Resolutions 2019

We’re in the last few days of vacation slowly preparing to get back into the busy days of school and work. It has been nice to wake up to the sun peaking through the blinds. No alarms, no rush to get ready just easing into the day. Some days grey and rainy but wonderful just the same. It has been nice binge watching new and old television shows, movie and game nights galore. Few early evenings were spent in the kitchen making sweet potato pies and chocolate cookies that rarely made it to the next day. Ending 2018 was spent with ones I love hanging on with heaving eyes trying to make it to midnight. If you’re wondering I did in-fact make it. I could not have asked for better people to spend that time with.

In this morning of 2019 I am excited about the things to come. The positive changes of life as if I am seeing the new year with the optimism of youth. In looking forward to the new and exciting magic of life sometimes we must look backward taking inventory of things that helped shape our present and exhale in serenity that we’ve made it through. I will spare you the exhausting details as there are so much I am still going through and learning to process. I will tell you there has been loss, near loss, injuries, weddings, and births. Life has its way of serving curve balls nearly knocking you off its axis testing your balance. May be that is what I am still needing to find. That “perfect” balance. To help keep me focused I decided this year I would share my 2019 Resolutions to not only put my intentions into the universe as they say (speaking them into existence) but to find them and hold myself to it. I am typically a quiet goal setter, a shy goal setter. As one of my resolutions states it is time to do more of the things I dreamed of, to step out of my comfort zone.

Here are my resolutions in no particular order:

  1. Read more (never stop learning)
  2. Watch less television
  3. Write more
  4. Help my daughter navigate the trials of youth
  5. Take weekend trips – explore more of the Pacific Northwest
  6. Get back to Yoga
  7. Meditate
  8. Less is more (learn to live with less)
  9. Waste less
  10. Shop small – Buy local and with purpose
  11. Define my style as a photographer
  12. Execute photo ideas for portraits of cousins
  13. Cook more
  14. Save money (for travel and a house)
  15. Learn to be more comfortable sharing my life
  16. Open online shop
  17. Work on professional goals
  18. Step out of my comfort zone
  19. De-clutter – get rid of “stuff”
  20. Nourish my daughter’s creativity
  21. Love more -forgiveness
