Here’s to 2013: My 10 New Year’s Resolutions

Comments 2 Standard

The clocks have turned and the calendars have changed as everyone around the world celebrates the arrival of January 1, 2013. A new year signals many things: a new chapter, a new story, a new adventure, a new self.

Like many people, I have my list of New Year’s resolutions prepared:

  1. Eat vegetarian… most of the time.
  2. Write every day.
  3. Read more often.
  4. Spend less, save more.
  5. Be confident.
  6. Get enough sleep and go to bed by 10 pm.
  7. Get rid of stress and invite peace.
  8. Set aside time for solitude.
  9. Accept what cannot be changed and make do with it.
  10. Let go of anger and perfectionism, and welcome spontaneous creativity.

I started off my weekday vegetarian year with vegan udon noodles — it knocked out both the vegetarian and long noodle (symbolic of long life) requirements of a New Year’s Day meal!

I hope you had a great start to 2013 — that’s right, twenty-thirteen — and that you’ll have an amazing year to come!

See y’all soon!


P.S. If you’re interested in the weekday vegetarian idea, here’s the TED talk that got me hooked!

  1. I love your resolutions. I should adopt the “write more” resolution too, because some days, I totally forget I have a blog. 🙂

    • I tried to be a part of Post-a-Day 2013 on here, and it’s so difficult! I’m frantically editing my post that I should’ve wrote a lot earlier today so I don’t break my two-day streak, haha! Although, writing every day feels surprisingly good — I feel like I accomplished something every single day!
