Happy 2010!



Finally the new year is here! I've been looking forward to 2010 for a fresh start. 2009 wasn't that bad for me, but I feel that I squandered some opportunities and didn't really work on areas that I wanted to improve.

My resolutions for 2010 are much simpler than last year's. Basically, I've decided to work on these 3 issues in my life that I've been having trouble with:

-Prioritization
-Procrastination
-Minimalism

The first two go hand-in-hand, as I've slipped into a nasty habit of procrastination since graduating, always thinking: "I'll just do it another time...". There are so many things I want to accomplish but never have the time for. This year I feel that I've identified my priorities in life and so I plan to be more disciplined, and work on the things that really matter the most to me first over other less important things.

At the same time, I've been reading Fabulously Broke's blog for a while now and am becoming more interested in the minimalist idea. You all have an idea of just how much makeup I own, and it really is getting out of control. I had to move to a new place a month ago, and the packing process made me realise how much stuff I have that I really don't use. I doubt I'll get as far as a true minimalist would, but I definitely want to get rid of the clutter I don't use and refrain from buying more things unless they are absolute necessities.

Anyway best wishes for 2010, and good luck with your goals for this year! :D

Happy New Year!!! :D

Good luck with your resolutions as well!! I don't think I could ever be a true minimalist the way my SO is... but I'm definitely working that into my resolutions too!

Happy 2010 to you too! :)

Procrastination is something I wrestle with all the time. Time I get that issue over and done with!

I too need to minimize a lot of the things I have, I think that tends to be a New Year's Resolution for a lot of people. I will check out Fabulously Broke, I have not read that blog before.
