Pretty Resolution

Not sure about you, but clearly not procrastinating is NOT my New Years resolution this year. Like many others, the holiday season was busy and it's taken me a bit of time to recover, catch up on work and make time to sit and think long and hard about the resolutions I was going to make. I'm generally not a resolution type person. I have a few friends who like to sit down together over a cup of tea and write out all the things they want to accomplish over the year. I really admire that. It's a great way to get together and talk about your goals, how you are going to achieve them and get some loving support (gotta love girlfriend love).

So I didn't want to do the usual lose weight, eat healthy and exercise routine (although, I'll still try my best to do those things as I did put on a few holiday pounds). I have in the past resolved not to eat any sweets (I love all things baked) that was not made by someone I know. So no packaged cookies or store bought cakes. It started out well as I did my own baking but, then it all went down hill when I started to go to bakeries and cafes all over town introducing myself to the baker of the treat I was about to eat. It was not a pretty sight but, I did meet some really nice people :)

This year I decided to do things that make me feel good about myself. So what better way to feel pretty than accessorizing!! So, my resolution this year is to wear more earrings. I'm not an earring wearer. In fact I had to really jam those suckers into the holes in my ears that are barely there any more. I cleaned all the earring I have collected over the years and never wore and have been wearing them proudly (luckily the 80's are back). I even bought a new pair. I do feel pretty and girlie in them. Hopefully I'll be able to keep it up.

No matter what your resolutions are and whether you accomplish them or not, it doesn't really matter, as long as you feel good about yourself and find happiness in even the little things.

Happy New Year!
