My Resolutions

In the past, I have had trouble setting goals for myself. I tended to expect outrageous things from myself, things that I would never expect from another human being. I would either end up shattered by my inability to reach said goals or worn thin attempting (and sometimes succeeding in) achieving them.

This year, I want to break the pattern. I made a few generalized, simple resolutions for myself. Resolutions that I can be excited about. Last January, my one resolution was to lose weight. I didn't care about anything else. This year, I have chosen to enjoy life - all aspects of life: food, friends, family, activities, etc. I can already tell that '09 is going to be a good fantastic year.


What are your resolutions for 2009?

What great resolutions for the new year! Here’s wishing you a Happy New Year full of more delicious eats. I’m looking forward to future posts from The Summertree Cafe in 2009!

Happy New Year! Good luck with your resolutions!!

Chelsea  

Happy New Year! That's a perfect resolution, and I'm sure one you'll be able to stick to. I'm not really a resolutiony person; going vegan is the only one I've ever stuck with!

great resolutions, they're so positive! happy new year!:D

Sophie  

Well said :D. I use the bagged cheese from whole foods, or even their brand of mozzarella that comes in a cube. I'm also quite picky about mozzarella, some cheeses are just too mild or even too salty!

Amira

Those are great resolutions, I might just steal them!

I have too have sometimes come close to burning out by unrealistic expectations of myself. This year I wanted to choose a word to live by, or rather to create a theme around which my life would evolve. I've chosen two words, peace and harmony. Nice post and nice blog.

Best. Resolution. Ever! Mine is a bit less glamorous, I want to try new ingredients and new foods I've been to skeptical to try until now.

About the photography lighting set, he got it from ebay. I love it!

They sound like good resolutions, I used to be just the same, the only resolution I have ever kept is to not make any. I am still working on my goals for the year.
Happy new year

Hey Harriet  

A very happy new year to you! I no longer make resolutions because I never keep them, but I really like yours. So I think I'll make that my goal also. Enjoying life sounds perfect to me!
