Joyful Resolutions

As awesome as 2011 was, I have a feeling that 2012 is going to be even better.
My theme for the new year is JOY.



I know that this will be a joyful year.
For starters, my best friend is getting married in June!
And my favorite cousin is getting married in September!
Both weddings are going to be the weddings of the century!!!!!


I want to celebrate joy with my husband through being the best wife that I can be.
I want to experience joy through daily duties- like housework and project completing.

I made my Resolutions this year to be centered around JOY.

I LOVE making New Years Resolutions.

There's something about that last digit in the year switching from a 1 to a 2
(or whatever it is each year)
that motivates me and pumps me up for change!

This year I've set forth a more challenging list of resolutions.
And sharing them with you, my faithful reader, is what helps me stick to them.


1.  DECLUTTER
This is a boring, self-explanatory one.
My goal is to get rid of all sorts of clutter (although my husband always says:
"what clutter?")
(which makes me secretly smile and think my job will be easy).

My hope is that this brings even more joy to our home.

I found this online and thought it would be a helpful guide to follow along with.


2.  KEEP IN TOUCH
What a simple way to bring joy into others' lives!
I have said this before on my blog, but I really really really really miss writing letters.
In highschool, I used to write one letter each day.
EVERY DAY!!!
And I usually got answers to my letters, which means I was getting mail several days a week!
It's my goal in 2012 to write more letters.  At least one a week.
A small challenge compared to what I did back in highschool.
(But considering I don't have a boring geography class to sit through today...should still be a challenge.)
I am not even looking for responses, although it'd be pretty sweet to get mail other than cell phone and car bills!
The great thing about writing letters other than potentially making someone's day is the fact that you have that letter/card forever.
I have boxes of letters that I have received throughout the years.
It's so fun to go through and read some.  It represents that part of my life.
This is my biggest goal this year, and I am thinking about also tweaking it a bit during Lent to turn
it into something sacrificial.


How peaceful.


3.  DOUBLE THE FOLLOWERS
Ok, this one is a major stretch, and has a selfish reason behind it (to bring joy to me).
I have 6 followers on blogger right now.  My goal is to write in my blog often enough to gain more followers.
Say, to 12?
I know it can be done because other greats before me have had hundreds/thousands of followers.
I know I have lotsa readers out there, but I hope to gain some more followers.
Wouldn't that be cool?
Unless of course "following" is so 2009, and the cool thing to do now is to merely add the blog to the favorites bar.
In that case, I just hope to up my readership.  No specific number in mind on that one.


4.  START/FINISH CRAFTS/PROJECTS
I have a lot I want to do in the coming year as far as this category goes.
I want to:
make George a dog bed (he uses Sadie's and it's too small for him)
finally get around to designing and decorating our bedroom
learn how to refinish furniture.


That is it for now.  There are a few more private ones that I won't share until they are actually fulfilled.
Like my financial goals.
Which, so far, we are already off to a great start.

Happy 2012 to everyone!  May it be the most joyful one yet!
