New Years Resolutions/Goals/Intentions Link Up!

by Susan

2010 - New YearOkay, I just looked back at my New Years Resolution List for 2009 and well… can I just copy and paste the list and ask for a redo???


Here’s my list from last year:

  1. Enjoy each day and savor each moment with my girls.

    (This is always my top goal in life. And I will say that I think I did a pretty good job of this in 2009. During the year, I decided to go offline on weekends and focus on family time. I’m going to continue this for 2010.)

  2. Lose a few holiday pounds and get in shape.

    (Okay, I think last January I did shed a few pounds, but over the fall I gained several more. Stopping nursing has been terrible for my waistline and January is the month I’m trimming it off. For. Sure.)

  3. Organize and manage my projects more effectively.

    (Ugh. I am still disorganized. I’m not even bothering to resolve to get more organized… INSTEAD, I’m focusing on finishing current projects and wrapping up loose ends everywhere.)

  4. Take more video of my girls.

    (Again, taking more video and photos is a big priority. Not only of my kids, but of me too. The last couple months I’ve hidden from the video camera and I’ve been terribly absent even from our own site Say It Face To Face. I’ve got to get my face in front of the camera again.)

  5. Read and comment on more blogs.

    (I’m constantly trying to do more blog commenting… I will continue to increase my commenting in 2010.)

Okay, so what about you???

Are you making any resolutions or goals or intentions for 2010? Did you make any in 2009 and if so, how did you do with those?

Link up and tell all!

I wanna lose 60 pounds this coming year. I also want to learn to be more patient and take out time for me

I’m right there with you on the get fit. I’ll stop nursing in a couple months and I know that means I’ll instantly add a couple pounds.

Some of those are the same. I know I need to spend more time commenting on other blogs. I think it will help me interact with my readers and get to know other bloggers better

I say go for it – just pretend you never wrote the list last year! Great idea – and good luck.

Happy New Year. :)

Reading and commenting on more blogs is one of my goals too. In 2009 I was so overwhelmed with blogging, especially keeping up with all my favorite blogs, but this year I am going to do better!

Re-doing resolutions is something we’ve all had to do… nearly annually! — LOL!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Linking a little late, as we’ve been in and out of town a lot for the past week or two. But my last post of 2009 was certainly appropo to this post!

14 Stephanie January 5, 2010 at 6:50 pm

I think all of your resolutions are MY resolutions too. :)

I also want to read more books, spend more time intentionally teaching my 3-year-old to read, pray more, and make more money. ;)
