This is a tough question. My resolutions are all the typical blah blah ones that no one ever keeps but it is obligatory to resolve to them anyhow.

But my REAL goals are:

to become more organised. I bought a planner just for the cause. I have a lot of appointments and I'm a scatter brain....not a good combo. In Nov I forgot 2 pretty important appointments...and it forced me to realise I need to be more organised.

get through my operation alive. simple, yet I don't have much control over it.

try to be more positive.


Those are my goals to make 2010 my year! Bring it on!!

Update on my non-New Year's resolution:

I have a date for NYE, but it's not with a boy. A girlfriend of mine could really use the companionship and support this year, so I asked her to be my date instead.

Not sure what we'll do, as both our Disneyland APs have run out, castmember sign-ins are blocked on NYE, and we're both kinda broke, but hey - we've both got a shit-ton of hot clothes and there's always lots of action in OC/LA.

For me want to try to exercise more. Been so busy and tired I have not been making time for that. And of course continue renovating the house as that will be an ongoing project as time and fiances allow.

I've had a bit of a wake up call...

I think I need to be better at drawing boundaries. There are too many times that I do not speak up. Last year's motto was "draw the line in 2009" but I think now it has to be "draw it again in 2010 (and make it stick!)."

Awesome! I love the rhyming resolutions... My friend and I spent hours last year coming up with all kinds of ridiculous rhymes for various new year's resolutions.

Best of luck with the boundaries. Such a hard but important thing. Cheers.

Thanks- it really is. I think not setting firm boundaries stems from how I used to act when I believed I was inferior because I was fat (a belief I had my entire life up until the past 8-10 years or so). It's so hard for me to do somehow. I really need to learn how to identify/get rid of toxic people much faster and more definitively, no matter how it affects them.

Great thread....

My ideas for new years resolutions (which still need to become ingrained in my consciousness for me to really decide to do) are:

1) To reduce stress in my life - I get really busy and obsessed with work and worried about my beautiful but slightly eccentric older mother and neglect finding space to stop and relax.
2) To kiss less frogs and encourage more princes in my life - I'm a shocker, if a man is wearing an invisible sign which says "I am dangerously intense and dynamic and way too sexy which means I can get away with just about anything" then I tend to get a little sidetracked....
3) To change my lifestyle somewhat - see more live music, play more music, hell just play more
4) To move my body more, I love swimming but rarely do it these days.

I have a really hard time with boundaries and once I get them up, not let the person back in because of how it's effecting them. Such a hard one.

May I take your list? lol

My mom's issues have taken over my life and I'm trying to take it back . She doesn't seem to realize I need to take care of myself first. She's a grown woman, yes, she has some medical problems, but does she really want me to put my entire life on hold for her for an unspecified amount of time? I kinda think she does by her actions and words. In a roundabout way she's said that since we're family, I have to give up pretty much everything to take care of her and help her out (she's drained me financially). Wish I could go into the witness protection program to hide from her. lol

Anyway, very good list! Doesn't it seem sad that we have to put, "have more fun" on our New Year's resolution lists?!?

Hey MizzSnakeBite,

I get the mother thing, intensely. I love my Mum to bits, however, she moved out of sydney (where her kids live), is 80, worries us all endlessly and is rather eccentric (artist, does what she like all the time, judgemental but "only" because she loves me). It is draining and a great source of guilt - our whole relationship. I am so not in a position where I can quit work (either financially or for my sanity and future) and go "look after" her. She gets around all right now, but I worry constantly about her and things. Drives me NUTS.

And yes, you are right, it's a little sad we need to list "fun' and "play". HUGS

From experience, what I've read, and from what really organized people have told me, start small. One drawer, just under the bed, one cabinet. When you try to do an entire room, it becomes very overwhelming FAST and tends to make the person give up. Take baby steps, you have all year .

