To Resolute or not to Resolute...

...that is the question. I know more people who never make resolutions than people who do. Why is that? I think it's because we make resolutions that only end up making us feel like a failure by the end of the year - or maybe even by the end of the month!

I've done it both ways. And 2012 will be a resolution year for me.


That's my resolution. What that means to me is that I intend to simplify my home and subsequently, my life. On a more practical level, it means that I will keep Goodwill, Freecycle, and Ebay busy this year.

So, what about you? Do you have a resolution this year? Or maybe intention is a better word. What do you intend to do this year? ~Karen

I don't like to make resolutions, because I usually fail at them spectacularly. So instead, I make gentle goals for myself, with room for stumbles. :-)

Happy New Year!
