Those Dreaded Resolutions

Every year I struggle with New Year's resolutions. On the one hand, it's probably a good thing to state your intentions for the year ahead. On the other hand, another set of obligations to live up to.

So here goes with some general intentions for 2010, ones that are important to me and seem reasonable:
  • Limit personal internet at work. I think this one needs no explanation, right?
  • More sewing.
  • Attend more ASG activities. My attendance in 2009 was abysmal. I want to attend most of the monthly general membership meetings and most of the Material Girls meetings.
  • Health maintenance. Ideally, I have about 10 pounds that I'd like to lose. So I want to eat in a more healthy manner in 2010 and make more effort to exercise.
  • Explore new career opportunities. Maybe it's the Seven Year Itch, or maybe my current field has changed in a way I don't like so much. But it doesn't hurt to take a look and see what else is out there.
Generally, 2010 will be the year of treating myself better. I didn't do that in 2009, and I've been worn out for most of the year. Therefore, more "me"--self care, making myself happy, etc.

Hey, the best investment is in yourself! Best wishes for a very "me-filled" 2010!

Just keep blogging!

Having seen you model a few pieces, I am not in agreement with the 10 lbs but it's your call:)

I have yet to post my 2010 sewing goals or any personal resolutions. I actually quit doing resolutions, but have liked tracking my sewing goals. Happy New Year and look forward to seeing more of your sewn garments.

I like "intentions" better than "resolutions". I guess "resolutions" have come to me, for me, to mean goals I have until the 10th of January."Intentions" sound more doable. I hope 2010 is filled with beautiful fabric, a job you love and plenty of self care.

A very admirable set of intentions! Hope 2010 is a great year for you.
