No Resolutions, Just a Wish List

Last year I made some parenting resolutions which, I’m proud to say, I mostly kept. This year, I’ve decided to not do any resolutions and instead allow myself to have a wish list of sorts.

My 2011 Wishlist

  • Yoga – Once upon a time I worked at a yoga studio, and in the process developed a fairly regular yoga practice of my own. Unfortunately, my physical yoga practice fell by the wayside once I moved to the city I currently live in. I miss the way I felt during and after a yoga session, which is, challenged then peaceful.
  • Read more books – I used to be a voracious book reader. Nowadays, most of my reading is of online articles and blogs. This is not a bad thing since I’ve learned so much this way, however, I miss reading for pure pleasure. Plus, I want to encourage Baby E to have a love of books. I’ve already reintroduced myself to library hold request system and Baby E got some new board books for Christmas. I think we’re off to a good start on this item.
  • Experiment with new hairstyles – When it comes to beauty and fashion I’m mostly low maintenance. However, I am intrigued by the funky loc hairstyles I come across online. I think it’s time I try something new.
  • Learn more about photography – I can’t afford a shiny, new DSLR camera but I have a neat point and click camera with manual controls. It’s well past time I learned how to use those controls. In order to brush up on my skills, I decided to participate in Project 365. Project 365 is a challenge to take a picture a day for 365 days. Check out my pics here.

I’m giving myself permission to add to or delete from this list throughout the year. However, I’m hopeful that the deletions will be few to nonexistent.

What’s on your wish list?

  1. what a wonderful idea to make a wish list! Photography is on my list as well. thanks for info on project 365

  2. I too used to yoga regularly. And read a lot too! I have a stack of books on my bedside table from TWO CHRISTMASES AGO! 😛
    I support you!!

  3. My wishlist is yoga-related too: at least 10 minutes daily. Nothing too strenuous or complex. Just a little something yoga every day.

    I have lots of wishlist items in terms of overall fitness but mainly to do a chin-up. Something about getting up there seems like it would signify a real milestone in my life.

    And then I want to work on my writing in some kind of focused way.

    I like the wish list idea.
