resolutions of joy and wonder

I’ve never been one given to making New Years resolutions. However the idea came to me today to make a few resolutions based on pleasure. Maybe the snow and cold have me thinking of things I regret not doing more of in the past couple of years, things that I truly enjoy that bring me a sense of beauty and wonder. Whatever the case may be, here are a few of my New Year’s resolutions for 2009.

my joy & wonder resolutions for 2009:

plant more flowers

listen to music more often and dance and sing along!

spend more time on a blanket under the stars

So, I bet you can think of a thing or two that brings you joy and wonder or are just plain fun. Things you’d like to do more of just for the sheer pleasure of it. Do tell!


  1. I agree!!!...also, i think all those resolutions will be much easier to keep than losing 10 pounds lol! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  2. Happy New Year Earth Heart.
    I was just thinking about this, this morning.

    I really want to get back into cooking from scratch more. With school and homework, cooking had become a chore in a way. Since I have been on this short winter break I have been using some of my cookbooks again, and just trying new things. Thank God for it, because mentally I have been fighting. So yeah, for me, more homemade cooking and definitely more time spent in my garden.
