You’re likely thinking “Resolutions? Uh, Jessica…those should’ve been made about a month ago…”
Well, I wasn’t ready then. And actually, I don’t usually make resolutions. Resolutions just seem so…hopeful. And success at whatever one is resolution-ing doesn’t come from hoping.
It comes from commitment. And dedication. And hard work.
So these aren’t so much resolutions, but rather commitments. Objectives. Goals.
Here is what I am committing to in 2011 (not really in any particular order, except for #1 because that IS #1):
1) Do my best to have the healthiest pregnancy and delivery I can.
In case you didn’t hear, there is a new baby coming in early August.
2) Show proofs of my love.
“There’s no such thing as love; only proof of love.”— Jean Cocteau
3) Take a Photoshop class.
I’ve taught myself as much as I can.
4) Get a description of my services and examples of my work up on my website.
I will no longer treat such an important asset like the housepainter does his house.
5) Not buy junk.
I will spend more to buy quality items that will last longer. I will buy only what I really love, or really need.
6) Get our finances in better order.
#5 will probably help with this one.
