Work harder to land more freelance gigs, eventually enough to solely support myself doing so.Finish my novel — or at least get very close!Love more.Think of others more than myself.Lose 40lbs (by summertime!).Keep saving money.

    Happy 2012!! :)

    Great resolutions everybody ;)

    I am fairly good at keep my closet organized, and I am a gym junkie, so my resolution this year is in regards to my relationship.

    Boys and girls are so different, and my man and I are figuring that out the tough way! My resolution is to be patient and understanding and not always trying to be in control of everything all the time! I think alot of us would make better partners if we could exercise this kinda behavior, but much easier said than done!!

    Happy New Year!

    3. Write “”just because”” notes to people for no reason other than to encourage.

    3. save up for a trip to bali

  • Monica Castillo

    1. Be more spontaneous
    2. Stop being such a “”tourist””…revel in where I’m at instead of snapping pictures
    3. Stop holding on to a past relationship
    4. Start only dream of one day being published

  • Angela Domenico

  • soupforthegirlysoul
  • Stacie Grissom

    That’s a cute bow ring! :)

    What my mom gave me for Christmas– a suitcase table! :)

  • Amy Christine

    Great list! I read this as I am sending out thank you notes, which is on my new years resolution list too! Some of my others are: -Travel more -Cook more -Ace my classes (I’m in medical school;) -Be more decisive. Happy 2012!

  • Amy Christine

    And make more fun plans (brewery’s, new restaurant dinner dates, bowling, hiking…:) as well as finding something athletic i like that will keep me in shape (it’s down to swimming or biking!)

  • Tiffani Stuart

    My New Year’s Resolutions:

    1) Take One day at a time

    2) Don’t let last year’s heartache ruin what this year has to offer

    3) Take more vacation/stay-cations

    4) Have Mimosas every Saturday morning.

    5) Stay with reading the Bible & keep striving to do what God wants & have a deeper relationship w/Him.

    6) Of course- Get back on track & lose weight again… Get over the pain of gaining it back b/c of a guy… (Ya’ll know what Im talking about ha ha)

    7) Get & maintain the classic “”Staples”” of my wardrobe. Pretty much everyone says it’s the same things (LBD, white button down shirt,Nice blazer…etc) but I’ve never had them all at once.

    8) Spend more money on clothes & food.

    9) Be more balanced as far as putting myself ahead of others. I’m notorious about putting others first; but sometimes its to my own detriment. I love to give, but half the time I’d never spend as much on myself, as I spend on other people.

    10) Get organized in my apartment, as in cleaning & decorating.

    Blessings this year, everyone

    2012

  • Tiffani Stuart

    ** # 8) Spend more money on clothes, THAN on food… I buy lots of good food, eat at nice restaurants, but waaaay too much! I need to spend more money on clothes, instead of eating out as much!

  • mystylevita.com

    I love these resolutions. I’ve become a big fan of Thank you notes. I think they’re great to receive and always make my day, so why shouldn’t i send more! I also want to send more cards in general. A gf of mine just started college in her late 20′s and I know her first week isgoing to be crazy. Sending her a pick me up card will make her day!

    And brunch with the girls at home is my new project. I love entertaining at home!

  • soupforthegirlysoul
  • Kimberly Reed

    My New Years resolutions are to get a new job in Medical Sales,..spend less, save, save, save more for retirement. Work out more!

  • Aja Doe

    2011 was pretty hard on me, to say the least (new job, moving, first year of marriage with physical separation due to job…etc etc).

    Here are my resolutions for this year:

    1. Spend as much time as possible with spouse (he’s moving up with me next month :D)

    2. Rent a new place where it’s peaceful and quiet ( hope this horse farm is still available when my lease is up)

    3. Read more books (I didn’t actually read many books for fun at all in 2011)

    4. Try a new hobby (I’m going to try muy thai tomorrow actually, I’ve always wanted to try martial arts)

    5. Travel (I love it so much, and never got to do as much as I would like in 2011)

    6. Eat at least 2 servings of veggies daily (I normally eat quite healthy but lack in the veggie area)

    So cheers to 2012 :D

  • soupforthegirlysoul
