2013 resolutions in detail

Wow, can you believe that it’s already close to the end of January 2013? It seemed as if it was December 2012 was just yesterday!

Earlier in January, I came up with a list of resolutions for the year. Now I don’t usually make them because I always have problems keeping to them but I decided, why not try and give myself a couple of goals? I made the list more specific by breaking them down according to certain aspects of my life.

I’ll probably print out this list and place it somewhere visible to remind me of it…like the bathroom, kitchen (fridge) and our bedroom. Oh, the list will be subject to change (additions mostly…).
