Finally dug out my list of 2011 New Year's resolutions.
There were 38 of them. I accomplished 4.
I'm removing two resolutions that I think are dumb, so that leaves 36 resolutions. Of the remaining unfinished 32 resolutions, I believe if I really try, I can complete an additional 9.
REALISTICALLY, I will complete probably 3 of them, the most important of those being to finish the book. Finishing the book will really make the remainder of the resolutions moot -- I don't give a crap WHAT I didn't accomplish this year as long as this blasted novel is done.
I usually do much better with my resolutions, but I think I got completely distracted this year by the pregnancy/miscarriage nonsense. I lost focus, big time. I'm trying to learn how to be a buckle-downer, but it's not inherent, so I have to struggle against my own tendency to daydream and distract myself with other things.
I'll make another resolution list, once this year is over. Really, I just need this year to go bye-bye. If you've read me for a while, you know I love the New Year; love that fresh start and new chance to make it work. To make amazing things happen.
Maybe that will be 2012's mantra. Make amazing things happen. I believe we're each able to accomplish so much more than we realize. Will have to think about this some more.
Do you make resolutions? How is your 2011 list looking?
