2010 resolutions: 2009 redux

Last year, I posted things I "resolved" to do in 2010...they were:
  • Continue to look for a new job and try to make due while I am still at my current one
  • Get active again, whether it's at the gym, practicing yoga, cleaning the apt, or shoveling snow
  • Try new things, whether it's a "cooking" a new recipe, reading a new book, meeting new people, etc.
  • Find love, however it comes to me
  • Travel someplace I have never been, whether by car, foot, or by plane
  • Let surprises happen, hopefully mostly good ones(!), that lead me to something special
Most of these items I actually did!  
  • Not only did I continue to look for a new job, but I got a new job! (thank goodness)  
  • I stayed active- helloooo, running the 5k? 
  • I tried new things- forays into dating, read new books, more attempts at "cooking", making my small screen debut for StyleBoston, rode a segway, etc...
  • Find love- hmmm, not so much
  • Traveled to Arizona- that whole state was a new adventure.
  • Surprises- they always happen, right? There have definitely been many- meeting new people, friends being engaged, my brother moving back to Boston, the feeling of actually really liking my job...to name a few.
So ya, besides finding love, I'd say I did pretty well!  So for 2011, it's time to work on the one thing that I haven't "resolved" to obtain yet.. and continue pursuing the ones that I did.   Oh, and continue to be me.

What are your 2011 resolutions?

  6. Good job on the resolutions! For a few years now I've resolved to make a conscious effort to try not to participate in gossip. This year I'd also like to work on my procrastinating and I'd like to try to be braver/not worry so much.

  7. Whoo hoo! I think you're one of the few that stuck to your resolutions. I think blogging helps ;)

  8. So glad you acheived some of your goals Jaime! I don't really have resolutions but I do want to be more active and not stress the little things so much :)

  9. O well done on achieving most of your goals! I cant even remember what my new years resolution was hehe. But for 2011 I had decided already to make the effort to form a closer bond with my sister by visiting her once a week and supposedly get rid of a certain man from my life; but the last one we will have to see because I can be so indecisive hehe. Hope you have a good new year! Bring on 2011 whohoo!

  10. It's so great to look back at the year and see all the positive things you have achieved. Sure, there is always more to be done, but we can take pride in all the goals we reached. Here's to a great 2011! - Katy
