This year I took a little more time to think about my New Year's
resolutions. I wanted to make sure I really "resolve" to do the
things I come up with. So here goes...
1, To eat "real" food this year. I resolve to eat healthy whole
foods and try to eliminate 99% of processed food. I plan
to continue learning about healthy eating and make changes
in our diet, such as whole wheat flour instead of white.
(I've done this for five months and lost over 30 pounds
so why not do it again in 2011.)
2. To not procrastinate by over thinking decisions. I will
put a time limit on my "thinking" and a due date on my
final decision. I often think about going on vacation
for a whole year and then three days before I go I still
don't have definite plans where to go or where to stay.
3. To reach out to people more. I tend to be a little shy
and enjoy a quiet day alone. So I plan to use my

a great telephone outreach while she was living. She
had a way of keeping everyone connected!
I think three resolutions are enough to work on during the
year, but I have three little "wants" for 20111. I want to build more fun into our lives. We often work
hard all week so we can come home on the weekend and
work hard at home. Work, work, work!
2. I want to stop and recognize beauty everyday. The sky in
the morning is spectacular! The gray clouds in a winter
sky are majestic. I want to feel the "wind" blowing my
hair when I walk down to the mailbox. This is real life!
Stop and live it!
3. I want to take the time to tell people I love them (because
I do), or squeeze their hand because they are special (they
So, this is where my thinking is. I've enjoyed reading all the
New Year's Resolutions on other blogs and I felt like I wanted
to open my heart in this post.
