My Resolutions

This year they will be simple for me, it is my theme for 2009. Simplicity.

1. Stop and smell the roses.

The months of November and December were far too hectic and busy for me. Christmas shopping, wedding planning, birthdays, holiday get togethers, non-holiday get togethers... It was madness. To be stress free is the only way I can be the best me. So, I'm going to slow down, journal more, enjoy those clear starry nights. Memorize my husband's face all over again, cuddle my puppy. Listen to my music more, enjoy nesting like before. Buy flowers for our kitchen table. Take advantage of the comfort and joy the little things bring.

2. Be a better friend.

First and foremost, I'm going to try to answer my phone more. I detest my cellular. That ever contant thing my friends complain about is how hard I am to find. How can I be a good friend if I can't be reached? I'm going to start sending cards again, long personal emails, let them in on secrets. Really listen. Spend quality time. Make road trips to visit my long distance friends.

3. Take care of myself more.

I can tell when I need "me" time. It comes like clock work. So more of that. And I'm going to read again, dance again, listen to my ipod more and download all the music that inspires me. I'm going to journal more, decompress the thoughts that are always crowding my brain. Eat more fruits and vegetables, drink more water. Exercise more. Maybe even renew my old love for running. Sleep at least 8 hours a night. Do something with my ever raging creative bug: photo shoots, jewelry, crafting, scrapping. Love more. Hug more.

4. Be a good wife.

Oh hush. When will I ever get to make this my new years resolution again without appearing as if I wasn't a good wife before? Cook nourishing meals for him, spend quality time with him, let go of my silly fears and be more adventurous with him. Bring him down the healthy road with me. Have more tickle wars before bed with him. (Man I love those.) Bring him a beer more often. Bwahaha! Shyeah right. Okay seriously, just continue be aware of my mood and continue to treat him with respect. And never, ever deny him of morning snuggles.
