My List of Ten for 2012

All week I’ve been planning to post about one of my favorite things…New Year’s Resolutions! But while I was reading some of my favorite blogs on the topic and something dawned on me like an orange globe in a pink winter sunrise…

I can’t say it better myself, so I won’t even try. 

Whether they scare you or excite you, whether you make tons, or make it your goal not to make any at all, I highly recommend these great reads…

Tsh detailed two tips to actually make progress on your goals. Laura shared how she’s rejecting the automation her Type-A self is so good at, and making completely different sorts of goals this year. If you only make one goal, let it be this one, summed up in Kat’s 12 word post. Tiny Twig took a fun, casual approach, and I’m inspired by her list of ten. That’s doable.

So, here’s mine – shared with you because accountability is one of the secrets to success.

1. Beautify my studio. You know it’s bad ’cause you saw the video.
2. Try the GAPS diet for a month. We’re 5 days in…follow our journey at Real {Fast} Food Facebook page.
3. Learn to make Kimchi. DONE! Did it this morning! Three days till we find if it’s edible.
4. Be a reader of books. I plan to drown myself in books. Yum.
5. Study Massage Therapy. A life-long dream. I’m finally taking steps this year.
6. Finish Deep Cleaning every corner of this old house.
7. Have a Garage Sale with the findings.
8. Be the person I want my kids to grow up to be. So much in 12 words.
9. Keep track of every penny I spend in cash.
10. Take this seriously: Thousand Gift’s Challenge.

To find out just why I love New Year’s Resolutions so much, and how I transform them from resolutions to predictions, check out my little post over at YLCF this week.

Do you make ‘em? Love ‘em? Hate ‘em? Go ahead, rant. I’ll listen.

P.S. Don’t miss this – Lindsay’s blog goals for the new year promise some really good reading over at Passionate Homemaking in the coming months. I’m so inspired by her passion for Spirit-led content, and excited and challenged to be part of the team.

Thriving in Survival Mode

I've been in survival mode lately. Those who know me in person have seen the dark circles under my eyes and they are kind enough to ask me how I'm doing when it's obvious the answer will be dark and depressing. I've been crying in public places and … Read More...

Celebrating With Food, or, How to Grill Pizza

We forgot the bacon-wrapped dates. She’d come 1000 miles and brought Shauna Niequest’s book with the famed recipe. We’d made a special trip to Aldi’s just for the goat cheese for that recipe. (In our swimming clothes, fresh off of cliff jumping … Read More...

    I'm curious… Have you tried the kimchi yet? I ordered it over 5 years ago at a little dim sum restaurant and was expecting a hot dish. When I put it in my mouth and found it was cold (and rather icky tasting), I immediately spit it out. Can't say that I've had very good experiences with it since then. It kind of grosses me out. And I like just about anything!!! It's big up here, seeing as there are so many Asian transplants. Someone gave us a homemade batch for Christmas, but other than a little taste, it's just been sitting in the fridge. Interested to hear what your experience will be with it. Oh, and making my own kraut has flopped all but one time that I've done it. Easier said than done, I think…
