I'm not a big fan of New Year's resolutions. I did make one last NYE, however. I wanted more joy in my life, so I resolved to dance (at least a little) every day this year. And I have to tell you, it was awesome! And it is the only resolution I've ever made that made me happy each and every time I acted on it.

So I'm working on a similar resolution for 2014. One that brings me happiness rather than feeling like an obligation. Several ideas bouncing around in my head still, but I have a couple of days before I make the call.

Anyone want to join me in making a joyful resolution?

I resolve to cackle joyfully in public and feel no shame.

I'll join in -- but I'm gonna have to give some thought as to what my resolution will be.

LOVE the dance resolution

Thank you NIK, I love it enough to make it a resolution for 2014!

And my other resolution would have to be not to care what I look like when I dance, just get up and dance!

The timing of your post is perfect...I had just got done registering for a belly-dance class, something I've wanted to do for a long time. First class starts January 5 and I've talked my friend and her daughter into joining me too.

A few years ago I resolved to make no more New Year's resolutions and I have managed to follow through.

Out of respect for the Empress, I resolve to smile in public at least once this year.

I'll take it! Yay!

I resolve to take it as it comes. Whatever it is.

Also, I resolve to go on a trip, or several. I don't know how or where, but I want to, so I will.

Go, meta!

A friend makes a list of 101 things to do in the New Year.

I'm boring. I can't come up with 101 things to do. My list is stalled at 53 things to do in 2014.

Anyway, one of the things on my list for 2013 was to dance everyday.

Love it, travels! Not sure I could even come up with 53.

I did the MC Hammer dance at Jersey Mike's today.

I resolve to hug my DS a little more often and a little tighter every single day... He's growing up so fast.

I resolve to laugh out loud with my family everyday... in some way over anything we can find to laugh about.

I resolve to find joy in the everyday!

nowiknow23 posted 12/27/2013 21:19 PM

Yay, jrc!

I always resolve to be a better mom, sister, daughter, and friend. That's always my number one.

But, I do have two others.

The first is to start piecing together the quilt that my great aunt was making for me when she died. She left behind all of the pre-made squares, some sections that were put together, and tons of squares that need to be filled and stitched up. I would feel kind of amazing if I did that.

The other is to Write The Novel. I have been wanting to do that for years. Maybe putting together the quilt is more realistic!

Anyway, I'm putting those out there to encourage some follow-through on my part!

So far mine are:

1. quit smoking (again, already using e-cigs so trying)

2. be a better housekeeper

3. get a job
