Reflections & Resolutions

Boots: Nordstrom 'Cassidy' Faux Leather Boot.  Headband: Gap Kids. Yamaha Guitar.
We are now into one week of 2013, so how are those resolutions working out?  This year I chose not to rush in to declaring what mine would be.  Let's face it, everyone has heard the "lose five pounds, get organized, eat more veggies!" resolutions.  I decided to reflect on how 2012 turned out first.  

2012 was my mid-life crisis year. I vowed to figure out "what am I going to do with the rest of my life?".  I'll admit that I'm not sure I figured it out completely.  But (big  BUT), I did make some progress and stepped a bit out of my comfort zone.  First, I took up a new hobby, Pottery, which I have always wanted to try.  Secondly, I started a new project, this blog (HUGE leap out of my comfort zone!).  So I would coin 2012 as my year of change. Change is good, right?

You are probably wondering what the above images have to do with resolutions.  I recently took these photos of Ms. T in the outfit her uncle sent her for Christmas.  He also generously gave her the guitar too since she has expressed interest in playing.  Looking at these photos, I realized how I wanted my upcoming year to reflect the fun, daring, carefreeness that my daughter always exhibits. Thus, I have chosen to take a cue from Ms. T and that 2013 will be my "colorful" year.  No more black or grey in my closet (I swear!). I declare to wear more color, to take more fashion risks, and add some fun to my wardrobe (but I'm still not buying into those Anthropologie Overalls!).  More importantly though, I want to be more colorful in spirit; brighter, bolder and joyful in life!

Have you made any interesting resolutions for 2013?  We would love to hear them!  Please share in the comments section below.
