I am really horrible with New Years resolutions. I have kept only one resolution in my entire 24 years and it was last year’s resolution to not flat iron my hair (and eve that I have broken on several occasions). I do better when I mentally prepare myself for the resolution and have all the necessary tools and accoutrements to achieve my goal. This year I am setting a few goals for myself early, so I can dive right in on the 1st:
1) Start a ballet class and stick to it no matter how stupid and football playeresque I feel initially. And preferably do it wearing these shoes, availiable here: http://www.bonadrag.com/shopmain/bags/ballet.html?reload
2) Learn to crochet a granny squares blanket. I so desperately want one and I so desperately want to make it myself. Exactly like this one, in lots of fun bright colors:
3) Put myself together every single day, even if it just means jeans and a t-shirt…add a necklace, wear boots instead of flip-flops, and do my hair so I dont look homeless. Im not talking full on glamour every day, I just want to get more mileage out of the beautiful things in my closet and feel more confident about how I am presenting myself to the world.
*I do have some personal resolutions that aren’t so vapid and shallow (I promise).
