Hello, 2012... you're here already?

That was fast.
2012 came so quickly.
I pondered all of my ideas for new years resolutions while I was showering earlier, and nothing come to mind that I am determined to set as my resolution.
I'm naturally a goal setter.  I've always been that way.  I set daily goals, short term, and long term goals and refer to them usually pertaining to work and life in general.  I think I will just stick to that routine.

But my resolution for this year is this... live each day the best I can.

We can't control lots of things in our lives, but we control ourselves, our attitude, actions, and reactions.  Happiness is our choice and typically I try to make decisions that will make me happy.
Each new year is a fresh start... but so is every day.

This year, I want to work a little harder at facing my fears.  I want to forgive people more easily and not sweat the small stuff.  I want to continue to recognize and appreciate all of the amazing people in my life.

Of course, I also want to remember to eat healthy, take my vitamins, and take the dogs on a few more walks.
What about you?
Any New Year's Resolutions... or revelations?

Happy New Year!

I had a low key NYE too, and I wouldn't have had it any other way! Sparkling wine, board games, and karaoke with my man & some close friends. Perfect! And good luck in the new year--I think your approach is perfectly reasonable. :)

Love your resolution! All we can do is take it one day at a time. Mine is similar-just to stay in the moment and enjoy it instead of always preparing for the next thing. Have a great day!

I also want to work on forgiveness, and not holding grudges! And your NYE looks fun, I think low-key nights are the best! Happy New Year!
