I have been thinking about New Year resolutions the past couple of days and trying to figure out what I want out of next year. I don't always make formal resolutions but I do like to think about the coming year and what it may bring. No matter what you plan life always throws a few curve balls! Last year my one and only resolution was to go back to being a stay at home mom. It took 8 months but I finally got there. So now I need to think of something new.

I have been working on my goals that I wrote down a couple posts ago. Some have failed for the moment (exercising being the big one), some are doing really well (I am cooking more and reading more) and some are in limited progress (still haven't started that cross stitch yet). I want to continue these goals. I have really liked all of the books I have read. I finished the City of Ember series and it was great. I highly recommend it. I also just got done with Cheating Death by Dr. Sanjay Gupta and it was extremely interesting. It is a miracle the things that modern medicine can do these days!

So what am I going to work on this year? I am trying to think of something big that I can do. I could say that I want to be a better mom but that is kind of vague and not really easy to measure. I have thought about doing something gospel centered because that would probably help me with a lot of issues that I feel that I have but I don't really know what to do. I have thought about having my sister teach me how to study the scriptures better. Who would know better than a return missionary?

I know I am kind of rambling but it is something that is on my mind and I feel like I need some focus. What do you do for your resolutions? I need all the help I can get.

I have seen around blog world (last January, and I couldn't find any for examples, sorry) where people choose a word as a theme for the year. Whatever word you want to mean the most to you that year. For example, Joy. Happiness. Relax! Breathe. You get the idea. Anyway, you do stuff like print the word and post it places in your house to remind yourself of your theme for the year. Each morning you think of what you can do to try to make that word come to life for you. Etc, etc. Does this make sense? It seemed like a really cool idea when I was reading it on other people's blogs.
