I don't do resolutions. Every year since as far back as I can remember I've had New Years resolutions and I've failed miserably at keeping them. or working towards them. Or for that matter even remembering what they were. They were always along the lines of lose 50 pounds. Stop smoking. Never eat chocolate again. So I decided not to do resolutions.
I don't do bucket lists. This implies I will be dying soon and I'd rather not. And I'd rather not think about it. (evenafter2weeksofwinterbreakwithtattletalechildren HA!) Plus I kinda get the feeling that bucket list only came about or got popular after the movie bucket list and that right there is a no go.
I will set a list of goals for myself. Lists, oh how I love thee. I can make lists and accomplish things AND CROSS THEM OFF and feel so good about myself. It's how I make it through the day happily accomplishing things. So I made my self a list of goals for 2012.
Here is said list:
Some are specific goals like learn to knit socks, I can start this right now. Seeking sponsorship is a goal I will work on long term over the next few months as well as getting the house in order. I can plan on putting up foods from our land, I can buy seeds, onion set and locate a weaner pig and cull calf to raise for meat. Once I can get a shovel in the ground we're ready to go and another goal is met.
I have a LIST!! It's all about word choice, resolution? meh. Bucket list? bleck. List of Goals? YES YES YES. What works for you?
Goals? Bucket List? Resolution?
Peace and Love--
