This year, I'm not making any one resolution; I'm not even making multiple resolutions. Given past precedent, my resolutions are only made to be broken. Instead, I'm going to follow Halsey of Spunky Junky's lead, and let one word set the tone for the entire year:
I know it's a little vague, but isn't that kind of the point? A lot of things can be filed under "progress"--that's the beauty of this method. As long as I'm moving forward, making progress, I'll be able to count the year a success. (The lazy girl's way around a resolution?)
What am I planning on making progress in? Lots of things!
I'm going to get more organized. My closet and my crafting supplies are woefully unkempt. It would be nice to be able to find things when I really need them, cutting down on multiple craft supply purchases.
I'm hoping to make progress through my bookshelves. At last count, I had more than 25 unread books waiting for their turn to shine. I'm a book hoarder--it's a sickness.
The other thing I'm looking for progress on? Well, it's not very original. Everyone and their mother vows to lose weight at the beginning of the year. It lacks creativity, but yeah, Mr. Goodlaff and I want to make progress towards being healthier. I'm not going to train for a marathon, and we probably won't stop cooking recipes that we know are bad for us (give up cheese and bread? yeah right!), but we're going to make some smarter choices for the sake of our health.
Lofty goals, but definitely worth it.
So, here we go. 2012 is all about progress!
