the problem with resolutions

Can we all agree that the problem with resolutions is that we resolve to do the thing that we don't want to do? Sure, our resolutions may be good for us, but committing to do something that's already difficult doesn't mean it'll work - statistically speaking.

That's why I propose we create annual resolutions of things we love. Kind of a "this is what I love and I'm going to keep doing it" list.

And with that thought in mind, here's my list of 2013 resolutions...

What would be at the top of your new and improved "resolution" list?


  1. I've got a long list of goals and none of them seem as appealing as that dark chocolate and and blueberries. I may need to re-think mine. Thanks for the wonderful images and I hope you really do get to enjoy your year!

  2. Oh, I like these kind of resolutions! I resolve to have more tea parties, and to also play more with my camera!

  3. I am definitely going to play with my camera this year! You are inspiring me! Love the frames and fonts. I have looked at picmonkey for frames.. none as nice as that see through one!!?? Thank you for the calendars.. am going to get some proper paper and print one.. am in love with that sweet bird!

  4. They all look wonderful! The camera is a HUGE one on my list.

    Happy New Year!

  5. Im horrible at keeping resolutions so I decided not to make any this year,, just strive to really live and enjoy life,, I find myself saying "no" to the simplest of things sometimes out of fear of what could go wrong. So that's really my only goal for this year is to LIVE without fear of the unknown.

    I love the new calendars.
    Happy New year

  6. Hear hear :-) Those are super resolutions. Ours are to continue to waltz into the new year among other things :
    Happy New Year!

  7. I could not agree with you more, on the whole "resolution" thing.
    I LOVE your resolutions!
    Wishing you all wonderful things in 2013

  8. I lOVE your take on resolutions - you've got me thinking......
