go of a lot of anger and pain I have in my heart. I need to let go of the hurt. Everyday is a new day. Remember that. 
  3. Buy a House. I am in no rush for this one, just sometime before 2012 is over. Please and Thank You.
  4. Yoga/Meditation Classes.  I want to join a yoga and meditation class and stick with it. This has been something I have wanted to do for the longest time. 
  5. Go back to school. It's a must.
  6. Dream Job. I'm gonna be a mama now and I need to
  7. Read More. I decided for 2012 I will always have a book on my nightstand and any free moment I get, I will use it to curl up and read a good book. Let's see how many books I can read in 2012. Challenge?
  8. Lose Weight. I definitely want to become a better me and lose weight. Thankfully I haven't gained too much but I need to kick my butt into gear and workout and eat healthy in 2012, especially for Milla E. 
  9. Braces. I hate the term "Adult Braces" but my teeth have been shifting lately with my front one overlapping my other front one just by a little bit and it's beginning to get on my nerves. Straight pearly whites for me. Yes, please.
  10.  Adventure. After the past year of heartbreak. I definitely need more adventure in fun in my life. Dates, Live Shows, Art Shows, Dinners with friends, Dates with mamas and their babies. I just want to enjoy 2012 to the fullest. Let's do this!

On the 6th Day.

I start off my New Year with a lot of determination. Unfortunately, the first thing I did in the New Year was take two steps back. Spent the night with my ex and the cats and it felt good to be home again. In the bed we shared with the animals we loved. Of course, there is nothing peaceful about a break up gone sour so there were lots of tears, shouts, and finger pointing. Biggest Mistake of 2012 thus far. It is so hard.
I saw this and thought, this is exactly how I feel. 
I will prevail.

Happy New Year

I decided to embark on a little journey this new year and join a fun project. All this really means is that I post a photo a day  of something, anything, whatever I feel like posting for one whole year and write a little something about said picture and voila! Life long memories at my fingertips for the rest of my life.

Another little New Year's Project I have going on is to always have a book in hand to read. When I finish one I want to immediately pick up another and start that one. Now, it might take me weeks or maybe even months to finish each book but as long as I'm reading steadily, this is all that matters to me. I'm calling this "me" time. 

On top of all this I finally picked up this book.

 It is a gratitude journal that you follow each day for one year. I cannot wait to read the first passage for today January 1st. I have heard this book turns you into a better you and a shift happens within yourself and this is exactly what I need right now.
Happy New Year.