You WILL get through your operation. I've decreed it, so it will happen

Being more positive is hard, especially if you have chronic health problems. Try to be more silly on occasion; that can help put a smile on your face . Using smilies helps too hehehe

Continuing along with the theme I have been sticking to for the past few years, which has been "cleaning house". But not just in the obvious sense of decluttering, organizing, finding new homes for things I don't need or use anymore, as well as home improvement. Also, in the sense of cleaning house on a more personal level as far as getting rid of habits, relationships, behavior patterns, lifestyle choices, and ways of thinking that don't contribute to my life in a positive way.

Ok I know I'm weird because I ENJOY organising a whole room at a time, lol. I usually do it when I'm manic as its the only time pain doesn't stop me. I am totally starting small. I bought a diary (a planner) to sort out my appointments cos I have a lot of them lately and I keep missing them!

YAY. I get to live I have a good feeling about it, but death scares the pants off me!

I am a very silly person. I used to be more-so before I got married. I'm starting to be more silly though....even if no one else laughs it can be like my inside joke with myself, lol.

Life rocks and I love it


omg seriously...smileys count as images?!?!?!?! I had to delete some of your smileys before I could post....sorry.

In years past, some of my resolutions have stuck. A few years back, I vowed to not take crap from anyone, and that has rung true. Feels good, too.

2009's resolutions did not stick as much as I would have liked...it was a tremendously difficult year.

So, re-do:

-Don't get so worked up about little things. Water under the bridge, self.
-MORE FRUIT AND VEGGIE PLS.

There you go.

LOL. My un-new-year's-resolution thread has morphed. That's okay, as we're nearly halfway through December.

My real, actual NY resolutions?

- To move back to OC, back to Berkeley, or to San Francisco.
- Get more reliable employment and save more money.
- Try to be kinder to myself. I did a really good job of that this year until...I don't know, the last couple of months.
- Stop dating/sleeping with assholes.
- Reprioritize my websites: redesign what needs redesigning and pulling the stuff that's outlived its usefulness.
- Finish my reading list. John Adams and Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna the Younger, I'm really, really, really sorry.
- Plan a trip to France, Italy, and/or Russia (see saving more money, above). Even if i don't GO in 2010, I'd at least like to make some firm projections.

Yes, once I decree it, it happens

Yes, death scares the pants off of me too...........especially since they take your pants off when you die.

No worries about deleting my beloved smilies....

My real, actual NY resolutions?


- Plan a trip to France, Italy, and/or Russia (see saving more money, above). Even if i don't GO in 2010, I'd at least like to make some firm projections.
Note to self: Practice stretching every day so that I can fit in Tania's baggage.

P.S. My cousin lived in Russia for......probably over a year? He taught English. When Russia and Georgia starting having......spats...he headed off to Spain. Still there, next will be China I believe.

If you go, I'm sure you'll go to the Hermitage. lf you do, block out loads of time for it. I was there in 1989 and only had five hours (it was back when you had to be with an Intourist guide and we only had a certain amount of time). I walked away as they locked the doors for the night wishing so much I had at least two or three days. What an incredible place.

Sweet! I'm not really a super travelling fanatic or anything -- but going to St. Petersburg and visiting the Hermitage is on my short list. I was in Moscow in the mid-90s and minored in Russian lit in college. Good stuff.

Also on the short list: India, South America, and New York City.

Definitely the Hermitage. But even more I want to visit Tsarskoye Selo (Pushkin) and Peterhof. If I can swing it, it would also be nice to visit Ukraine - I want to go to Yalta for new Livadia Palace (Romanov connection PLUS FDR/Churchill ties too)...

Very cool. Russian lit sounds meaty! I would love to go back to both places, though St. Petersburg especially. It was lovely and not as modern and concrete and boxy as Moscow. And the Winter Palace that houses the Hermitage was just--wow. I was working in London at the time and castled out from visiting other sites and was still bowled over. I was there in October and it was just crisp and cold enough to make it easy to feel the ambiance of what historic winters might have felt like but without bitter cold or snow.

I'd love to see Peterhof and the gardens and fountains. Are you a Churchill fan? Have you read Jennie?
