2013, planning ahead

When I was writing every day I would find so many things interesting because I needed to post things of interest. Last year I let go of the daily post and found life less interesting – or maybe vice versa. I’m not sure. I know that I want to record a lot more of what my daughter does and what I do so I don’t lose so many of my experiences. I will do a post a day for the next year and then evaluate how it goes in a year from now. This will be my #365 project and resolution number one.

As befitting a new year I also want to do lots and lots of things and have made some resolutions. I love resolutions. I love making them more than I like doing them but nevertheless I want some goals which I know will make my life richer and happier.

Here goes. Happy 2013 to me, from me.

I liked this idea of capturing every day events – Project life – http://kapachino.info/2012/12/project-life-my-process-tips-and-going-forward-2/

One response to “2013, planning ahead”

  1. That’s a lot to work towards, Joanne. Good luck with your resolutions. I only have a few vague ones in my head, which I may still write out to make sure I do something with them.

    Happy new year!
