I Resolve To...

Two years ago I stole a rather lengthy resolution list (really love this list and may return to it soon) and faithfully kept at it throughout the year and accomplished some fun and great things. Last year I shortened the list thinking it would be great to just focus on a few things and failed in spectacular fashion. I guess I am just one of those people who needs a big long list to motivate me into action. This year I have been so inspired by the many resolution lists that I am reading around the blog world that I've stolen some of your resolutions--hope you don't mind--to create my 2010 list of resolutions:

1. Read the Old Testament (was going to pick the New Testament because it is shorter but I decided to go with the OT since we are studying it in Sunday School this year)

2. Read the
Book of Mormon again

3. Read the Gospel Principles manual.

4. Drink 5 cups of water daily--I know that it is supposed to be more than that but I am a water drinker so I'm just trying to be realistic--and so far it is working out for me

5. 3 30 minute workouts a week (to start in February--cause I'm lame like that)

6. Declutter my bedroom (I've decluttered my bookcase, I've decluttered my blog following list, and now it is time to move on to the real clutter problem in my life)

7. Organize clothes--get rid of what I don't wear and what I don't love

8. Create 4 new music mixes

9. Read 12 nonfiction books

10. Complete
Young Women Personal Progress

11. Learn to sew a pillow

12. Learn to sew a skirt (I've had the material for a skirt and a pillow for over a year and have done nothing with it)

13. Write and mail 12 thank you notes (because mail is wonderful and thank yous are wonderful)

14. Send Christmas cards

15. Compile a collection (40) of tried and true recipes (1/2 of which will be vegetarian)

16. Complete Christmas shopping and wrapping before December 1st

17. Declutter bedroom (cause I will need to do this at least twice this year so I'm putting it down twice)

18. Organize clothes (again I'll need to do this at least twice this year)

19. Wake up, shower, get dressed at 7:30 every Sunday--I have the dreaded 1pm worship time on Sundays this year and I know if I don't get up Sunday mornings will just be a waste--worked so nicely this last Sunday that I'm thinking of not dreading the 1pm time slot

20. Read each month's
Ensign cover to cover

21. Eat 2 fruits and 2 veggies everyday--I'm going to struggle on this one

22. Read 1 poem a day (love, love, love doing this)

23. Memorize the Gettysburg Address (I knew it once and thought it would be nice to know it again)

24. Memorize 1 poem

25. Visit 1 spot I've never been to before

26. Take a hike with my family

27. Visit a museum(s) 6 times--at least 3 different museums

28. Bake fresh bread weekly

29. Wear

30. Visit the
temple at least 24 times this year

That's amazing stuff you have there. I just want to get a settled feeling for 2010. It will be a challenge as lengthy as your list. Keep us posted on your progress :)

I love all your goals. Really, you are such an inspiration to me. I plan to track my goals on the side of my blog like you did a couple of years ago. Accountability. We may have to come and visit that restaurant you were telling me about. Who knows what will happen. But I need a read list from you. You are the expert in this area. Suggestions please?

I sure love your list. :) I'm going to incorporate some of them into my life. :) Thanks.
