i have never really made new year's resolutions. as my favorite hobby is self-improvement, i make resolutions all year long.  some i keep, some i don't.  what i don't do is decide one day to begin to do something forever and expect my mind to stay on board the boat.  i'm a gradual girl.  i've found that a blast of motivation is essential early on, but it's the slow burn that manifests the idea as reality.

so, my new year's resolution 2012?  stoking the fire.

i resolve to engage and play and stay interested. in april, that may mean something different to me than it does now.  by october, i will undoubtedly have conceived new methods and new tools for new goals. gathering my wood and preparing my kindling, i wish to be constantly mindful (or a close likeness) of how i'm approaching my thoughts, my challenges, and all those accomplishments that the new year will bring.

happy new year!

100th post : winter wonder

winter is a mysterious, exciting, beautiful, and wonderfully transformative time.  such reflection on what has been and such anticipation for what is to come. for me, present events are far and away noteworthy, as i'm sure they are for most folks this december. although personal, i can say these transpirings have been complete game changers. not the least of which is the return of silk nog.

stay cozy.
