There is a lot of talk about New Year’s Resolutions all over the blogosphere. I was trying to avoid it, but it seems as though I cannot. I try not to make the usual resolutions: exercise more; eat less; lay off the wine; call my mom more or less because once I set the resolution, it seems to become a major focal point of mine. As in the old saying, “Forbidden Fruit is the Sweetest”, that is what happens with my resolutions. Traditional Resolutions are usually about giving up or limiting something. The more I try to limit myself, the more I think about what I am trying to avoid. Earlier this week, I had the smallest thought of trying to give up sweets, and the next thing I know, I am arranging for a cupcake date on Friday with my cupcake eating friend (you know exactly who you are). MMMMM…I am dreaming of cupcakes from Vanilla already.
I guess that is what is happening with trying not to blog about resolutions. The more I told myself that I was not going to do it, the more that I had a desperate need to write about my resolve for 2011. So – here you go…
This year, I am taking a positive spin on resolutions. I am not going to limit or deny myself anything. I will be abundant and positive in the way that I conquer 2011.
What do I mean by abundant? I am going to lessen the negative, and pump up the positive. Example – I love spinning (especially when Laurie is teaching), so I have resolved to spin 3 times a week in 2011 rather than 2 times like I did in 2010. This resolution leads to the same result as “I need to lose weight” except through a positive thought process. I am being abundant to achieve my goals.
I am planning on attacking my mompreneurial braduct with the same abundance. Abundance for what, you ask? An abundant love, passion, & patience for the project. I am going to approach the prototyping phase as if it is a newborn with an ever developing personality, not wanting to rush any stage. This positive karma evokes the same change as saying “I will be more patient” while not making me feel like I am punishing myself.
Which brings me to the prototype – I know that you all want me to get to the mock-up of the prototype and the meeting with “Prototype Guy” this week, but writing about resolutions became necessary. I will write very soon, and there will be a lot of fun to go along with it! Let’s just say that Prototype Guy and I are planning a bra shopping field trip!
Wishing you all an abundant 2011! RB
