Take a moment (or two) to look back over the year – what’s one thing that you did in 2011 that you’re proud of? Did you follow through with a project or resolution? Did you try something new that you never thought you’d do? Did you change something about yourself? Looking back can be difficult as you remember maybe some rough patches, but also exhilarating as you realize how successfully you persevered through those hard times.

Removing the things that I completed and adding and new ideas that may come to me, Although, its funny that somehow every year it seems to stay the same. Never getting any bigger or smaller.

  • Start a library room in my house/get more books.

Even though I use audible.com & my eReader most of the time. I still love to hold a book in my hands and read & reread it if need be. I read a dozen or more books this year that I loved, with the exception of the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. I tried a dozen time to read that book, even talked to friends about it, just could not get interested in it. I may go see the movie just to get a better perspective on it.

I did complete a lot of jobs around the house this year, but still have a few to finish. I do think for the most part, I’m on track.

  • Have coffee once a week with an old friend.

I think I’ll work on this resolution again. I used to make a point to do this every week, but proved to be too much at times, but seems like this year, I’m going to branch out more.

How was your 2011?
