Resolution time?

Most people make resolutions concerning their health.  I'm already pretty committed there - 4-5 days a week at the gym, with two a days twice a week (yeah, in the perfect week, I make it to the gym 7 times).  I eat pretty healthy, although I could cut out ice cream entirely (not good for my mental health).  So as far as that goes, I just need to keep going like I have.  And I think Josh will help me keep up with it.  My only new goal is to be able to run a 5K.

My resolution sounds awful - I resolve to be more selfish.  Didn't my momma teach me better? But let me explain.  Most of the time, Josh and I are doing things with other couples or friends on the weekends.  We used to have date night (just us, nice night out) but it has fallen away.  After a fantastic day where I had been selfish and said no one else was invited, I realized that it was important to me.  So I've resolved to be say no to other people coming along more often - at least once a month.

What did you resolve to do?  Did you take the opportunity that a new year presents?  Did you go with a "traditional" resolution?

Goodbye 2011, Hello 2012

When 2011 started, I was still heartbroken and missing someone.  April 17, 2011... that all changed.  It defined the rest of the year, simply because I am happy.  Extremely happy.  Others are waiting for an event.  I know it will happen in time, and I'm not in tooo much of a hurry for it.  I'm content that I'm loved and that I can love in return.

2012 started fantastically - a kiss from the one I love, surrounded by friends, and the hope that this year will be better than the last.  I was lucky enough to attend the weddings of many friends last year.  Seeing others so happy and in love just makes me feel luckier to be able to love.

Hoping 2012 is a great year for everyone!
