Every year I come up with the same resolutions as most of the western world and the same resolutions are broken every year. This year, this year of the goddess magic number 13, my 33rd year…..I am doing something different. I am not going to resolve to eat less meat or more meat, I am not going to resolve to stop smoking (cause I did it in June 2011 BOOM).

I am not going to resolve to drink less or cuss less or focus on any of the things I find negative about myself. Even the world resolution implies a problem….I am changing my perspective and I am going to focus on things that are positive. With that in mind, I share with you the following 10 determinations as always to be shared in this public forum as a means of keeping myself accountable. Salud.
  1. I shall continue my self-care through various means of self-development such as painting, continuing affirmations, meditation, finishing my french courses, blogging, playing my guitar, writing poetry, yoga, walking, etc. 
  2. I shall finish the following workbooks and actually do the work…When I got with my husband I stopped the work and that was a mistake: You can Heal your life by Louise Hays and my new one Getting Unstuck by Karen Casey.
  3. I shall continue to establish, reestablish and strengthen my own boundaries.
  4. I shall only encourage and accept things that make me glow into my life.
  5. I shall strive to meet people where they are.
  6. I shall read for knowledge, enlightenment, pleasure and requirement…in balance.
  7. I shall strive for balance in all things and be ever mindful of this immediate goal.
  8. I shall be outside, in nature as often as possible, with and without purpose, even if this means the death of my facebook.
  9. I shall let go of things and reduce my clutter. Physically, mentally and abstractually.
  10. I shall work to stay present.
