I've always admired people who make New Year’s resolutions and actually keep them.  I, on the other hand, have never been good at keeping resolutions so a handful of years ago I stopped making them altogether.  This year I've decided to revisit the whole idea, but rather than focus on goals for 2011 I've decided to focus on goals that I'd like to see carry on throughout my life.  Here are my top 3 resolutions:

3.   Cook/bake at least 1 new recipe a month.  This doesn’t sound like much but with my hectic schedule it’s easier said than done…yet still an attainable goal.

2.  Make more time for "me."  Between law school, work, boyfriend, friends, family, and other commitments I often forget to slow down, take a deep breath, and enjoy some time away from all the hustle and bustle.  It may sound selfish, but everyone deserves a little time to themselves.

1.  Remember that “It’s 10% what happens to you, and 90% what you do with it.”  This is the motto that a former undergrad professor of mine challenged his students to live by.  It’s so easy to focus on the bad, but we’re all much happier when we remind ourselves that we are in control of our lives and in the grander scheme of things life is good.

What are your New Year’s resolutions?


  1. I love your resolutions! I've given up on making them, to be honest -- I just break them! But yours are perfect -- attainable but still ambitious.

  2. That's exactly like me!! But thank you, hopefully these resolutions will stick for me this time.

  3. I like your #1. It took me forever to realize this. :)

  4. Yeah I used to think about #1 every day and then forgot about it. Now I think about it every day again and it makes such a difference!
