Welcome 2010!

Happy New Year blogfriends!!!

A lot of people talk about resolutions this time of year.  For me, the very mention of the words New Year's Resolution makes my skin crawl and I feel the need to break out my rag doll and hide in a corner sucking my thumb me anxious.  But that's just me.  I am thrilled for people that can come up with a list of things they want to do/change/accomplish/try/experience/etc throughout the year and actually stick to it.  That's the hard part.  The "stick-to-it-iveness" part of resolutions.  I haven't made a New Year's Resolution for literally, well, years.  Why?  Because it's the immense crushing sense of failure I feel when I don't stick to them.  I always resolve to lose weight.  To be more organized.  To do this or that or try something new.  I do okay for about 3 weeks and then it all goes to hell in a handbasket.  And I feel like shit about it.  So...I resolved years ago to not make any more New Year's resolutions.  This, my friends, is one resolution I have actually stuck to!  :)

A friend and I were talking the other night and she said she is declaring 2010 her "Year of/for Me".  The more I got to thinking about it, the more I love the idea. 

I'm jumping on the bandwagon and claiming 2010 as my "Year of Self".  I have a reason for calling it that, and that will be explained in a later post. you make New Year's Resolutions?  Why or why not?  If you do, what were/are some of yours for 2010?


  1. I don't really make New Year's resolutions anymore, simply because I keep making (& breaking) the same ones over & over again. :p I did just post about how I'd like to see the next 10 years unfold. : )

  2. I think that sound like a great plan for 2010! Happy New Year!

  3. No resolutions here, either.

    I like the idea of you "Year of Self"!

  4. Great Post! You are welcome to hop on this bandwagon!

    Did I mention that part of my "Year of the Me" is to build in some guaranteed successes? For example, I will NOT eat broccoli in 2010. Another one of my favorites is that I will use my iPhone at least once EVERY DAY of 2010.

    See? I've already got some built in successes. Now I just have to add to my growing pool of "Yay me!'s"
