Mine was a single word. Productivity. And a thought to go with it. "I cannot say yes to everyone that asks something of me, I can be incredibly productive to what I choose to say yes to."

 

There ya go. Hopefully my year in a nutshell. Anyone else?

That is a wonderful one!  I usually resolve to lose weight, then I don't do it and then I am disappointed in myself.  This year I decided to do something that would make me feel good without feeling judgmental about myself.

 

1. Spend more time with my friends.

 

2. Grow more of our own food.

 

3. Learn to crochet socks!

 

Those resolutions made me happy!

I'd like to get better at maintaining my own peace of mind.  All my life I've let the emotions of others determine what I prioritize . . . my parents trained me to do that for them.  It's crippling, and the tendency has at times robbed my kids of a grounded, more adult mother.  Funny enough, my mother moving in with us is the catalyst for this -- I realized I don't want to spend my entire life waiting until things are ideal before I can feel safe and happy; that would just be another way of saying that what matters to me doesn't matter.

 

Both of you said it really well, too.  Reading your posts is like hearing someone say what they want their life to look like instead of what they want to get rid of, and that's a heartening approach to go after something without bitterness or unkindness.
