I don't make resolutions!
First, I figure whay wait to New Years?
If there's something I need/want to do I can start that day.

Perfect example...back in September I stated I wanted to
loose weight, well actually I've wanted to do it for a long time,
but everything just feel into place in September, timing is everything, right?
And here we are, only Jan 7, 2012 and I have lost
40 pounds! I feel so much better! and I'm proud of myself,
it took will power during Christmas!!!

I still want to loose a little more, but if I had waited for New Years
I would have just started. Now I am almost there! The best part...
I fit into jeans I haven't worn for 4 years! (yes, I kept them that long...!)

However, I am not hopeless, and what I do like to do for New Years
is pick One Little Word! (in case you've been under a rock and don"t know about
One Little Word (OLW), it is a concept by Ali Edwards and you can 
learn all about it on her blog).

 My word for this year is

I want to really focus on what matters most to me. Family, faith, 
career (lots more on this in the coming weeks).
Also, I seem to get a bit side tracked, for instance with
scrapbooking. My interests are all over the place, mini books,
 art journals, blog, challenge sites, you know how it is, right?
I want to focus on the telling the story this year.

2011 was a good year. I think I can make 2012 a great year!
That will be my main focus!

do you have a word?
