Thinking About Stuff

I'm just getting back in my groove this week. With all the holiday travel and post holiday travel that filled up the last two weeks of December and the first week of January, I feel like 2010 slipped away with little reflection on my part and 2011 slipped in the same way. Just in the last few days I've had some time to sit and evaluate and ponder....

This year, I'm going for projects as opposed to resolutions. Maybe they're the same thing but "project" sounds less intimidating to me. So one of my projects will be to gather good family photos and display them. This sounds pretty simple, but it might take some time to find the ones I want and group them nicely. It's shocking that save the one engagement photo of the hubby and I upstairs, our house is completely devoid of framed family photos. This will change!

Other goals include:
- cleaning up the basement room by getting some sturdy shelving, throwing junk away and good-willing the rest.

- Stop being late to things.
I don't run ridiculously late but I'm generally 5 - 7 minutes to late to virtually everything. I'm trying to get to the bottom of it and do better at leaving those time sucking tasks like sweeping the kitchen floor behind when it means I'm leaving a friend waiting. I'll keep you posted on this one.

- Mindful eating.
Less dinner in front of the t.v. and more peaceful meals at the table is what I have in mind.
Additionally, I want to focus, when possible, on what my food actually tastes like as well as when I'm full. There's no need to plow through dinner (unless of course, I'm running late - see paragraph above) and go for stuffed when I could stop at satisfied.

Of course there are more things on my list, but who really wants to hear them all? Plus, the more I actually post, the more I'll have to actually work at, so I'll stop there.

Are you pondering your life or being introspective right now? Any resolutions you'd like to share?
I'd really like to hear them. Helps me know I'm not alone in my long list of desires for self betterment.


  1. these are great!! i am COMPLETELY with you on being more punctual & with savoring every bite of food -- you sound just like me! i'm hoping that eating my food slowly will help me to eat less of it :) i've also started eating healthier & it feels amazing!!

  2. Great list.....and amazing PHOTOS! Hugs. xoxo

  3. Lovely list of projects (loving the idea of being 5-7 minutes late!!).
    My 'project' was to NOT buy any clothes for the whole of 2011. I can buy from charity shops and make clothes but that's it. Two weeks in and so far so good...50 weeks to go!
