2012I love New Year’s. There is something fun about looking back at the past year and I really enjoy the optimism for the future.  In particular I love New Year’s resolutions. I’ve done a pretty good job of sticking to some of mine from the past two years and I’m hoping 2012 is a continuation of that. I thought I would share this year’s goals…

  1. Dance Everyday 2012: I am going to dance everyday in 2012 for a minimum of 10 seconds and preferably in a new location. I’ll track this with #danceeveryday2012. So far, it has been a lot of fun.
  2. Become ambidextrous. Particularly learn how to write with my left hand but grow more comfortable using a mouse, cutting with knives and other tasks I would generally use my right hand for.
  3. Don’t speak ill of others. I would like to start practicing more Right Speech and not say anything about someone that I wouldn’t say with them in the room.
  4. Start playing the Cello. I’m currently looking for a $50 cello. My friend replied, “Finding a cello for under $50 is easy, playing a cello that’s worth less than $50 is impossible.”
  5. Sit up straight. My posture is terrible and I’m learning from my seated meditation how much better I can breath and feel by maintaining a proper posture.
  6. Learn more words. I found a really cool app that pulls several different “words of the day” from online and displays them daily. I am going to commit to reading that everyday and taking the quizzes in the app to test my retention.
  7. Add morning meditation back into my schedule. I’ve been doing good sitting at least one, generally two sessions at night but since I started going to work at 7:30ish I have not being starting my day off right.
  8. Learn something about basketball.  I have a brother-in-law who’s a coach so this one shouldn’t be too hard.

There are a few wrap up resolutions from last year…

  1. Lose my last 12 lbs. (of my 62 lbs. goal)
  2. Finish my photo a day project from 2011.
  3. Absolutely no high fructose corn syrup under any circumstance.

Happy New Year to everyone!
