I resolve...


I know today is Tuesday and that you have all been craving your weekly dose of Tasty Tuesdays since I have taken a short holiday break from blogging, but I want to share some New Year's resolutions I made for 2012 and hear what you all have resolved to change or update in the coming year. I can't wait to let you in on the tasty dessert I whipped up for Christmas eve dinner next Tuesday!

2011 brought me its fair share of challenges and triumphs. Sometimes I can't believe how I got through it alive, but we humans seem to be stronger than we think and are quite resilient against the forces of nature. One thing it taught me is that tomorrow is another day and today's stresses and anxieties will fade into the hope of the coming day. Everywhere I look and listen, I see, read, and hear that great change is coming in 2012. Change has a funny way about it - it can either motivate you to achieve greater things for yourself and those around you or push you to the brink of breaking. The latter seemed to be true for me in the final days of the year, but I know better things await me in the turn as long as I stick to the resolutions I recently made:

//Travel more, often, and with purpose.

//Speak my mind to those who do me wrong.

//Try to exercise three times a week. Maintaining weight is no longer an option. Lose, lose, lose!

//Be more aggressive in aiming for and reaching my goals.

//Be more resistant to anxieties about the past and the future. Live in the present to find peace. 

//Cherish things that have been lost and recognize the importance of what remains.

Happy new year!
xoxo
