ready, set?... 2011

After much consideration I finally have my resolutions for the year 2011. 
For 2010 I basically went back to my previous ones, analyzed them, decided to take some off some and add some, for this year I decided not to look back and just do what my heart feels like. Also for this year coming up I'm gonna try to be more in tune with what I need and what I want, so it goes something like this...
-Exercise more is a classic resolution, isn't it? So I just won't use it, and it's not because I don't need to exercise (God knows I do!) but because that just should be part of our daily life and not something that I need to resolute about, so instead this year, my resolution goes more like; Have more discipline. And that is Resolution #1.
- Eat less is also not one of my resolutions, mainly because I just love to eat, so my resolution instead will be Eat in smaller portions but more times a day and healthy as well, resolution #2
- Stay away from negative people just doesn't cut it, mainly because it is hard and some times you just have to deal with them whether you like it or not. So instead, I am going to focus this year on; Irradiating love and positive vibes with my mind and my spirit, Resolution #3.
- Now, the main question is; How am I going to irradiate love and positive vibes? Well, that takes me to my resolution #4, find time to quiet my mind (through meditation, silent moments and metaphysical thinking) and spirit. It seems to me that life is so hectic nowadays, I am constantly thinking, talking, worrying, analyzing, etc, so this year I really need to find the time to quiet my mind and my spirit, and to me a quiet mind/spirit = God, peace, harmony and love.
- Work harder is also not on my list, because this year I am going to concentrate on less procrastination at work which basically is more like a "reverse psychology" of  "work harder", but oh well, that will be my resolution #5.
- Last year one my favorite ones was to read a book a month, well, I don't think I read 12 books but I did read a lot, so that one I intent to keep but I am going to try to go beyond my normal subject/styles of books and explore new areas; resolution #6.
- Resolution #7 is to be more organized/neat around the house but specially around the kitchen, I know this is a constant issue for my husband about me and I figure if I add it here and make my "messiness" public I will make a real effort to be better.
- I love to travel, I need to travel, it's just in blood and in my heart to go places, meet people, see the world, so this year another one of my resolutions is going to be even organized with our finances, save up for a little scape with my husband, resolution #8.
- Resolution #9; give, give, give, give... whether is love, advice, money, material things that I don't need but others might, I feel that the more I give, the more that comes back to me. In my heart there is a HUGE special place for animals and I would love to volunteer more for them... I have lot's of ideas that hopefully will develop into amazing project in 2011.
- My last resolution (#10) of the year is a "shared one" with my husband, we have been talking about a resolution of Weekly Date Night, and although all the details are not quite set up yet, basically it's going to be; One of us gets to choose a date night a week (no matter where we go, as long as it's out of the house) and one week he gets to choose and the next week I get to choose, the person that doesn't get to choose that week has to do what the other has chosen! It's going to be fun : )
I am all set to start partying this year and continue into the next... We are having a party tonight at home and it should be lots of fun!!!
So, here's to everybody having a wonderful end to 2010 and that the year 2011 will be filled with good intentions, love, health, peace, harmony and abundance of blessings!!!

What a great selection of resolutions. I love your approach to them - for most people it's usually something that's gone down the drain a week later!
I particularly like no. 3. about how staying away from negative people doesn't cut it. It can be ever so annoying, but we wouldn't grow without resistance!

And good luck with Weekly Date Night - what a sweet resolution.

Thanks so much for your generous sharing Sunshine.
Have tons of fun tonight!
