Happy New Year Resolutions – Aloha Friday Follow Fun

Happy Aloha Friday


(and Happy New Year)!

From Kailani at An Island Life:
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So on Fridays let’s take it easy on posting, too. Ask a simple question…nothing that requires a lengthy response. It’s a great way to make new blogging friends!

Happy New Year(‘s Eve)! It’s hard to fathom that this year is done – did it seem to fly by super fast to anyone else?  My question for this week is:

Do you (or will you) be making any New Year Resolutions?

I used to be all into the resolution making, determined to keep those resolutions no matter what.  Now, not so much.  Mostly because I always set the bar too high for myself, then felt like a failure when I didn’t accomplish all of the resolutions made.  So now I’m not going to set myself up for failure – that’s no way to start a new year!

Instead, I have random mental ‘resolutions’ in my head – if they come to fruition, score!

What about you?  Do you make New Year Resolutions for yourself, and how does that work out for you?  Or are you going to wing it in the New Year like I am?

Wishing you a Happy and Safe New Year!  Here’s to an awesome 2011! *clink*

About Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance and I chose to become a SAHM and WAHM - I love every minute of it. We added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension to our family. We have an eclectic mix of pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish. I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway. I blog about the joys of parenting, family, friends, life, love and anything else that strikes my fancy. I do enjoy doing reviews and giveaways for products I use, believe in and can stand behind.

  1. My New Years’ resolution last year was “TRY”. Just one word and I did okay with it. This year I haven’t picked my word yet. But I am sure it will be along the same line!
    Hugs and Happy New Year to you too

  2. I don’t usually make a formal list of resolutions. I just keep some things in the back of my mind. This year, I know I want to exercise more, which will involve some sort of reward on my part because I hate to exercise.

  3. I don’t really make resolutions, but just try to keep in mind changes I want to make in my life.

    I hope you have a wonderful New Year’s!

  4. I make the same resolution every year, and that is to lose weight. I’ve had a weight problem all my life. I need to find a new way of life that I like, and I can live with, and am still searching. So Happy New Year my friend I wish nothing, but the best for you, and yours.

  5. I usually never make resolutions. However last year I made a resolution to stand up for myself more and did exactly that. It drove alot of people away who started to ask me’ what about the nice , godly Colette that I used to know?”

    They were upset for this change.

    This year I might make another to boost that one I made.

  6. I set out to make a list of personal goals for 2011, but (for several reasons) it just hasn’t been a good time for me to do that. So I’m sticking with my usual resolutions: exercise more, weigh less. 🙂

    Happy New Year!

  7. I am resolving to let other people do stuff for me. I know this sounds like all I want to do is sit around in a tiara and eat bon bons on the couch, but it really is my resolution because I am a bit of a control freak. (And I just found the perfect tiara)

  8. Hi Stacy, my resolutions are regularly updated, deleted, initiated and contemplated throughout the year. Once a year is not enough for a leftover hippie like me. I wish you every happiness in the next year.

  9. I don’t make resolutions. I think it i a little too formalized for me. I do have things I am planning to change for 2011 but nothing so formal as a resolution.

  10. I’ve been thinking about my grammar and trying to improve on it. I have a tendency to write some pretty bad and draggy run on sentences. If I could loan my son about 4 of my run on words, maybe he can learn to write a more then 5word sentence?

  11. Happy New Year! Nope, no resolutions here. Fruition – I like that word. It’s like if it happens that you have seen the future. My take on it.
