Did I achieve my 2011 Resolutions?

Is anybody else having a bit of difficulty thinking up some New Year Resolutions? To give me some ideas, I thought I'd look at the ones I made at the beginning of this year and see how well I did:

I want to be more creative this year…

And was I? Uh… it's difficult to say. I tried new recipes. I wrote new fairy tales. I experimented with my drawing skills. I even wrote a new novel. So, yes, in a way. And yet, still not as creative as I would have liked.

I want to try some new things this year, and keep a record of each experience...

I did try new things! Some unintended, some not as successful as hoped, but most thoroughly enjoyable! Yes, there were one or two things I wanted to do that did not happen, but I'm quite pleased with my new experiences in 2011. As for keeping a record, I'm still working on that…:)

I want to be healthier this year…

I think I achieved this, but there's still plenty of room for improvement. Jon and I started the year by going on weekly walks. During the latter half of the year, this was not quite as regular an event as it was supposed to be, but in the last few days (not including this one) we have been for walks every single day, including walking to church and back on Christmas Day, going to admire nearby Christmas lights, enjoying a delightful walk along a river, visiting the Avebury Stone Circles and other megalithic sites in that area, and walking into town and back to pick up goodies from the sorting office. I hope Weekend Walks will continue in 2012!

I want to find a better work/life balance this year…

Ha! It may have taken half the year, but I definitely discovered and solved the root of this problem. Let's just say that things are much better now…

I want to find a special way to celebrate my birthday this year…

Mission Accomplished, I think. :)

And so, what about for 2012...? Well, to be honest... I'm still indecided, so you'll have to wait. :P
