Reach for the Stars

I was looking back at this list from last year's 30 day blog challenge, and although I kept many of my resolutions, there's always room for personal growth. This year, I hope to simplify and de-clutter my life. I've accumulated so much stuff over the years and I really need to become more organized. So that's my big, overall goal (along with completing lots of little household projects).

In addition to paring things down, I'd also like to reconnect (and stay connected) with friends and family members, especially via snail mail. I get so much joy out of a hand written card or care package, so I'm going to try and pay it forward more consistently.

I hope to curb my senseless spending (coffees, impulse check out puchases, magazines) and be able to invest in at least two classic pieces that I save for throughout the year.

Finally, I want to try to have a more positive approach to everyday occurances. It's so easy to get caught up in the latest gossip or whine about inconsequential events. I'd rather channel my energy towards something that makes me or those around me happy.

As always, I want to keep learning more about myself, accept challenges, eat more vegetables, and see more of the world. Definitely some broad goals for 2012, but I'm excited nonetheless.

What are your resolutions or aspirations for 2012?
