Resolve: 2013

It is the nineteenth, and I'm finally getting around to resolutions...

Because I'm on top of life...


Some days I feel like the world spins faster than I can keep up with.

There is just so much that I want to do...

I want to explore the current setting of my life, expand my mind, learn to knit, finish the Old Testament, and fill the empty pages in my journal with thoughts, memories, and love notes to my posterity.

I want to read a mountain of literature, learn the history of my family, write more letters, improve my relationships, sing more show tunes, maybe even try my hand at embroidery.

I want to taste new flavors, organize my belongings, make a quilt, play with  my son, and surround myself with that which I believe to be beautiful.

I want to write, create, photograph, learn, and dream.

I want to win my fight with apathy,

To forget about anxiety.

I want to stop the world from spinning away from me

I want to approach my life deliberately, with intention and purpose.

I want to be present.

And I want to be happy.


  1. I love this. I love how it's written, I love your plans for self-improvement, I love your plans, ... I just love it.

    And yea! You're on Goodreads!

  2. I don't think I finished my thought ... I think most of all I love that you're having the same feelings I am. That I'm not alone in the "spinning world" feeling. I think that's what I'm trying to say ... and it's the 23rd and I'm still considering my resolutions. :)

  3. "Present" is the hardest one for me to grasp at times. Great resolutions!
