2011 Resolution

In the past, I’ve always made New Year’s resolutions. This year, I simply wasn’t in the mood. I think it had something to do with finding my 2010 resolutions and realizing I’d forgotten all about them, and only accomplished 1 out of 10 (losing my pregnancy weight).


I couldn’t decide whether to skip resolutions this year or come up with something easier, but I finally decided to compromise with myself and set ONE resolution. But it’s kind of a toughie.

I’m wanting to be less lazy and more productive. So my resolution is to make something every day.

As you can see in my brainstorming list, I might make a useful item for my home. I might make time for something important. I might make a dent in laundry I’ve gotten behind in, make amends with a friend, or make progress in the language I’m learning. Whatever it is, it requires me to really DO something every day. Checking email doesn’t count 🙂

What’s your 2011 resolution(s), if any? How have you done at meeting them in the past?

    That’s great! but how come you’re blogging about it every day somewhere else? are you cheating on mamawit? or just don’t want to post that often? I get confused by how many blogs you have sometimes… : )
    But it is a wonderful idea, and I love how it’s not always making a physical thing, sometimes it is just being observant enough to realize that you made someone smile. I like that.

    I am super excited about new years resolutions, (probably I’m like you last year, so we’ll see where it goes) because for the first time I am working on a plan for the year together with my husband. (don’t know why we never thought of it before!) We got some good advice from a friend to build a 3 or 5 year plan for our lives, and we decided to start with a 1 year plan.
    I can’t wait to read about some of the fun things you make this year.

    • I think a blog post a day would be too much for me (and counter”productive” to being “productive”!) so I’m just using an autopost to that tumblr site. So whenever I upload a batch of photos to my computer, whichever ones I tag for my make-it challenge I’ll caption and *ta-da* there’s my record of a year of productivity. I hope!! 🙂 (And Paul says I didn’t explain very cleary that I won’t be posting on it every day, I’ll just have one post FOR each day that’ll all upload whenever I update my pics, every couple weeks).

      I like your picture!!
