What are your new years resolutions for 2009?

I was amused at how different my new years resolutions are from last years.

Last year I went for the classic.. “Lose weight”, “Exercise more”, and “Work harder”

But this year I’ve gone for a different approach. So far, I have decided on:
– learn how to play the guitar
– make more friends
– give myself more me-time & pamper myself more

What are your new years resolutions? Do you think you will stick to them?

    I like yours!

    Mine are something like:

    Learn how to sketch/draw
    Drink more red wine
    Write more
    Make a daily, conscious effort to love myself more

    I’d also really like to pet a giraffe- I think they’re so cute!

    Congrats to you on ditching the cliched, self-deprecating resolutions and creating more positive, productive and fun ones for the new year! It’s impossible to be too good to yourself!

    I plan on taking life as is. Meaning when you pick up sand and it just falls through your hand you accept it for what it is. Im going to try and not compare my life to my friends for what they have and what i don’t have. T.I.’s Live Your Life is my song Inspiration for 2009 because it shows that i need to cherish my life and not materialistic things. Some people have it worse than me or are dead. Also Work on the relationship with my 7 year old son he can be very disrespectful at times and Happiness and Joy to

    I decided to make my new years resolutions more specific measureable

    Drink at least 4 cups of pure water a day(hopefully more)
    start drinking de-caffeinated coffee (limit caffeine intake)
    Get into a new outfit that is right now two sizes too small.
    After I do these for at least 6 months, I will award myself with a new dress.

    That’s it.

  26. Jenn said:

    I want to be healthier, lose weight, and get in better shape.
    But since those are such vague goals I decided to set more concrete realistic goals to help me accomplish that.
    So I made my goals the following:
    1) Become a vegetarian.
    2) Run a 5k race in the summer.
    3) Run a 10k race in the fall.
    And I also want to get involved with a local charity. I just need to research one and find a good one!

    And I decided not to wait until new year’s to start.
    I haven’t had meat in a month and I have been going to the gym at least 5 days a week for a month also. This way I gave myself a good start to the year. I’ve already been maintaining my resolutions and the year just started! It’s good to have a positive start I think!

  27. volcomchiickii808 said:

    hmm well mine are to
    1.) let go of the boy i love, and let myself be free
    2.) grow my nails out
    3.) lose some weight
    4.) write my own songs and compose music for them
    5.) paint at least 4 more pieces of artwork
    6.) use my medication everyday (im kinda bad at that, i always forget)
    7.) stay healthy
    8.) learn to love myself the way i am
    9.) not give in to fights so easily, and speak my mind when i’m unhappy about something
    10.) work harder at school

    haha, i’ve been thinking of loads more but i think i should stop at 10. ;]
    and yes, i think i’m going to stick with at least 5.. that’s my goal, actually.
    good luck and happy new year!!
