Lets get personal; New Year's Resolutions

I have several New Year's Resolutions this year. I spend quite a bit of time contemplating my resolutions because I want to take them seriously. Even if I just choose one to commit to, I want to make sure that I do just that; commit.

Commitment: an agreement or pledge to do something in the future.

Commitment however is something that takes patience and perseverance. By writing out my resolutions I am hoping that this will be one more way to hold myself accountable to my personal goals. My resolutions are by no means easy {for me} and that is why they are my resolutions. They will take great effort and time-perhaps even the entire year.

*I want to build my network. I love connecting with all of you and it truly brings joy to my day. I want to continue doing so on my blog but also connecting in other ways whether that be through handmade, creative outlets such as conferences or other in person meet-ups. I will also be planning fun series throughout the year. If you have not done so already, be sure to nominate your favorite blog of 2010 !

**I have never been taught how to save. My parents were not necessarily financially irresponsible, they just did not spend much time teaching my siblings and I the importance of saving money. Sure I learned about working hard to pay for things-but not saving. I want to learn to manage my money this year and save.

***I want to become more organized. I often feel all over the place and I think I talk about this often. In all aspects of my life-I am all over the place. I am extremely organized at work; however personally my administrative items are in a disarray in piles in my closet, my laptop bag, everywhere. It is hard to manage-hard to focus-and I really need to get it together as D would say.

****Gym. Since July I have not stepped foot in the gym. Such a disgrace. I love going to the gym. I am a different person since my attendance has dropped. I use the excuse that I am exhausted by my job and that I have no time due to work. I need to put the excuses aside and just do it...

I am comfortable stopping at 4 resolutions. If I can accomplish any or [all] of these, I would be proud of myself.

What are your resolutions? Do you typically stick to them? Do you take New Year's Resolutions seriously?

Let's link up and share!

Great idea to blog your resolutions. Announcing your goals to other people is such a great way to hold yourself accountable and make reaching your goals more likely. I'll have to think about mine.... be back later to link up!
