2010: Resolutions for the New Year, Decade

2010 Riflesso - Photographer: Francesco Marino

I was never a fan of New Year resolutions. In fact, I was so little of a fan that I never actually made any resolutions until this past year. The beginning of 2009 marked a huge turning point in my life. I was newly single, I was about to turn 21 (woohoo! It is all it is cracked up to be) and I was months away from graduating from college. The year of 2009 ended up being a HUGE year for me.

I had two New Year resolutions for 2009. The first was to say YES more often. I wanted to put myself out there more and not turn down new opportunities. I definitely lived up to that resolution. The second was to try new food. I know, it sounds lame, but I am a picky eater. I have definitely tried new food! And, it turns out, I <3 food.

So here are my 2010 New Year Resolutions:

  • Learn something Marketing /PR industry related every month. (The industry is constantly changing. This will be my best effort to stay on top of things.)
  • Pull myself away from the computer / TV when someone tries to talk to me. (Sometimes I allow myself to become so entrenched in what I am watching / reading that I become a poor listener.)
  • Keep my work desk uncluttered and more organized. (This will be the biggest challenge.)
  • Say YES more often. (I don't want to become complacent.)
  • Try more vegetables. (I despise vegetables.)
  • So those are my New Year / New Decade resolutions. I think all of them will apply throughout the decade. Hopefully, I can report progress next year.

    Do you make New Year resolutions? What will yours be?

    All my best,

    1. Oh no! You despite veggies? Why not try and mix things up a little, like roasted sweet potato with butter & cinnamon or stuffed portobella mushroom or honeyed carrots or tomato on a grilled cheese or shallots in your omelet? Good-luck!!

    2. Kate,

      I do love sweet potato! Carrots are also good, but I do not like mushroom or tomato. Especially tomato. There is something about its consistency that I just can't get over. Thanks for the recommendations!
