After pondering for a few days I realized that year-long resoultions still feel too large. I am not nearly as desperate as I was at this time last year, but I am still keenly aware that I can control very little other than my response to what life throws my way. And it is difficult to resolve to do something when one feels no control over accomplishing it!
So I am breaking things down. My resolution for 2011 is to take significant time for my cyclical goals each month, and to figure out whatever it takes to make sure that I am actually achieving them 90% of the time. I am becoming more and more aware of the fact that my body has certain rhythms for a reason, and it is downright stupid to not work with them and utilize the benefits they offer, even when disguised as negative.
My theme/mantra/whathaveyou for 2011 will be “it is okay to be a failure” but I suspect that needs its own post as it might look just a wee bit negative to those who don’t understand.
I would love to know your 2011 goals. Please comment with them if you like, or if you have posted them elsewhere online leave the link so I can check them out!
And have a wonderful New Year!
