This year I want to make my resolution more of a project for myself than just something I think I’ll do and don’t ever get around to it. I came up with some decent ideas, each being something I really need to do, but only one would be what I focus on. The suggested resolutions:

  1. learn a new language (probably German but also French or Mandarin)
  2. focus on music (singing, cello, piano, etc)
  3. focus on writing (this, along with being cute, were my resolutions last year)
  4. only think positively (a lot of negative thinking last year)
  5. lead a more active life (not just physically speaking)

All are things I am trying very hard to obtain, and honestly, if I could keep myself to a routine, it would be something like this: wake up at 5 a.m. and exercise for an hour/hour and a half, be to work at 7 a.m., take lunch to walk the dogs, get home at 4 p.m. to practice instruments, eat a light healthy/organic dinner, study languages and read nonfiction (graphic design, history) until 8 or 9 p.m., then read for leisure until 10 p.m. to do it all over again. I’d alternate the study time with writing time because I really want to get my stories moving again. But I just can’t get myself to do all this! It’s so sad. 🙁

So, I asked Herr what of the resolutions I should make the official one. He decided leading a more active lifestyle would lead to the other ones (and honestly, I am getting the lethargic I-sit-at-a-desk-all-day body shape), so now I am supposed to be leading a more active lifestyle.

I started out walking the dogs right before we got major snow and ice problems and could not safely continue doing so (getting pulled by dogs on ice equals big ouchies). We are also performing in musicals, and that keeps us pretty busy. We are building a gym and music studio now, and we’ve both taken exercising very seriously. I do it right away in the morning so I can continue to sleep while I do stretches. 😛 Hey, it works well!

I am curious to find out what everyone else’s resolutions are, and how they are progressing. Herr’s is to stay fit, so that’s obviously going well with our new gym and my own goal. 😉
