January 1 means resolution time. I'm going to carry over last year's resolutions, which I had mixed success accomplishing. Those resolutions are:
-Lose weight/continue to get in shape.
-Read the Bible all the way through.
-Give more to charity.
-When it comes to media consumption, aim more for depth among the breadth.
Those are all well and good, but if that was last year's list, I need to add to it, right? So let's toss these out there and see what I can do:
-Keep my apartment straightened up more.
It's easy for me to let it go and become a mess. I'm going to tell you upfront that I know this will be tough for me. The desire to do it often isn't there, and time seemed at a premium last year. But I'll try.
-Knit on a regular basis.
It wasn't by design that I did minimal knitting in 2011, but I can do better, especially since I have a project or two in mind.
-Avoid letting election year politics stress me out.
It's inevitable that I won't be able to escape the chatter everywhere about the Presidential campaign, not to mention all the other races. I'm already completely sick of it all, so I need to be mindful of not letting it drive me crazy.
-Catch-all: general personal improvement.
One can dream, right?
